Knock knock. It’s Lunar Vacation’s dream pop. INTERVIEW TIME!
We promised you some technicolor treats and promises are things we like to keep.
This winter was hard. Things slowed down. Darby Mae went into hibernation mode and our skin (and spirits) went too many days without sunshine. Luckily, those days have faded into oblivion and Slow Culture is back with new rays in our eyes. Everyone meet Cristóbal Rey, a Chilean-born, Berlin-based world traveler, multi-instrumentalist, analog-obsessed photographer, and dear friend of Miss DM.
And if we made one promise, we’ll make another: the time you spend reading this will be so much more fun and inspiriting than the time you’ll spend scrolling through your morning news or lunch time newsfeed of other people’s [otherwise mundane] lives. Enjoy 🙂

“The Priestess of Polka Dots”, a.k.a. Yayoï Kusama, is an avant-garde artist and writer of Japanese descent. After moving to New York in 1957, (with an extra push from Georgia O’Keefe), her artwork went from 2D to… infinity. While painting still remains one of Kusama’s daily artistic mediums, her forte lies in installation and sculpture. Melding aspects of her psychological past and present, with attributes of feminine, minimal, surreal, and abstract expressionist art, it is anirrefutable understatement to call Yayoï Kusama a pioneer of conceptual artistic expression – but I’ll let you decide. Today, we’re going to explore Yayoï Kusama’s obsessions with repetition and infinity – and why these obsessions have become mine, too.
