Bjӧrk - Mutual Core - OFFICIAL - Art + Music - MOCAtv
 
05:28
In "Mutual Core," recorded by Björk for her seventh album Biophilia, the earth's geology is a metaphor for human relationships. Eruptions and earthquakes, the building of continents, the formation of mountain ranges and oceanic trenches: all are powerful signs of the earth's structure and mechanics. Represented musically by the violent interruption of block rocking beats, video director Andrew Thomas Huang here depicts the push and pull of tectonic plates with anthropomorphized rocks, lava and sand encircling Björk in dance, their psychedelic innards resembling the frayed strands of a Fritz Haeg rug.

RETNA - Art in the Streets - MOCAtv Ep. 6
 
08:00
Graffiti Writer RETNA talks about his life, his love, and his motivation to create art. RETNA is a valiant and innovative unifier of culture. Through his uniquely curated alphabet of old english, hebrew, arab, asian and other calligraphy Retna has created his own universal text by which to translate his emotions, dreams, and poetry. He is also a kind and generous artist whose utmost goal is to share his work and put a smile on the face of those who enjoy and understand his dense rhythmic structures. As gallery owner Michael Kohn notes Retna is "Frans Kline meets Keith Haring," sophisticated yet deeply rooted in the traditions of the street art crews Retna either ran or became member to from the late 1980's til today. He has been featured in numerous museum exhibitions including MOCA's own Art in The Streets, which in 2011 was well attended and lauded as a great testament to how far Graffiti and Street Art have come in the last 40 years.

Kingdom - Bank Head (feat. Kelela)
 
04:41
The lead single from Los Angeles producer Kingdom's fifth EP, Vertical XL, "Bank Head" is tense, restrained R&B in the tradition of Aaliyah, Brandy and Cassie, a new look for a producer who comes from the vortices of clubland. Making her Fade to Mind debut, Kelela sings of a physical desire and an attendant longing, which video director Jude MC depicts as nothing less than elemental, eternal like the sun and the stars, deep like a murky cave. Like so much of his and Kingdom's work, the feeling is beyond human.

The Art of Punk - Black Flag - Art + Music - MOCAtv
 
22:22
On the first episode of "The Art of Punk" we dissect the art of the legendary Black Flag. From the iconic four bars symbols, to the many coveted and collected gig flyers, singles, and band t-shirts, all depicting the distinctive Indian ink drawn image and text by artist Raymond Pettibon. We start off in Los Angeles talking to two founding members singer Keith Morris, and bass player Chuck Dukowski, about what the scene was like in 1976 - setting the stage for the band's formation, as well as the bands name, and the creation of the iconic four bars symbol. Raymond Pettibon talks with us from his New York art studio. Back in LA we meet with Flea, from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, about how the art, the music, and that early LA scene impacted his own life and career. To wrap it all up we sit and talk at length, with Henry Rollins, at MOCA Grand Ave in Los Angeles, about all of the above and more. Created, directed, and Executive Produced by writer/author of 'Fucked Up + Photocopied', Bryan Ray Turcotte (Kill Your Idols), and Bo Bushnell (The Western Empire), The Art Of Punk traces the roots of the punk movement and the artists behind the iconic logos of punk bands such as: Black Flag (Raymond Pettibon), The Dead Kennedys (Winston Smith), and Crass (Dave King). In addition to profiling the artists, the series includes intimate interviews with former band members, notable artists, and celebrities who have been heavily influenced by the art of punk rock including Jello Biafra, Tim Biskup, Scott Campbell, Chuck Dukowski, Flea, Steve Olson, Penny Rimbaud, Henry Rollins, Owen Thornton, and Gee Vaucher. The filmmakers Bryan Ray Turcotte and Bo Bushnell take a unique approach to exploring the rich histories of these three seminal punk legends by focusing on the influential imagery and seeking out stories that have not been told yet through the artwork, which is integral to the importance and influence of each band. On June 11, 2013 The Art Of Punk debuts on MOCAtv with an episode on Raymond Pettibon and the artwork of Black Flag. The stories behind the art of the Dead Kennedys will debut on June 18, and June 25 will see the release of the Crass episode, all of which will be available at: www.youtube.com/MOCAtv Created By: BRYAN RAY TURCOTTE https://twitter.com/bryanraymond www.KillYourIdols.com BO BUSHNELL https://twitter.com/BoBushnell Instagram.com/BoBushnell http://bobushnell.com DIRECTED BY: BRYAN RAY TURCOTTE BO BUSHNELL EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: EMMA REEVES JOHN TOBA EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: BRYAN RAY TURCOTTE BO BUSHNELL STARRING: RAYMOND PETTIBON KEITH MORRIS CHUCK DUKOWSKI HENRY ROLLINS FLEA CAMERA: JOSH WEBBER BO BUSHNELL JASON BAKER EDITED BY: TIM BROOKS BEAST EDITORIAL ASSISTANT EDITOR: PAUL JAROLIMEKPRONER BEAST EDITORIAL LOCATION SOUND: NOAH ALEXANDER CHARLES EASTMOND MOTION GRAPHIC DESIGN: BRENT STANGEL MUSIC SUPERVISION: BETA PETROL MUSIC BY: RAW NERVE THEME MUSIC: SON THE FATHER by FUCKED UP COURTESY BEGGARS GROUP ADDITIONAL MUSIC BY: C.R.A.S.H.

