when the images arrived of this beautiful boy in lipstick we applied a typographic treatment to them, and then had them printed very large on waterproof paper. we then bought a huge plastic tub, took it back to the studio and filled it with water. then, with the assistance of photographer and long-time collaborator jeff brown, we shot photographs of the photographs, literally underwater, whilst splashing around with our hands in order to distort the image and the text. the result is perhaps the most organic piece of design work we've ever produced.
