PRINT OR DYE EXHIBITION

The Print or Dye exhibition opened over the weekend at Open House Creative, and it was rad. So many lovely creative people in one room. Here are some photos from the night. Sending out a big thank you to Sophie, Kameron, and Michele for having me. <3

PSYCHO (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO) – THE SHINING TWINS

PSYCHO (Official Music Video) – The Shining Twins from Amber B Dianda on Vimeo.

PSYCHO MUSIC VIDEO PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Amber B Dianda presents the official music video for “Psycho” by The Shining Twins. Watch the punk duet perform their hit song on stage, while a few friends crash the party.

ABOUT THE MUSIC VIDEO:
Created by Amber B Dianda, the music video was inspired when a box of socks appeared at her front door courtesy of Stance socks. WithThe Shining Twins playing in her head, rather than putting the socks on her feet, Amber was inspired to make sock puppets instead… And so a music video was conceived.

Hand-sewn by Amber, the puppets were created to caricaturize Alex Weiss and Marisa Kreiss, aka The Shining Twins. But no band is complete without groupies to dance, drink, and run-a-muck. So when the stage was set, the band of merry pranksters joined in for the fun.

ABOUT THE SHINING TWINS:
The Shining Twins is an all-girl punk duet, starring Alex Weiss and Marisa Kreiss. “Pyscho” was one of the first songs they ever wrote and recorded on “Cum Play With Us” which was their inaugural album. The song recorded by heartthrob, Loren “Ted” Humphrey (Guards) at his studio in Bushwick, NY, with Alex on Bass and Marisa on drums. Both girls lend their voice on the raw and sinister lyrics about failed relationships, and losing your grip on reality.

ABOUT AMBER B AND KIRK DIANDA:
Amber B has been sewing creatures as long as she could thread a needle, and has since exhibited them around the world. From Australia, Austria, Japan, Los Angeles, New York, and most notably as a front window installation to Parisian boutique, Colette, Amber’s creatures have travelled the world.

Kirk Dianda is best known for his storytelling and filmmaking within the skateboard world. He recently edited “Dreamland” the internet sensation starring Bob Burnquist, along with “Soul Rebel” the Mark Appleyard video, Nyjah Huston’s gold-medal winning Real Street video part, and “Rise & Shine” the #1 iTunes video part. Historians may know Kirk for his long-standing involvement with 411VM, and for creating the cult classic; ON Video.

Amber and Kirk regularly collaborate on projects, ranging from product design to film and photo essays, but the “Psycho” music video will go down in history as their favorite co-op thus far.

MR ANCHOR

Hello Family & Friends,

I have been working around the clock for my SUMMERWINTER exhibition which opens in LA on Friday, July 16th. Everything is coming together beautifully, and I can’t wait to show you all what I have created!

Kirk has been working on a beautiful short film that narrates the story of the art show, and it’s set to a soundtrack composed by Loren Humphrey.

I would also like to thank all the amazing people who have helped in preparation for this exhibition:

Jeremy Mora for his beautiful gallery; POVevolving, Todd Rogers for sound engineering, Matt Tammariello for sound effects, Loren Humphrey for the soundtrack, Luis Ramirez for printing help, Honest Tea and PBR for the drinks, Nylon TV for the coverage, and a very special thank you to Element for all your love and support!

Our goal is to raise $500 for Elemental Awareness, which is an organization that reaches out to under-privileged kids through skateboarding and wilderness skills. I created a limited edition of 10 hand-sewn, hand-screened totes that are packed with goodies from our sponsors, and will be sold to raise money for EA.

Inside each tote is an AB zine from the exhibition, an organic Element T-shirt, and an Element Eden wallet, along with stickers, Honest Tea drinks, and a copy of Nylon… So the first ten people to donate $50 will recieve one of these limited edition, hand made, gift bags.

I will also be launching a special line of ombré dyed scarves, which are grade 50, 100% Cheese cloth that will thread the exhibition together by combining black and white, to make grey.

New ‘zines are hot of the press, and will also be available! (If you’re a self-publisher & zine fan, bring yours to the show and we’ll swap!)

Lastly, check out this interview by Isaac McKay-Randozzi from Juxtapoz!

Thank you, and I hope to see you there!

MEDIA RELEASE

SUMMERWINTER was born after my Autumn inspired show at colette in Paris, the natural progression was to explore other seasons. So about a year ago, I started observe the dance between the northern and southern hemispheres, and how opposites attract. I love the idea that one can not exist without the other. So in the end, it was the idea of all things opposite, and how they are also the same that inspired me… Black and white.

For this show I took a minimalist approach, which was inspired by my husband. I have always been about color, but in this show I kept it black, white, and grey. Along with my sewn creatures, I created a limited edition ombré dyed scarf made especially for the show. It is a symbol of black and white, which becomes one; grey.

My husband and I are also working on a short film that will be shown at the exhibition which is set to a soundtrack composed by Loren Humphrey. The entire show centers around a love story between Summer and Winter, and even though they live on opposite sides of the world, they fall in love, and continue their seasonal dance of love for eternity.