Building Detroit - Revok, Nekst, Pose - Art in the Streets - MOCAtv
 
06:55
Like New York in the '70s, modern day Detroit is a street art paradise. Bombed out and underpoliced, the city itself is grist for graffiti artists and writers who flock from other cities and beyond. In this short film, Los Angeles artist REVOK introduces us to the newest creative community in the Motor City, touring the fantastic assemblages made from abandoned houses, and paying homage to the predecessors on the walls of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Where others see blight, these artists see a canvas. -- NEKST tribute painted by Revok, Pose, Omens, Vizie, Screw, Dont.

Nan Goldin - The Ballad of Sexual Dependency - MOCA U - MOCAtv
 
10:31
Mixing an in-depth interview with slides of her career-defining work, this video presents the strategies and stakes of Nan Goldin's The Ballad of Sexual Dependency: "I didn't care about good photography, I cared about complete honesty," Goldin says. Certainly, from its elastic life as slideshow series exhibited across the globe, to its structured legacy as a photo book and collection of prints, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency underscores the camera's documentary function, offering not just enthralling compositions but proof of experience. Creating intimacy with rather than distance from her subjects, Goldin sought to "to show exactly what it was," whether that it was her friends, housemates, lovers, or the plague of AIDS that hit her community. Discussing Larry Clark's influence on her "saturated vision," the dueling desires for intimacy and autonomy that haunt human relationships, Goldin re-orients the dominant perspective on this vital work, setting the record crooked: "We were never marginalized. We were the world." Directed by Emma Reeves Shot by Eric Teti Sound by Max Cooke Edited by Tom Salvaggio Make-up by Maud Laceppe at Streeters Agency Thanks to Neal Franc

Learn To Say F**k You / Sol LeWitt - Tim Armstrong (Rancid)  - Art + Music - MOCAtv
 
02:08
In 1965, Sol LeWitt wrote fellow sculptor Eva Hesse a four-page letter of encouragement, urging her to stop doubting herself and to simply continue making her work. Despite the fact that some would consider their friendship unlikely, the two sculptors were close friends and wrote to each other frequently about their ideas, work, and personal lives from 1960 until Hesse's death ten years later. Often quoted, LeWitt's letter has become a source of inspiration and a vote of confidence for many artists the world over. Producer Aaron Rose (Beautiful Losers, Become a Microscope) worked with punk rock band Rancid to remake LeWitt's words into a bold and boisterous song. With wild and wavy LeWitt-inspired animation, this video energetically embodies the message of its writer. Read the original letter in full: http://blog.art21.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/sol-eva-letter.pdf In keeping with our tradition of unlikely bedfellows this is our latest film in the Lyric Video series. This project started with Tim Armstrong taking the text, and reconfiguring it into a formal song structure with verses, bridges and a chorus. He then put together a group of his talented musician friends and let it rip in the studio. Once the song was done, Filmmaker Aaron Rose researched specific works of LeWitt's that would animate well and passed them off to animator/director Thomas McMahan to set them in motion. The end result is a lyric video like none other. A true testament to the brilliance of Sol LeWitt, sent through a 21st Century filter to create something that resonates as strongly today as the original works did when they were created.

