The Sinatra House Los Angeles photograph ($300) above was shot on Polarid T-55 (which it no longer available), a positive/negative film that is super sensitive to heat and scratched.

Dwell on Design LA 09
In 2008 Dwell created the Square Meal section as a place in which to explore the intersection of food and design. Beginning with the feats of gastroengineering found at Alinea restaurant in Chicago and most recently checking out urban beekeeping on the rooftops of Toronto’s restaurant, Square Meal has become a regular feature in the pages of Dwell.
At this year’s Dwell on Design in Los Angeles, Dwell is bringing Square Meal to life with a series of special food-related events and programming.

Drummers Garret Hammond (Prick, Kill Hannah), and Andrew Kubiszewski (Prick, Stabbing Westward) also contributed to the new album.
“I really enjoyed working with Chris on this new project of his. It’s always an amazing experience when you get to collaborate with artists who share the same frames of reference and tastes as you. It establishes a short hand in which you can communicate easily and quickly in.” – Charlie Grosso
Los Angeles, California, – April 10, 2006 – Charlie Grosso has been selected to be as a finalist for LA County Transit Authority’s 2006 Metro Art Neighborhood Posters.
She was one of the 9 finalists out of hundreds of local artists. Grosso was assigned the East Village of Long Beach and tasked with the challenge of creating a piece of art that would represent the spirit of the East Village Community.
“I went down to East Village, Long Beach and spent sometime there on several different occasions to get a grasp of the place. What strike me the most on all the visits is the there is no one unifying voice for this community.
The East Village is unique because it is so diverse, both in its residents and in its architectures. I wanted to create a poster that would exemplify that.”
