Art jeweler Edgar Mosa set the tone with an oversized shoe lace and pearls, and went on to explore time and space through chain making. It is a clock, a hand made and performative process _ ultimately invading the space and the different contributors’ works.

Artist Samuel Farrier conceived an abstract sculpture, ever-evolving in time and space and made of materials and objects he collected over the past few weeks. He had these materials delivered from different locations over the length of 36 hours. Farrier blends a strong interest in object and material with an exploration of global misappropriation and distate.  


Fashion Designer Peter Do regards textile development as one of the few outlets for genuine innovation and performed live painting for the first time on plastic textiles _ covering models. He then constructed multiple garments in an extreme rapid fashion, which were modeled by contributors and members of the audience.
Sound Composer Jun Mizumachi performed live on top of a 36 hour piece he composed beforehand, playing sequences and layering artists interviews conducted by Hotel Particulier Director Frederique Thiollet. His compositions are a synthesis of sounds he extracts from his urban surroundings and travels, and breaks them down to a grain _ tiny dots of sounds and texture. 

Illustrator Richard Haines settled in a space of his own, sketching sensitive renderings of selected subjects from instagram and from the surrounding ambience at 36 Hours dis:play _ with his deeply sentimental treatment.
Perfumer Phil Roques, deconstructed a perfume on the length of 36 hours, in 10 scents around the notion of sweat. The scents were bandaged and documented on the contributors’ body at different time lapse blending with their own sweat.
Fashion Film Maker Derek Johnson, explored a 6 month recorded footage of a model guest staying at his home and extracted a pure essence in a 10 second film _ an hypnotic video where the sense of touch is coming to the surface of the screen.

Laura Perlongo, with her work “post it”, observed from an adjacent glass room, the artists and audience and commented live with a sort of automatic writing on post it. It transformed along the 36 hours, and became very interactive until the glass became fuller with notes. The audience felt more and more comfortable to dialogue with her as she disappeared before them. In turn, she felt more exposed under time pressure to feed the social media with the immediacy of the exchange.

Matin Zad _ Photographer
_ New York based photographer Matin Zad’s distinctive, idiosyncratic images have placed him amongst the most exciting new talents since graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 2013. Born in Toronto, his stark yet dreamlike work exists somewhere between fashion photography and fine art, gaining him attention in both fields. In 2013, Zad was the first place recipient of Bottega Veneta’s New Exposure Photography Competition, and collaborated with Duckie Brown on a poster campaign that appeared throughout New York Fashion Week. His work has appeared in renowned publications including Surface, CR Fashion Book and T Magazine. http://matinzad.com/

Grounded in method and material, his work explores temporal symbolism, his environment and pure creative impulse.
Mosa has taken part in art fairs including, Art Basel, Sofa Chicago, Object Rotterdam and has exhibited in galleries both in Europe and the US. His work is broadly featured in art/design publications as well as periodical magazines. Edgar Mosa works and lives in New York.

Phil Roques _ Nose Perfumer
_ graduated as a pharmacist before joining L'Oreal as a fragrance analyst. In 2000, he was hired by a Fragrance House. For Philippe, as a virtuoso pianist in classical and contemporary music, creating fragrances is playing with simple accords as well as interpreting them in a "theme and variations" way. He particularly enjoys oriental notes and loves working with woody notes. Born in France but with British roots, he has maintained strong cross-channel links. This enables him to have a deep understanding of both cultures and an appetite for traveling. Philippe enjoys urban environments and their energy. He worked in Creative Studios in Paris and New York. He is now based in São Paulo Brazil.

Laura Perlongo _ CopyWriter. Photographer, Social Media
_ is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores digital identity construction and its effect on experience, perception, storytelling and memory. Often using a journalistic approach to capture raw materials that she then decontextualizes, she creates an open-ended world of fantasy where everything actually kinda happened. A Detroit native, Laura has lived and worked in New York, Amsterdam and Los Angeles across multiple fields, most notably as an advertising writer and digital content director. 







Photographer Joseph McShea explored his medium: natural light. He tracked the sun through its cycles of twilight, day and night. His camera’s shudder ticked off hours like a thumb counting prayer beads. The exposures on film recorded subtle changes in light and color temperature, reminding us that we measure time by the movement of our planet and stars.

















Richard Haines _ Illustrator
_ his wildly popular blog, "What I Saw Today," documents the clothes and attitudes of New York's every day trendsetters and fashion icons of all ages. It is not uncommon to see Haines seated front row at fashion week's most desirable shows busily sketching images for magazines and blogs who hire him to record the nuances that cannot be captured on film. His sensitive renderings of his subjects, whether they are men on the street, friends or fashion models uncover a deeply sentimental treatment. It is his fascination with the people behind the styles that informs his every stroke, propelling his work beyond mere sketches into the world where art and fashion intersect.
Most recently, he had a solo exhibition of his work “A Room of One’s own”, which opened in the Fall of 2015 at Daniel Cooney Fine Art
Richard has also covered the men’s shows for NY Times T Magazine and has documented menswear trends for a weekly column for the Sunday Times London. Among his clients are Prada, J.Crew, Pennyblack, Il Palacio del Hierro, Calvin Klein, Coach, Georg Jensen, Bobbi Brown, Unionmade Goods, Barneys, Mr. Porter Grazia, The New York Times Style Magazine, Man of the World, GQ and GQ Italy. @Richard_Haines
