No Finish Line is Nike’s design vision for the next 50 years. Through exploratory, multilevel conversations encompassing both design and critical inputs to it – like sport research, technology and manufacturing – this research project celebrates 50 years of game-changing design and innovation in the service of athletes and sport. With a foreword by Nike’s Chief Design Officer and specu- lative fictions by Geoff Manaugh, the book features essays by Sam Grawe (author, Nike: Better is Temporary) describing five major shifts design may undergo in the coming decades as it evolves from product to platform, performance to promise, elite to everyone, sustainable to symbiotic, and static to sensorial.

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

    In Windows, Pound’s first photobook with Perimeter Editions, we find a cross-section of images lifted from a single category in Pound’s vast collection of 70,000 photographs. Each of the ‘found’ photographs in this new book features a window seen from the outside. We are allowed to look through them, from the privacy of our own homes. We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)
