Here’s a demonstration of Quintron’s invention The Singing House. It’s a house rigged with rain drop collectors and wind censors that turns storms, sunsets, etc. into something like ambient music… but with lots of synth. Can you dig it? Can you stand it? […]

The Hypothetical Development Organization has a few ideas in mind for the derelict sites of New Orleans. Part of the project involved wheatpasting “coming soon” posters for the Museum of Self with a giant “Like” thumb up portruding from its glass fasade, a plastic tower hive of “high-tech snooze pods” and other fantastical structures. Kudos […]

In a new project by New Orleans’ Candy Chang (Wish I Was…), an abandoned building on Marigny and Burgundy gets reincarnated as a public chalkboard. The communal bucket-list now reads: Before I Die I Want To… “save my soul,” “sex it up,” “hike the Appalachian trail” and, our favorite, “be tried for piracey.” See all […]

The evidence of murder had become absorbed into continuous urban decay, but it still tallies into New Orleans’ status as US’s homicide […]

Vinyl “I wish this was…” stickers have spored all over New Orleans’ shuttered buildings and shattered streets. Labels vary from the basic “I wish this was a bike rack” or “a grocery” to the fantastic wishing “a California-style medical marijuana dispensary” to the horrific, wishing for Disneyland in Jackson Square.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, people were bugging. With no help and conditions dipping to third world levels, many expressed their despair with spray paint. All around New Orleans, it was the writing on the walls that told the real story and Richard Misrach was there to document it. Using a crappy digital camera, […]

It appears so…or at the very least, a strong advocate. Here’s video of Luda knocking on doors in New Orleans and hitting the airwaves in an effort to encourage people to fill out the 2010 Census. Wish they would have showed footage of him knocking on some tea bagger’s doors. |Nah Right| […]
