We hear it all the time: sex sells. And it’s true. As the art critic John Berger has suggested, advertisements are effective when they sell a fantasy: buy this product, and you will be envied by all. Women in both art and advertising are often posed for the male gaze; in other words, even if there’s a man in an ad photo, the woman is shown facing the consumer, promising to be just as attainable as the product she sells.

  Knitters are a typically practical bunch, with problem solving perhaps their badge of honour. There is one problem however that seems to haunt every knitter I know. That of the stubbornly unfinished project.  This is precisely what UK based artists, Rachel Matthews and Celia Pym have been tackling over the last 4 years in a fascinating project that matches people's unfinished knitted items with a new pair of hands for completion.  These unfinished objects, or UFOs as they have become known, have been sent in from all...
Natalie Ribbons of Agent Ribbons (and friend of BUST!) formed 60s-style, indie pysch-pop band, Tele Novella, just in time for the South by Southwest music festival in March.

Her BUST Magazine Craftacular entry was professional and thoughtful far beyond her years, and we're excited to feature Em John as one of our vendors at this December's BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular & Food Fair! Read on for the sweet story behind Emma's jewelry...
Last night CBS re-aired a 60 Minutes segment from January, featuring an interview with badass British/Caymanian world-champion free diver, Tanya Streeter.    If you're like me, up until recently you had no idea what free diving was. In this potentially lethal sport, the diver goes hundreds of feet into the depths of the ocean with no oxygen tanks or equipment of any kind. Before going down, divers will  perform breathing exercises to expand their lungs to the size of watermelons. Streeter has held a whopping 10 world...
