Our shows mash-up a particular type of work in order to produce little scenes.  As a result, we generate design ephemera which signify these scenes and ultimately becomes salable in limited edition.


In all cases, we look to formats which are widely accessible, and treat our store as an opportunity to participate through kits, gear, merch, etc.

BIG MODELS

is new venture in LA which considers design ephemera to be a progressive medium


SCENE BUILDING

We believe cities are a mash-up of scenes.  We are really interested in the design ephemera which signifies sub-cultural scenes and ultimately comes to represent moments in cities ( and cities themselves ).  This type of stuff exists somewhere between the disposable and fine art, and is important or valuable to those who participate somehow.  Within this participation is a level of art engagement we appreciate.

Our second focus is on the work of Maria Simon, from whom we've commissioned x9 steel map+scape+gameboards which reconcile with wanderlust, disillusionment, and representations of nature.  We will showcase this little world and prototype some merch which offers various entry points (into her world).  This showcase will open on Saturday December 10th.


From the artist:

"Get on your feet and step outside to catch wild xxxxx. Explore cities and towns where you live- and even around the globe- to capture as many xxxxx as you can. As you walk through the real world, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know when you’re near a xxxxx.


At a certain point in the game, you'll be asked to join a team. Pick the same team as your friends to work together, or join different teams and play as rivals! 


For safety’s sake, never play xxxxxx go while on your bike, driving a car, riding a hoverboard or anything else where you should be paying attention and of course never wander away from your parents or your group to catch a xxxxxx.


Remember that team members may not be your real-life friends, so be careful with what you tell them about yourself."
