Hang On to Yourself

We presented our new design Non Conformist past week to you. In our blog we let you take a glance of our designers motives. A design can be just pleasing or esthetic, commercial and popular. Created for instant succes….

Maybe money making is less interesting than using all your creative powers and really make an effort to add something fresh to this world. That could be a thought, an idea, an opinion driven by other motives than opportunism and money. Plain and honest statements, they seem rare these days.

One of my ultimate Heroe of non conformism was The Wide Eyed Boy From Free Cloud, David Bowie. When I was a insecure teenager he thaught me,  that being different was cool, ultra cool. He made artistic statements and was inimitable. Still, today, almost a year after he died, Ziggy’s Stardust was never more shining in his absents. Still he left a void. The world needs Little Wonders like he was.

We al seek for Saviour Machines, but as the lyrics of the song says, If you please them to much it will control and destroy you……It needs a counter word, an opposing word to sharpen his mind. It needs a Sense Of Doubt. 

Live is Quicksand as it is, Fashions comes and Fame goes. Living Under Pressure in order to find this Velvet Goldmine. 

Day in Day out, we trie so hard to be a part of something bigger but in fact we our selves could be larger than the sum of our coins and the size of our ego. We could be Heroes, just for one day. Doing it the Right way….and Don’t Look Back In Anger

Dear David, we salute you and thank you for all the inspiration!

Non Conformist (new)

A new design @ artwearness by the title ‘Non Conformist’.

Globalization brings lots of opportunities and brings people and cultures together. Although it often results in equalizing and smoothing all the rough edges of basically everything. Regardless shape, colour, or scent, it ends up a mashed potato with insignificant color, shape and scent. I like to call it the McDonnalysation or Faceboocation of the world. You can travel to the most extreme outskirts of the world and meet different cultures and at the same time drink coke and talk about the same subjects and dance @ the same tunes. As I said theres something really democratic en equal about it, but is is also extremely boring when everyone and everything is alike. I Am born in the seven-tees and grew up in the eighties. To become distinctive and unique was my greatest search. I choke at the idea that I should act conform a (commercial) defined pear group. Maybe, it was just me. maybe I could not fit in anyway. But now I’ am so glad that I became my own. With my own ideals, dreams and oddness. I embrace it. And so should everyone embrace the oddity in her or him self and life it out! Don’t be a number or a sheep. Be unexpected.