The Art Of Punk - Dead Kennedys - The Art of Winston Smith - Art + Music - MOCAtv
 
14:02
On this episode of The Art of Punk we hit head on with the art behind the legendary Dead Kennedy's. From the chaotic, surreal, madness, of collage mixed with political folly that blazed their LP's and gig flyers; to the razor edge ultra simplistic four simple line DK symbol. In San Francisco we corner founding Dead Kennedy's member Jello Biafra, and discuss his own warped inspiration for the many sleeves and posters created in the early days of the band. Back in Los Angeles we talk with pop surrealist artist Tim Biskup about how the DK's affected and twisted his own young mind, and Steve Olson graces us with a few words of wisdom. Finally we meet up with master collage artist, and designer of the DK's symbol, Winston Smith in his North Beach art studio, and talk about how he was drawn into the early Bay Area punk scene - and his long and creative artist relationship with the Dead Kennedy's and Jello Biafra. Created, directed, and Executive Produced by writer/author of 'Fucked Up + Photocopied', Bryan Ray Turcotte (Kill Your Idols), and Bo Bushnell (The Western Empire), The Art Of Punk traces the roots of the punk movement and the artists behind the iconic logos of punk bands such as: Black Flag (Raymond Pettibon), The Dead Kennedys (Winston Smith), and Crass (Dave King).

Le1f - Hush Bb
 
03:50
Le1f's mesmerizing, glitchy beats and his provocative, richly referential lyrics are infiltrating hip hop with avant-garde and colluding avant with pop. His catchy collage of high and low culture, welcome at the Whitney and Irving Plaza, P.S. 1 and Los Globos, makes a perfect match for director Alex Da Corte, who consumes, metabolizes, and secretes mass culture into anally precise painting and sculpture. For the brooding, glamorous "Hush Bb," Le1f and a female model take turns writhing on velvet sheets and smoking out of Da Corte's signature plastic tubing, the video slowed like Le1f's syrupy vocals. Here, Le1f (and culture itself) is the MC Escher triangle from his breakout video "Wut": a snake eating its own tail. Directed by Alex Da Corte [www.alexdacorte.com] Asst.

Cameron - MOCA U - MOCAtv
 
06:01
"There was a time when art was an assault on what art was, and practices were motivated by an elated passion for regions of the mind that amaze the vision more than the eyes. Cameron [b. Marjorie Cameron, Belle Plaine, Iowa, 1922; d. Los Angeles, 1995] was of a time of heedless belief in the power of art to invent and celebrate new ways of representation and being. Her work oscillates between the psychedelic and surreal and defies a conventional understanding of modernity as a logical notion of progress in art. She reminds us of how little we perceive of our existence and how much our mind, if fully explored, awakens an alternative knowledge. Her life and her art parallel with some of the greatest creative minds of our time including Kenneth Anger, Wallace Berman, William Blake, Bruce Conner, George Herms, Henri Michaux, and Unica Zurn. With intellectual chemistry, a different history of our time can be written. If not written, a history that can be hallucinated is the only strategy to overcome the gruesome cruelty of a culture that has neglected the values of humanity for way too long, a culture that might leave the negative trace of systematic erosion, destruction, and obliteration. From Cameron's work, a museum can learn courage—the courage of a woman who defied the conventions of her time and followed so many women who remained in the shadow of patriarchy but who have often taken more revolutionary risk than their seminal husbands, lovers, and friends." —Philippe Vergne, Director, MOCA.

Process: Kerry James Marshall
 
02:58
Kerry James Marshall: Mastry is his first major retrospective in the United States, and includes nearly 80 paintings, all of which contain images of Black subjects going about their daily business, presented with utter equality and humanity. A deeply accomplished artist, who makes ravishing paintings, Marshall’s strategy was three fold. First, as a young artist he decided to paint only black figures. He was unequivocal in his pursuit of black beauty. His figures are an unapologetic ebony black, and they occupy the paintings with a sense of authority and belonging. Second, Marshall worked to make a wide variety of images populated with black people. This led him to make exquisite portraits, lush landscape paintings, everyday domestic interiors, and paintings that depict historical events, all featuring black subjects as if their activities were completely and utterly normal. Third, Marshall concentrated on painterly mastery as a fundamental strategy. By mastering the art of representational and figurative painting, during a period when neither was in vogue, Marshall produced a body of work that bestows beauty and dignity where it had long been denied. In his studio in Chicago, Marshall discusses his career, his strategies to circumvent institutional inequality, and his mission to diversify the cultural representations that are prioritized and historicized by the museum and art history canon.

