Francis Alys - Sometimes Making Something Leads to Nothing (1997)
An approach based on network theory reveals the pattern of links between Mafia-controlled firms involved in organized crime and the rest of the economy.
I did a short interview with painter Emily Burns in preparation for her brand new print, “Tactile Response,” (Second image above) for The People’s Printshop which will be released tomorrow: Friday, March 14th.
Being juggling too many balls at the same time lately
Every one seems to be doing military-inspired these days and we wanted to highlight a new brand that’s doing it right. Authentic Apparel Group just launched their line of premium army style clothing that’s officially licensed by the U.S. Army. They’ve taken classic pieces like the field jacket and the flight bomber, and are updating them to fit more modern cuts.
They have a great cause tied to their line as well. Every purchase of U.S. Army merchandise aids the Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Program, which benefits the lives of soldiers, retirees, and their families. Check them out and support our troops.
I have been always tempted to use power tools for even the small project, that’s because I think that only using such tools everyday you can tailor them to your workflow and hence become more efficient.
It’s been years that now more and more code is being developed in the cloud using a plethora of tools like jsfiddle just to mention one, that increase collaboration and make it easy to develop code using common frameworks without having to setup a project tree structure.
This looks to me like a big shift in the mindset, exactly what the “designing in the browser” prophets, were all about; basically it all boils down to more code and less assets management, which is one the great hassles of front-end developement.
One of the latest ides I tried out is Brackets. It’s an open source editor backed by Adobe and community driven.
Brackets is built with html/css/js but it’s packaged as a desktop app which means it integrates with your workflow quite seamlessy, but it offers all the features of these web based ides with as much as the workflow speed up you can get from them, plus, it has a lot of cool feature and an extension ecosystem which makes it easy to expand.
Be sure to give it a try and judge it by yourself.
Refined some details in dither.js, now accepting more palette and different dithering methods..
