BYOC (bring your own clothes) and we’ll have the tailoring tools, sewing machines, conductive thread, LED’s, soldering irons, and the Laser Cutter to help you hack clothes into fashionable technology. Fashion designers and hardware hackers will be on hand to help you.

Los Angeles Sign Series - Sand Ocean Sky

Sand Ocean Sky - The Commons
Commercial Roadside Sign
Los Angeles Coastline, 2009

Just after the opening of my solo show at Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles we loaded up a rented pick-up truck with the arrow sign I included in the show. When I came across various locations in the city, we untied the sign, carried it over and snapped some shots - each time improvising a message for the face. This photo series is an extension of some earlier drawing work you might want to see.

I jusy posted these. If you are interested in purchasing any of these as prints, I will announce when the prints are ready and cost on my mailing list.




It was recorded from the stream.  It is a little choppy, and is overdubbed with the live translation.  So its good if you speak Spanish

facebook invite everybody

Sick an tired of clicking several hundred times when you want to invite your friends to a Facebook event? Yeah, me too. So I wrote a Greasemonkey script that does it for you. And just to be thorough, I wrote a bookmarklet too (for you non-GM people.)

It is all up at http://TheRedProject.com/scripts along with some other simple utility scripts I wrote, on the newly cleaned up front end to TheRedProject.com, which is my utility & storage domain.

Solving Problems…

We are pleased to announce that The Upgrade! New York is now co-produced in collaboration with Brooklyn-based activist organization Not An Alternative, and will focus on topics related to open source activist and creative practices for the upcoming year.

This month’s gathering takes place at Not An Alternative’s storefront gallery space, The Change You Want To See, and features a talk and video screening from the September 2007 Monk protests, known as the Saffron Revolution, in which mobile phones and the internet allowed protesters to coordinate and publicize the largest protests seen in a generation.

Co-presented by Not An Alternative and Digital Democracy

projectStarting today I will be writing a DIY Fashion column for Craft magazine that shows how to follow runway trends on the cheap by making them yourself. My first article, DIY Fashion: Reinventing Hosiery, looks at styling hosiery for the summer drawing inspiration from Prada, Burberry, Gossip Girl, etc.. All of my DIY fashions are easy and quick so that anyone can make them with any level of sewing skills. After all, so much of fashion relies on styling.
