Kamea Hadar and Tatiana Suarez’s Miami Mural

kamea_tati_mural16

Our friends, artists Kamea Hadar and Tatiana (Tati) Suarez, just finished a beautiful mural on a drawbridge over the Miami River. This piece, created in collaboration with Olukai, marks the launch of Dredge Arts, a public arts initiative bringing revitalization to the historic Miami river. Tati was one of the first local Miami artists to be featured in the Goldman family’s famed Wynwood Walls this year, and felt it was important for her to also give love to other parts of Miami.

The figures are wearing a traditional Haku lei with flowers from both Hawaii and Miami. The lotus flower in the middle is symbolic of the Brazilian legend of Vitoria Regia and is dedicated to Tati’s cousin who recently drowned.

“The legend is about a girl who wanted to touch the moon. She reached for the moon’s reflection in the water, fell in and never emerged. The moon felt pity for the girl, turning her into the flower that blooms beautifully during the moonlight. The Lotus is dedicated to my cousin. She herself was an artist and a beautiful human being who embodied all the same principles of Aloha.”

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.
