I am a fan of Gareth Pugh. At the London Fashion Week A/W '08 a cold shower ran down my neck when I saw his collection. The architecture and the fabrics he uses combined with the cuts are mind blowing. After winning the ANDAM Award he now showed in Paris for the first time. A little disappointing, though expected is that the collection is less abstract and more wearable than before in London. The enfant terrible is growing up. See the London video about his A/W '08 collection here and the video with his S/S '09 collection from Paris here. Via Style.com

Sexten... This sunday sport is not quite what you might have thought. "Sextner Dolomites" is an area in the Italian Alps. And it is not just any area. Around the villages Sexten, Moos and Innichen are many beautiful mountains worth hiking up and down. The last two photos show me yesterday on Monte Piano.

This summer David Byrne(Talking Heads) installed cables and devices all over the Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan. With the cables connected to a piano, the audience was invited to play the building through the keyboard. Cool Hunting's Tim Yu was there to film the event.

Kittiwat Unarrom bakes body parts, Daniel Spoerri hangs his dinner table up the wall, Dieter Roth frames chocolate - they all make "Eat Art". First coined during the sixties Fluxus movement by Daniel Spoerri, this term now lives on. Hobnox features two recent Eat Art performances. In "Eat the Wall" by Spanish collective Ali&Cia the visitors have to eat their way through to their friends. The walkable installation "Bread & Bunker by Israeli artist Shahar Marcus consists of five video works and 1500 loaves of bread. If this report wets your appetite, also watch Cool Hunting's report about Kittiwat Unarrom's body part bakery. Yummmy...

Girls, Ladies, werte Damen - tomorrow at 14h we have a ladiez only bike polo gathering. It was so much fun the last time. The video shows Milwaukee's ladies bike gang Pedal Pusher Society. I suggest as a name for Berlin's first female bike gang: "Bike Betty's" (like the song "Black Betty" and the term "Skate Betty"). But let's discuss better names tomorrow at 2pm at Wassertorplatz or if it is wet at Franz-Klühsstr. basketball court. I am looking forward to see you all. More on Bike Polo Berlin's site.

The Rotatorhead is the core element of Japanese artist Ujino Muneteru's acustic performance. Attached above the record, these wooden bridges control the sound of electronic goods. When I arrived at PSM gallery, the main performance was over. Watching the film, you will see, that only two Rotators already make a lot of noise. To see the real deal I suggest to be at the gallery this Saturday between eight and nine pm, when the perfomance will be reenacted. Meanwhile there is an interview with Ujino Muneteru on PingMag, where YouTube films with other Rotator-performances are embeded.
