Our second featured artist for our exhibition "Every Mixtape is a Love Letter" is Holly Magenta Diadora.

Holly, a text based artist, has made this stunning friendship bracelet carefully woven from pink iridescent cotton, which holds in place wooden blocks bearing the inscription MAC OS X. 

MAC OS X, whose X is the Roman numeral ten and is a prominent part of its brand identity, is a Unix based graphical operating system, built on technologies developed at Next between the second half of the 1980s and Apple's purchase of the company in late 1996.

MAC OS X is known for its stability, as well as being hard to hack.

Holly's bracelet brings to mind the notion that most friendships are 'hackable', whether it be from boyfriends, replacement friends or outside interests. The psychological pun here is that MAC OS X bracelet much like the MAC OS X the operating system, may well bring stability to your relationships.

Holly was emphatic that the piece was not a tribute to the late Steve Jobs.

Holly's piece was inspired by the song "Halcyon On + On" by Orbital

Here's to friendship... that goes on + on.

I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
