Everyhere Logistics is a large, talented art crew, travelling across the country with interactive art in the back of rented box trucks, to share with your city. This is big. This is the start of a mobile revolution, where anyone can join, and everyone will benefit. This is art on a grand scale - the width of the United States.
I've been excited to work with them, and hope my own artistic contribution will help garner them the funds needed to accomplish this summer tour. Check out the full details on their Kickstarter page.
On Sunday March 8th, Emperor Norton set up shop underneath the Bay Bridge, with his Mail-in Engineering Academy. Well, maybe not the Emperor himself, but a convincing actor. Check out Kasey Smith's artistic venture, and the bigger picture of Everyhere Logistics along with her partner Mark Krawczuk.
The kids at AVAVA approached me again, with a joint project this time - a guerrilla garden in the dogpatch of San Francisco. Their complimentary missions drew them together, and I was lucky enough to be there for the start of something... gardeny.
Figment was an enveloping show. Smash a bunch of Bayeria locals together on a central Oakland inner-neighborhood park, and set them loose to do art on each other. It was an honor to be considered among them. No money exchanged hands, this was done purely for the pleasure of film.
Those of you here as a result of visiting our exhibit, thanks for your time, and especially the response. Now I know what it feels like to have fans! (Kinda creepy, actually). I know you were just in love with all our beautiful cast on site, but I don't mind the crumbs of that admiration.
It was a fantastic way to go out, finally retiring this show (after 3 events), selling the truck (email me if you're interested - fully self contained and solar power!), and ultimately having a day-long party with all you fellow weirdos.
Biggest thanks to the LANSING, who is a bulldozer of facilitating and feather tickler of inspiration.
As promised, here's a full copy of the movie for your viewing (and sharing) pleasure...
From my day-long shoot with the guys of AVAVA systems, I plucked out so much good stuff, I couldn't constrain myself to a single two-minute video. Instead, I went into a blood frenzy with the cutting, and compiled 8 solid informational blurbs for their website.
What they're doing with building technology is subverting the entire industry - now spread the good word on tomorrow's tech.
On the weekend of May 17th, I'll be shooting the AVAVA Systems build contest at Maker Faire. I LOVE MAKER FAIRE. I'll be excusing myself at every opportunity to check out what's spilling from people's minds and hands.
Much of my work with AVAVA thus far will be displayed on-site with their Folly One. Check them out, check it out, and check my shit out. Here's an exceprt.
