How does one define
the in-betweens of motion?
x MADGE REYES
Every journey starts with a why. For us, it’s to bring collaboration to the fore.
When collaboration is the core focus, the creative freedom is limitless. Through this merging of minds, we highlight what is most important to us; unity, diversity and cultivating a space to celebrate both the dichotomies and similarities present in the art of collaboration.
For the past year, we began our journey in the form of wearable art collections designed in collaboration with independent designers Ken Samudio and Seph Bagasáo. And now? The birthing of Foreword; its meaning an apt title for the stories behind our partnerships. ‘An introduction, typically by a person other than the author’. At Foreword we put collaboration, defined by the voices of others, first.
Our first editorial collaboration comes in the form of Photographer x Dancer. Colin Dancel x Madge Reyes. Tasked to create a story inspired by the haptic responses inspired by our Bagasáo collection and the configurable arborist rope, we bring you Motion.
Movement, when shot in great detail, unfolds a narrative that’s grounded on the core principles of the action, but also makes a case for a completely new experience altogether. How does one define the in-betweens of motion? Making sense of the speed, the stillness, the focus, and the lack thereof. The irony of feeling more by seeing less, and vice versa.
