During the UN Climate Change Conference (COP15) in Copenhagen in December 2008, a collaboration venue for artists and climate activist groups was constructed to invite individuals to play “GOOD COP”. With access to the conference site growing increasingly restricted, GOOD COP aimed to make individual voices heard during the critical week of negotiations. The public was invited to come voice their own statements on the GOOD COP stage.
Corporate Commands is an ongoing series of public space performances based on corporate advertisements in the form of the imperative such as "Just Do It", "Turn on the Future", "Think different", etc. The Institute for Infinitely Small Things performs these corporate commands where they occur in the urban landscape, enacting each command as literally as possible. Past performances include: "Rollover", "Say it with Flowers", "Become a Believer", and "Enjoy Life".
Steve Lambert and Packard Jennings asked Bay Area architects, city planners, and transportation engineers, “What would you do if you didn’t have to worry about budgets, bureaucracy, politics, or physics?” Ideas from these conversations were then merged, developed, and perhaps mildly exaggerated by the artists to create a series of 6 posters for the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Art on Market Street Program. Supported by the Eyebeam OpenLab.
Hacking Couture is a platform for launching new fashion creations through an open source approach of reverse engineering fashion brands and making the code available online. Hands on workshops encourage participants to create using the codes regardless of their level of fashion knowledge, and to engage in the larger fashion conversation. By understanding the coding of established fashion, this project provides a platform to empower participants to step up and create.
