The good folks at Coilhouse were kind enough to release something I’ve been working on for a bit: The DIY Guy Fawkes Bandana Remix Fun Pack Genuine Revolutionary Occupy Experience Machine!
The general idea is that I’d like people to be anonymous, wearing protection, projecting a captivating image, employing creative disruption, and in possession of crucial data whether protesting or no. I also believe in opening up the source as much as humanly possible/ethical/feasible on all of my projects.
After seeing protests erupt all over the world I wanted to make something that could change the game a little. I want people to be able to protest with OWS without the risk of being fired for showing solidarity. I wanted to make something useful, portable, something that could make the biggest difference to the most people. I came up with this mask.
Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been out and about animating a big new thing for the big new Disney store in Time Square. It’s half awesome and half awful. If you’re ever in that neighborhood and happen to glance Disney-ward (not that I’d recommend it) you’ll be able to decide for yourself.
I drift through zones of being pro and anti-pumpkin. There are times when the tiny little saws don’t break and I’m not clearing vast swatches of diamond hard pumpkin jizm off the kitchen table that I think to myself “You know, pumpkin carving isn’t all that bad.”
I’ve discovered, over the years, that pumpkin etching, painting, sculpting, and mechanizing are far more rewarding to wit: my Guy Fawkes Jack-O-Lantern. Observe ye mighty and despair.
