THINGSText: Aya Takada

Mitchell and Steedman have been making a book about Sunny, who appears in ‘Windy’. He is a good friend of Windy and loves to play music. As there is a how-to-make kite in ‘Windy’, ‘Sunny’ comes with a soundtrack CD. Local bands like Piano and the Destroyer make music for the book. The reason why it is loved by both children and young people must be that Mitchell and Steedman’s interests are fully and directly expressed.

Besides those, Steedman publishes Made magazine and Inside Magazines (Gingko Press) with freelance critic / curator Patrik Andersson. Andersson, who has studied the relation between magazines and pop culture, features Vancouver’s emerging contemporary artists and established international designers in his articles. Steedman puts her efforts into cultural, elaborate magazine-making.

We give ourselves over to culture and follow seasonal or trendy things. As Mitchell and Steedman share the long-lived ‘pleasure’ with the reader through ‘Windy’, and as Steedman and Andersson make ‘Made magazines’ after analyzing pop culture, we aspire to seek hybrid ideas and designs, make sure of essentiality, and acquire originality in multicultural Vancouver.

Without forgetting to express our own nature, we’d like to enjoy life just like Windy…
