A methane digester (or biofuel burner) generally turns cow manure into a burnable gas. Matt Mazzotta (of Buscycle fame) has been piloting a methane digester than pulls gas from dog turds. He has already made a functional coconut, and now plans to turn dog parks in Boston into biofuel-lit tea houses. He is calling this project Park Spark.

Florian Meisenberg sez:

SOMMERRUNDGANG 2010: "imagine a 3 days interactive, experimental festival of open creativity with endless will towards absurd and failure and you might get an idea about it... it is quite soon but never too late to participate. It is called the Sommerrundgang and will take place in the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf."

Any chance to work with Florian should be taken. So if you are interested in plying the edges of reality with kaleidoscopic earnest smart-ass effervescence, then find a way to participate in this festival.

Getting inside my computer, by Nathaniel Katz, will be screened at Deep Leap Microcinema, as part of "THE INTERNET IS A TERRIBLE PLACE TO LIVE." Think yoga + irony + suffering + harpo. Don't think baudrillard or zizek.

Sarah McCrory on Mathew Sawyer: "Sawyer's work literally extends from his house out to the people that confront his day to day life, from neighbours to local shopkeepers, and down the road to the jobcentre. Through these actions in the outside world, Sawyer creates the role of a self-scripting narrator or story-teller, casting strangers as the players and setting situations that implicate him into a disruption, however slight, in their lives."

You look into a store window, and instead of seeing your reflection, you see the reflection from a window on a street corner in another part of town. And you can talk.

In an effort to bridge gaps between two very different neighborhoods of Boston (Roxbury and Brookline), digital media artist John Ewing created the public art project Virtual Street Corners. The project, set to unveil June 2010, uses live video feeds between the predominantly African-American and Jewish neighborhoods.
