Nina Cristante is an artist, autodidactic nutritionist, Aquarius and my best friend. Had it not been for a mutual friend linking us during her temporary stay in NYC seven months back, I may’ve never been introduced to the full spectrum of her work. Just a subtle trail of digital breadcrumbs. Slow-mo-promo. A whisper, a wink, a bikini body meme. A deliberately ambiguous website hosting austere at-home workout videos and fragments of clients’ food diaries.
While Blood Orange sings “come into my bedroom,” Haley Wollens and crew has taken NY’s finest out of their IRL bedrooms and into URL ones we can all enjoy. This video is timeless… mixing 3D with 2D, Gaultier with Eckhaus Latta, bedroom eyes with split grinds. When’s the last time you danced in your room by yourself? Yeah, that what we thought.