As his self-proclaimed "joke DJ" alter ego, Lussenhop applies his editing techniques to deejay culture, gleefully ricocheting through samples and snippets that parody the realms of house music and on-air talk radio. He gets in the mix for MOCAtv, curating clips of Estonian moped dancers, Sotho junk funk, and a rowdy public access party.

Niki De Saint Phalle / Soko / Aaron Rose - Loveletter - Art + Music - MOCAtv
 
02:45
The work of Niki De Saint Phalle comes alive in "Loveletter," a new single by pop singer Soko inspired by the late Franco-American artist. Just as Soko's romantic lament takes form in the words of Saint Phalle, so does artist, curator and filmmaker Aaron Rose animate the artist's drawings from her 1971 artist book "My Love, Where Shall We Make Love?," which expands and enlivens the motion implicit in Saint Phalle's accordion-folding book. The constellation of characters in "My Love," including voluptuous, feminine nanas, are flattened, art brut-style illustrations of sculptural figures that Saint Phalle exhibited in museums and public parks the world over. These figures helped Saint Phalle advance her career-long inquiry into the quirks and intricacies of devotion.

12:17
On the next installment of The Art of Punk, we tear into the art of Crass. From the assaulting black and white photo-realistic paintings of protest, anarchy, and social satire, to their legendary adopted brand and two headed snake and cross symbol. We head up to the Anarchist Book Fair in San Francisco to meet up with Gee Vaucher, and founding Crass member, writer, and activist, Penny Rimbaud. We discuss the art and the lifestyle stemming from the infamous Dial House, where they have lived, worked, and crated their own brand of anarchistic beauty, for more than 3 decades. We have a sit down with artist Scott Campbell, at his own New York tattoo shop, and talk about how the art of Crass, and one single t-shirt created a fork in his own road of life. Owen Thornton talks some shit. Finally we hang out with British graphic designer Dave King - the creator of the infamous snake and cross symbol, and discuss post war England, hippies, punk, graphic design, and more, that led him to the creation of the symbol made legend by Crass. Created, directed, and Executive Produced by writer/author of 'Fucked Up + Photocopied', Bryan Ray Turcotte (Kill Your Idols), and Bo Bushnell (The Western Empire), The Art Of Punk traces the roots of the punk movement and the artists behind the iconic logos of punk bands such as: Black Flag (Raymond Pettibon), The Dead Kennedys (Winston Smith), and Crass (Dave King). In addition to profiling the artists, the series includes intimate interviews with former band members, notable artists, and celebrities who have been heavily influenced by the art of punk rock including Jello Biafra, Tim Biskup, Scott Campbell, Chuck Dukowski, Flea, Steve Olson, Penny Rimbaud, Henry Rollins, Owen Thornton, and Gee Vaucher. The filmmakers Bryan Ray Turcotte and Bo Bushnell take a unique approach to exploring the rich histories of these three seminal punk legends by focusing on the influential imagery and seeking out stories that have not been told yet through the artwork, which is integral to the importance and influence of each band.

David Benjamin Sherry - The Artist's Studio - MOCAtv
 
08:31
David Benjamin Sherry journeys to Joshua Tree National Park, California, to breathe new life into the art historical tradition of landscape photography. Like Ansel Adams and Edward Weston before him, Sherry—a recent transplant to Southern California—hikes into the wilderness carrying a large-format camera, an analog device that captures the landscape in painstaking detail. Yet unlike the naturalists, Sherry sees the rock formations and dramatic vistas through a lens of humanity, perhaps as symbols of what scientists refer to as the anthropocene, or geological age of man. Printed in bright, sensational color, his photographs—part of a series titled Climate Vortex Sutra—are "magical and alchemical," a depiction of the natural world yet unseen.

