Intrdocution and His Many Ventures: Cary Fagan
by Victoria Hernandez

“On this episode of Overly Conversated Overtime (OC:OT), we chop it up with all-around creative Cary Fagan. The Houston-based photographer shot the cover art for A$AP Rocky's "Testing" album (a project that is a hot topic on our show) as well as visuals for Solange's "When I Get Home." He challenges himself to stay inventive, including selling his work as puzzles (which have been very popular during quarantine), building chair sculptures through his Chairs Are People campaign and more.”








NUMEROVENTI IN RESIDENCE: OpenHouse Magazine x Numeroventi
by: Daniel Civetta

“each chair reborn, into a different form, shape and concept. How long were they going to last? No one really knew, however what I did know was that every time I happened to walk past one, time suddenly stood still.

Identity Magainze: “In/animate Objects”
by Aidan Imanova

“Stackable chairs are a common notion among designers and manufacturers, a feature created for flexibility and portability. Some of world’s most famous chairs feature a stackable design, from Eames’ Molded Plastic Stacking Side Chair and Kartell’s Master Chair to Alvar Aalto's iconic Stool 60 for Artek.

Chairs Are People: Petition.

"I share Fagan’s novel recognition that products we use daily, connect us with cultures far away. Everyday objects unite us. Consider the many variations of a coke, a writing pen, a coffee cup around the globe — different shapes, sizes, labels, branding, and personalities — same function, same product. This realization led me to create a cultural exploration blog titled Myriad United, years ago. So when I saw Fagan’s petition, I immediately was drawn to his activism. My legal training made me consider how we could implement the emoji change." - Garret Auzenne
