Visibility's "Under the Office" Focuses on the Grind of Running a Product Design Studio

Mapping out our five year plans, rarely do we foresee the obstacles and challenges that will someday confront us along the way. The daily things: broken pencils, missed train rides, or a popped wheel. Function is never without failure.

Hollywood framed for a father

Maxie Cooper’s art exhibition, Now Showing, reels back in tribute to her movie mogul father Keki Modi and the golden cinema years he brought Bombay Brothers Sohrab Modi (extreme left) and Keki Modi with their wives Mehtab and Ellen It was irony heaped on irony. Four years ago, the last poster tore away from the New Empire walls. The film? 300: Rise of an Empire.
