The idea of objectivity as it intersects within the journalism and writing worlds is one I have turned about in my mind for a long time now.

This past week I had the pleasure of interviewing a senior in the Craft and Materials Studies department, Sophie Copeland. Sophie's elegant and edgy ceramic pieces caught my eye, and I grew curious about the meaning behind her works.

Whether you’ve only caught a fleeting glimpse of their flyers, been to every show, or you're just hearing of them now, Wallpaper is the sound on the street that no one can seem to turn away from. The band started last year at the height of quarantine and has managed to amass a dedicated fanbase, put on unique live shows, and spread their music through the streets like wildfire.

For the first time in months the restrictions of the pandemic weren’t weighing down on my experience.

Vivienne Westwood was known as a style icon, specifically having heavily influenced punk fashion in the ‘70s. She was adored by the youths of the time, those who wanted to rebel against the prim and proper “squareness” associated with rule followers and government supporters and find styles that opposed the wide lapels and flared denim they so ferociously despised.
