Matt Asato-Adams is a graphic designer and researcher interested in the relationship between the body, the self, and technology. He recently graduated from ArtCenter College of Design with a BFA in Graphic Design. His practice often investigates the intersection of culture, design, and technology; taking the form of publication design, spatial media, and performance. By embracing the accidental nuances with experimentation and process, he uses design as a tool for speculation and inquiry.
His work has been shown at ArtCenter College of Design's 5th floor gallery, Wind Tunnel Gallery, and Prenzlauer Studio / Kunst-Kollektiv.
Dutch born photographer Gijs van der Most is based in Los Angeles. Since he switched Amsterdam for Los Angeles about two years ago, he's been quickly becoming a favorite in the downtown Los Angeles photography scene. Gijs’ photography is direct, personal, and sometimes with a little wink. He's fascinated by people, their behavior and their environment.
His documentary projects include “Used Car Salesmen”, “Yard Sales”, “Sign Jugglers”, and his most recent project " I ♥ Runyon Canyon". Even though Van der Most works are displayed in series, he doesn't waste a single image. Gijs has co-created the blog “van der THIS! “, with his comedian/writer wife Michelle Buteau fusing the photography and comedy world into a miniseries that is eye catching as well as entertaining. His passion for great imagery hasn’t been unnoticed by the popular style, culture, and design blog www.kaufmann-mercantile.com. Where he currently is working as photo editor.
