|Began his career as a commercial artist in 1979,
writing and illustrating his own publications. One magazine, BRUTE!, became
a cult hit and spawned a paperback, two TV series and a slew of ad campaigns.
In 1986 he began working for German industrial band KMFDM, encompassing
over three dozen CD sleeve designs and two animated pop promos. BRUTE! is
best known in the US today. In 1996, he moved to Seattle where he wrote
and art directed ZPC, No Flesh Shall Be Spared, a first-person shoot-em-up
computer game. Aidan continues to work as a commercial artist, designing
web sites, book and CD sleeves. Most recent exhibitions were in Detroit,
San Francisco and Houston. Presently working on a series of artistic tributes

|My work explores the paradoxes and intersections of my dual French and Algerian identity. I use video, photography, writing, installations and 3D objects to examine the themes of genre, family, representation, language and memory. I question and reinterpret the dichotomy between Western and Islamic Arab images, the icons and rituals within the family stories, particularly the mother-daughter relationship. Silent Sight explores issues of representation, veiling and mother - daughter relationship, touching also on wider cultural issues - through its cinematic quality, a strong reference to the French cinema vérité is explored and the way women in these films were portrayed. I have exhibited internationally, including this years Venice Biennale and Valencia's first Biennial.|
|For her disciples, fashion renegade Pam
Hogg is an icon, the last survivor of the 80s club-class designers
who partied at Blitz with Boy George and David Bowie. Shes been there,
done that and made the T-shirt for bad girls Anita Pallenberg, Siouxsie
Sioux and Blondie. While never losing her passion for producing her brand
line of are-you-looking-at-me clothes, shes written a screenplay which
shes recently been filming, in and around her Kings Cross apartment
with Daryl Hannah, Keith Allen and 70s heart throb David Soul.

|Lives and works in New York City.
|Born in a hospital. Operates on instinct, true
beliefs, hearts, feelings and reality. Founder member of the underground
vegetable movement, plotted in the 20th century which digs vegetables and
the pick of the fruits. Aims: to push fruit and vegetables into the 21st
century. Method: rake and hoe. These staple foods are intrinsic to the human
race, regardless of any biological differences. See what grows out of this
earth and cultivate it for progress. The underground vegetables believe
in a simple way of living, loving and giving. I cant face people who
pretend to be interested in things that they couldnt care less for.
This is underground vegetable art yall. Eat Ital Stew n breathe.
