Amy Balkin’s A People’s Archive of Sinking and Melting, which was recently part of Ballroom’s group show Quiet Earth, is currently on view at the Prelinger Library in San Francisco. the work displays Balkin’s collection of “artifacts documenting the impact of climate change on society worldwide.”

These “artifacts” range from discarded ephemera to souvenirs and include everything from a used candy wrapper to a magnet from Antarctica.

Fortunately, the exhibition is also thoroughly documented on the project’s tumblr, so even if you’re stuck in a polar vortex and unable to get to the Bay Area,

Apiece Apart features Quiet Earth

Thank you to APIECE APART for featuring Quiet Earth in their recent Newsletter. For those of you who don’t know, APIECE APART is a line of beautifully well-tailored, “elevated basics” which were originally inspired by a trip to West Texas. The designers, Laura Cramer and Starr Hout, were so taken with the “austere and beautiful” landscape that they wanted to create clothing using those same ideals.

Their most recent collection “creates a space where Scandinavia and Japan meet” and even though it strays geographically from the Texas desert, the clothes remain as beautiful as ever.
