Today, NOWNESS.com showcases a major collaboration poetic short titled 'Boxer' by Steven Sebring.

It features the legendary musician and pop culture icon Patti Smith, who implements a freeform poem with a haunting feel; the reel is obscured and images are puzzling, much like a deep poem with undiscovered meaning. This short is a mashup between contemporary arts and fashion, where the dynamic duo Sebring and Smith get inspiration from the ReedKrakoff Boxer bag. The slow music in the background is by Smith's daughter, Jesse Paris.

"It's a pretty prosaic word that straddles the high-low divide," explains Sebring. "A number of things came to mind: a box, a ring, a fighter of course, the culture of the boxing ring and how everyone is there as a witness and everyone blends together."
