"For me the rope was learning about my boundaries of intimacy and communication. I was drawn to Kinbaku by its visual aesthetic and sexuality. But quickly once I had the pleasure of tying with June, I realized the sex element had much less to do with my enthusiasm for it. It was the connection and friendship that formed with June through the rope. She made it clear to me, that even though she was doing the tying, ultimately, that I was in control. Through that control I was able to explore my boundaries while feeling vulnerable with someone I trusted"

Paper Work NYC presents 2 new limited risograph prints of drawings by Los Angeles-based artist, Adam Tullie, entitled 'Smile Enhancement Clinical Trial III & IV'.

"As a officer it is deemed upon us to be lenient and have some compassion for the less fortunate in our society. But on the other hand, you have to drop the hammer, only because some people think kindness is a weakness in law enforcement. In conclusion, I do not condone excessive force, I.e. Shooting and killing unarmed civilians. We are their protectors" Barthlomew "Shaka" Johnson"

1. What differences do you see culturally in terms of love/sex/dating in Brazil vs the United States?
(Priscila): We both have different opinions because we come from different countries, Pablo is European and I am Brazilian. I think the Europeans are more caring and attentive compared to Brazilians. Relationship culture in Brazil deals with a lot of obsession and possession. Women in Brazil must always be submissive while also being the queen of everything. I found it interesting when he wanted a relationship with me despite the famous reputation that women in Brazil have all over the world hahaha.Read More

A delphian collection confounding the artist's other work, ( Out Of Body, Simple Future Past Perfect ) present a more shrouded view of intimacy, machinating the concepts surrounding the subject; Gasping For Air is a disclosing enumeration, a flashing importance while maintaining an impenetrable composure, blurring the line between reality and the concocted.
