I think Joshua tree really attracts me because it's quiet. The desert, the empty space, the drama.

When we first began Dimepiece, social network options were limited to Myspace and AOL Instant Messenger, mobile online access was a luxury, and phones were used strictly for calls and texts.  Now, 10 years later, social media options are endless, phones are literally tiny computers with unlimited access to data, and we are constantly exposed to a never-ending stream of notifications and content.  Sometimes this constant flow of information and accessibility can be overwhelming, and in order to maintain sanity and regain focus, we must momentarily disconnect from all things digital.

Our samples from this season being used with a method called screen printing. This is a printing technique with a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil.

What do they mean?

The Joshua tree is an important part of the desert ecological system and the desert landscape. The Joshua tree reminds us that if we persevere we will not only survive, but we will grow in unique ways.

The Integratron in Joshua Tree is a unique structure designed by Ufologist and Contactee George Van Tassel. Tassel claimed the Integratron was capable of rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel.

One of our ss-17 shoot locations was at Robert Warner's leather ranch in Joshua tree. He hand makes leather goods & clothes for rock & roll legends. A true gem to the desert city.