‪Bight of the Twin - a film by Hazel Hill McCarthy III with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge - MOCAtv
 
04:15
Bight of the Twin is a feature documentary where friends and collaborators, director Hazel Hill McCarthy III and cultural engineer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, explore the relationship between Vodun and Western secular art and performance by trying to answer the question of “what is embodiment?” The filmmakers traveled to Ouidah, Benin looking for an up close, insider’s view of one of the world’s oldest religions through the radical exchange of beliefs and ideas with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Beginning as an investigation, the nature of the project changed when Genesis was serendipitously initiated into the ‘Twin Fetish’—a tradition within Vodun that honors twins and has some surprising parallels to Genesis’ own artistic practice. Through these ceremonies, Genesis reaffirmed an eternal bond with h/er late wife and Pandrogyne partner, Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, an activation of a complete state. In filming, the nature of the film changed from simply being a catalyst for audiences to gain a wider understanding and acceptance of Vodun, to being itself, Vodun—an object that has been activated by creation. Here, in this visual collage from the film, Genesis elaborates on this. Please help fund the completion of this film at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bight-of-the-twin/x/1831448 Directed by Hazel Hill McCarthy III Produced by Hazel Hill McCarthy III, Douglas J.

The dynamic L.A. duo of Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda return with their second EP for Fade to Mind, collection of seven bio-mechanically engineered heavy-hitting club experiments. Enter the paranoid universe of Skycell; a game you don't know you're playing, a hostile environment where your mind takes a vacation, but your body is in a cage. The songs of Skycell are built from air bursts, glimmering chimes, sunken bass, metallic scrapes, and industrial crashes. As the tension looms you begin to realize you are in an elevated jail cell with no bars, where your only escape is to free fall to your demise. Skycell's clanging, grime-inflected lead single "Mecha" is visualized by video director Jude MC who says, "By sampling footage from contemporary sci-fi and action films I am able to, through a process of divination, analyze the culture surrounding technological advancement and the mechanization of earth. Through time, we will see if life imitates art along the path of what is prophesied in these films, in the meantime they are certainly entertaining to watch." out now on Fade To Mind: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/skycell/id725318474 Credits: Video by Jude MC Starring Moon Ratus (Alicia Vasquez) Special thanks to: David Elder, Fldizayn, Tim Jones & Mario Medina Other links: http://judemc.info http://shop.fadetomind.net/product/nguzunguzu-skycell-12-pre-order Sources are sampled for demonstrational use only.

On the border of the arts district and on a wall facing Skid Row, Los Angeles graffiti artist Risk paints "Ye Sun," an energetic, optimistic mural that fills the side of the Hotel Las Americas with rays and inscriptions which symbolize the hopes and dreams of the residents of Skid Row. As an innovator of writing on "heavens," or freeway overpasses, Risk has been in dialogue with the public for thirty years, using the streets to capture attention. Now, as a father of four and an established career artist, he uses the streets to evoke emotion and awareness, to dispel the myth that all graffiti is negative, and to uplift people with bright, resilient color.

"I tend to be drawn to songs and write songs that are rooted to a sense of place—for some reason this tends to be a source of lyrical inspiration. The music that I've made, especially on ["Encino"], has been informed by that landscape. You have this urban, sprawling, almost featureless grid of light and traffic, all these cars, and it's sort of drab. There are billboards everywhere. Then, you drive for a half an hour and you're in epic dramatic mountains or at the ocean. It's extremely romantic. That kind of tension between the mundane suburban landscape and the epic natural beauty of the West is interesting to me."—Henry Wolfe Music by Henry Wolfe Director Benjamin Kutsko Cinematographer Alex Disenhof Executive Producer Jack Richardson Starring Jena Malone, Charlie Wadhams, Benjamin Hjelm and Andrew Calder Hair by Ramsell Martinez Makeup by Bethany McCarty and Melinda Love Dean A Masses production Filmed at Pollution studios in Los Angeles

