The Wave: Light Painting


On a warm afternoon in July, our lovely/talented friend Finn (aka Fionnuala Bradley) was nice enough to stop by and give us a lesson on cameras. She taught us about Light Painting and how to create our own cool photos with just an SLR camera, flashlights, and some glowsticks! All we had to do was take our light sources and draw or write whatever we wanted – backwards. All of us each took turns with Finn using a dark bathroom and created some really cool images in a pretty short amount of time. Take a look!

The Wave: Gettin’ Collage-y With It


Last week, the Sunset Media Wave team got cutty and creative for Campbell’s student lead activity –– making collages out of magazine clippings and images plucked from the internet that represented their personal styles. In part two of the task, members were asked to get introspective and answer the following questions in five words or less:

1. My style is…

2. Fashion means to me…

Through these D-I-Y works of art, the Wavers were able to highlight their unique, quirky, fierce and fabulous fashion senses while also expressing the importance of clothing in their lives. Continue reading

Touch Screen to Begin: Soul Guardians – Age of Midgard


Soul Guardians: Age of Midgard is a free-to-play side-scrolling fighting game by ZQGame Inc. I usually don’t play these types of games because of the amount of battery life they require, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone and try something different this time around. For the short time I’ve played this game, it’s been pretty fun. You can play with other people on your server, which can make for an interesting and unique experience with friends. If anything, this is a fantastic game for heating your phone up on a cold day. Continue reading

The Neverending Playlist That Is My Life: Use Somebody + HELLO

Hi! It’s Elizabeth from TNPTIML. I decided that I never really introduced myself correctly, so I made a video to say ”hey” and explain why music means so much to me. I also attached a video of me singing ‘Use Somebody’ by Kings Of Leon. The video was on my computer so I said “Hey, why not?”.  Enjoy!

Fashion Soup for the Sartorial Soul: Rick Owens & Michèle Lamy


While the music business was blessed with Beyonce and Jay-Z, the fashion industry was given an equally as mighty power-couple, in the form of designer Rick Owens and eccentric entrepreneur Michele Lamy. The black-clad husband and wife team are unconventional, to say the least, but together they’ve used their incomparable sartorial talents to turn Owen’s clothing label into a game-changing creative empire within the high fashion world. Though the two met in LA, their relationship –– where the lines between business and love are admittedly, closely intertwined –– blossomed in their current home of Paris. Since then, Owen and Lamy have acted as each other’s muses, producing works of art in place of offspring.  Continue reading
