Today we want to share with you the review of our Machinarium Collection published on EXITo, a desinghunting platform located in Madrid and directed by Nieves Noha and Javier Miguel. EXITo drives two initiatives: an online magazine that focuses in national and international product design, and a private area addressed to professional designers looking for inspiration, time-saving contents and trend analysis about product design, interior design and the creative industry in general.
The review about the Machinarium Collection has been written by one of the collaborators of EXITo, Ángela Pérez Brunete. She is a true connoiseur of the art jewelry world and, in addition, the alma mater of APB Contemporary Jewelry.
Naturally we would like to thank Ángela and all the EXITo team for this kind gesture. Do not miss this review about Decimononic and the Machinarium fine jewelry collection! (Spanish language).

We discovered this artist some time ago, thanks to the always enlightening newsletter of Jordan Reyne. Shayfer James is a theatrical songwriter that allows the listener to enjoy an unfathomable world, full of darkly lyrical and evocative stories. A very personal artistic proposal shaped by poetry, piano, delicate arrangements and outstanding performing skills.
He has toured the eastern half of the USA and has performed with his trio at festivals and events like CMJ NYC, Art Basel, Miami, Foburg Fest, New Orleans, and Hope & Glory, Hong Kong. His influences? Artists such as Billie Holiday, Stephen Sondheim, Sam Cooke, Stravinsky, Nat King Cole, Radiohead, Cole Porter, Fiona Apple, Nina Simone…
She has given birth to witches with a grunge soul, to Victorian heroines from a cloak-and-dagger novel, with unisex boots on their feet. Models in which black is the predominant colour, in which a wealth of elements superimpose, form knots, intertwine, generating a constant movement of the lines. Low necks or austere cuts. Fur coats or bikers’ leather jackets, trench coats or pullovers with architectonic necks…Ann’s aim is to tell a story through the silhouette. Recurring elements of her fashion are poetry, fragility, strength, androgyny, visceral black, the rock and roll incarnated by her beloved friend Patti Smith.

This is the questionnaire that the Spanish writer Josué Ramos sent us in order to publish the corresponding interview within the scope of Steampunk Hands around the World 2014.
The interview was originally published at MundoSteampunk.Net on 21st February, including the answers of creators like Sally-Ann Livingston and Malcolm Sinclair. Josué did a great work with an outstanding series of blog posts regarding Steampunk Hands around the World, and having the opportunity to collaborate with him was a priviledge. Do not miss the results!
