Senna

 

We were never one for motor car racing. So the name Ayrton Senna registered little & the desire to watch this doco about the Brazilian Formula 1 racing driver, widely regarded as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all times, was fairly minimal.

There is something though about getting a glimpse into the life of a prominent figure in our generation no matter what their field. & the fact that he was a bit of a dish didn’t hurt either.

Stitching together never before seen footage, this doco takes us on a journey through Senna’s career, following his struggle on track with his french nemesis Alain Prost & off the track with the heavily political sport, & through his 3 F1 world championship wins. Humble yet with fiery determination, his spirit, passion & love for racing and his spiritual relationship with the sport not only brings tears to the eyes but inspires & captures the heart.

Although the doco itself, with its little narration, assumed we knew more about both Senna & F1 than we do, it was still great because, well, we can fill in the gaps with Wikipedia can’t we! Senna, the doco, three and a half stars. Senna, the star himself, a big incredible five.

beautiful, no?

‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales, involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’ Zander Olsen

wrap up!

& we are back after a crazy time at the sydney finders keepers ss ’11!

thank you so much for those who took the time out in the wonder filled markets to visit us!

for those who didn’t make it, we thought we would share some pics of our stall which we were so happy with- thanks to the incredible work of our very clever friends!! (sorry the pics aren’t the best, we had to steal quiet moments so were a little rushed!)
as we really wanted to reflect the custom-made concept of our online store, we had a section of our stall where you could choose a me & oli print, match it to one of the shapes on the sample rack & we measured you up & started the process of custom making the garment! we felt like this went most smoothly & were really blown away to find so many embracing the concept & really taking part in our interactive stall!

of course, we didn’t forget we were in a market environment so had got fun things made up just for the occasion- like illustrated & digitally printed scarves, tees, tanks, totes & chrissy cards.

for lovers out there who didn’t make it to the market, rest assured we have put some of these ‘off the rack’ products aside for you. so stay tuned as we start posting up lots of these goodies this week… starting from today (just in time for your chrissy shopping!)
