Ted Polhemus has written and edited over a dozen books and his talks are a must see guide to youthculture, identity and the sociology of style and the body in todays trans- global supermarket of style.
First published in 1994 his book Streetstyle from sidewalk to catwalk has become an influential sartorial style bible ever since its launch at a major exhibition curated by Polhemus at London's Victoria and Albert Museum. The book contained insightful essays, photography and illustrations chronicling the evolution of over 50 years of youth culture, highlighting the importance of social and communicative personal expression in street fashion and its relationship to music. Polhemus explored the worlds of diverse style tribes including Hipsters and TeddyBoys to Beats, Rockabillies, Mods Surfers, Hippies to Punks, Goths, B Boys and Ravers

"We interpret our mission widely - whilst we don’t turn up our noses at the trivial, popular & amusing we also try to post the best (and the most intriguing or challenging) in new video work, so daily posts are exclusively prepared by folk who are themselves involved in making video work. We’ve insisted on always having a QuickTime copy of each piece for our server and so we have built up a large historical archive of the explosive development of online art video over the last few years'. dvblog