Os Gemeos - Art in the Streets - MOCAtv - Ep 23
 
03:59
São Paulo based graffiti artists Os Gemeos (The Twins) are internationally known for their vivid, surrealistic painting style and its playful political commentary. Before they began painting, Os Gemeos were active in their neighborhood's b-boy scene, where hip hop culture had reached by the late 1980s and gained a particularly strong presence. With limited contact to hip hop's origins in New York, Os Gemeos began developing their own technique and style, eventually infusing Brazilian cultural elements and imagery into their work. Since then, Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo have gained worldwide notoriety and an influential fan base. The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston recently invited Os Gemeos to have their first solo museum exhibition in the United States, where the pair showed paintings and mixed media pieces. In conjunction with the eponymous exhibition, Os Gemeos painted a large mural -- one of the first of its scale in Boston -- as a gift to the city.

TCTV: TELFAR A/W 2014 - Art + Fashion - MOCAtv
 
03:22
Ahead of his much-anticipated SS15 season, TELFAR—the eponymous unisex line of Liberian-American fashion prodigy Telfar Clemens—releases its A/W 2014 video look-book "TCTV" for W Magazine. Clemens' second collaboration with director Babak Radboy of the notorious meta-brand Shanzhai Biennial takes a key premise — that TELFAR is not an underground label but a global mega-brand — to new heights of unreasonableness. What results is almost literally a million-dollar production. "TCTV" engaged global leaders in the commercial imaging industry in a six-month game of telephone in which they worked independently of each other and with little information about what they were producing. The video was edited without backgrounds, the 3D built without the video, and the sound designed without a final edit. The visual effects team NTROPIC (Christina Aguilera, Gucci, Overstock.com) were only given the instruction that there should be "a lot of post production." Likewise, the New York-based sound designers at c5 studios, the go-to facility for Martin Scorsese, were given 109 tracks composed by artists Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch, and instructed to "make it sound like there is a lot of sound design." Less directed than outsourced, resulting video looks something like rushes from an Old Navy commercial directed by David Lynch: bizarre, compelling, funny, and new. At once commercial and avant-garde, "TCTV" epitomizes the TELFAR motto: Extremely Normal™. http://www.telfar.net DIRECTED AND PRODUCED BY: BABAK RADBOY VISUAL DIRECTION AND EDITING: RODRIGO TROMBINI PIREZ DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY: BRENDAN STUMPF TECHNICAL DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY: JEFFREY HAGERMAN STYLING: AVENA GALLAGHER POST PRODUCTION AND VISUAL EFFECTS NTROPIC MUSIC: RYAN TRECARTIN & LIZZIE FITCH SOUND DIRECTOR: PAUL HSU SOUND DESIGNER: JAMES KELLY FOLEY: LESLIE BLOOM 3D ENVIRONMENTS: STUDIO NO-TRIANGLE 3D SCANNING: DIRECT DIMENSIONS 3D OPTIMIZATION: AUGUSTUS WENDELL 3D PRINTING: SHAPEWAYS HAIR: LUKE BAKER MAKEUP: DEANA MELUSSO BARBER: FRAN FREEMAN POST-PRODUCTION ASSISTANCE: PSYOP COMPOSITOR: DANICA PARRY COMPOSITOR: DAVE CHEN, EX.

TELFAR X Future Brown

New York-based designer Telfar Clemens teams with Babak Radboy of meta-brand Shanzhai Biennial for his forthcoming collection of customizable sportswear, presenting it as an exercise in "mainstream" surrealism: highly polished, eminently accessible, yet stranger than any underground production. In a mise-en-abyme of branding staged at New York Fashion Week, models emerged from a video curtain displaying their own faces, mirrored those expressions on the runway, and for the finale, reappeared on the t-shirts of companions coming from backstage. The ambient video is cooked down and set to the sounds of Future Brown, a group consisting of Fatima Al Qadiri, J-Cush Teklife and Nguzunguzu, who debut their instrumental "Marbles" from their upcoming album. At once highly conceptual and obsessively practical, minimalist and irreverent, countercultural and mainstream, the TELFAR line maneuvers with cunning the fashion landscape by defining a brand which is neither conceptual nor accessible. Simply put, it is extremely normal. Directed by Babak Radboy. Editing & Effects: Rodrigo Trombini Pires. Director of Photography: Brendan Stumpf. Styling: Avena Gallagher.
