fish + braids = fishwithbraids

fish + braids = fishwithbraids
the experience of art thrives at the top of the bell curve in a place of speculation (and not consensus), hypotheses (and not conclusions) and belief (not knowledge).
To stay at the top of the bell curve, as Buergel and Noack might say,
the best art must make us not understand,
which corresponds to a state of sustained curiosity that provokes us to change something about ourselves in an effort to understand.

got armor ?

is Uta Brauser's response to the continued gun violence in the United States.
"As long we have gun laws that make weapon ownership this easy, we,
the unarmed Civilians, who insist on civilized interaction and
unarmed conflict solution, need to shield ourselves.
Armor up! "
" Human Civilization is approaching a stage of intelligence and technology where the use of guns should slowly become obsolete. Come on America.."
quotes of Uta Brauser

Using fashion as a wearable art expression, Uta Brauser is presenting on the runway stage
with the Williamsburg Fashion Weekend a line of bullet proof gear combined with a playful take on armor to instigate the continued dialog and activism against gun rights.

50 N 3rd Street, Williamsburg Brooklyn Waterfront  at 9pm

here some press attention

NY Times.thelocal.eastvillage:
Uta Brauser
Showing Friday at 9 p.m.
More activist than fashion designer, Ms. Brauser looks to clothing design as a way to push forward political dialogue. Her collection for the show includes paintball masks and visors to invoke a sense of “shielding” as a response to the repeated occurrence of gun violence in schools.
Favorite thing about WFW: “Williamsburg Fashion Week still maintains that core of genuine, non-gentrified artistic expression that you used to find in the East Village and Lower East Side. It all moved to Williamsburg. Williamsburg now contains the urban core of designers that makes New York such an extremely creative capital.”
