Trespass: a History of Uncommissioned Urban Art

Trespass: a History of Uncommissioned Urban Art

Sep 20, 2010

Trespass. A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art is a new 320-page Taschen book by Carlo McCormick (pop culture critic, curator and Senior Editor of Paper magazine), Marc and Sara Schiller (founders of the Wooster Collective), Ethel Seno (editor). In recent years street art has grown bolder, more ornate, more sophisticated and—in many cases—more acceptable. Yet […]

Urban Forest Map

Urban Forest Map

Aug 27, 2010

I was still curious after taking this photo of the trees on 24th Street at Bryant earlier today. How could I identify these trees?  I did several searches on variations of “trees on 24th street mission san francisco” which brought up some great local links, including SFTrees and a good list of trees in the Mission […]

Clever Car

Clever Car

Apr 28, 2006

Researchers in England have been working on a prototype for a “clever” (Compact Low Emission Vehicle for Urban Transport) car.  The car has three wheels and tilts for easy manueverability. The prototype is purely a research project and is unlikely to come to market in its present form. But the researchers hope that car companies […]

Barcode Building

Aug 12, 2005

I’ve always like the simplicity and functionality of bar codes.  In art school, I made a series of oversized bar code prints as rough posters and had a collection of various bar codes pulled from packaging and collected in one sketchbook.  So whenever I walk by this green building on Harrison during my walk to […]

SF Night

Aug 5, 2005

Night time traffic on the interstate as seen from our window. Even after a year, this scene still fascinates me. Any hour of the day or night, endless cars stream across several curved interstate ramps running into the city and diverging onto ramps heading towards the bay bridge. (Shot on digital video, looped and converted […]

99 Windows

99 Windows

Nov 20, 2004

Launched a new site today, 99 Windows, an art project about windows and the idea of looking in, looking through, and reflecting — seeing both the imaginary and the real, the periphery and the obvious. My hope is to evoke a filmic, emotional or psychological state in one short instance online, in a loop.

First Night in SF

First Night in SF

Aug 12, 2004

We’ve finally moved from New York to San Francisco.  It’s the first night in the loft and we’re soaking in the magic from our eleventh floor view.  It’s almost the same view that we used to have when we visited and stayed at the Argent on third street.  From here, we can see more than […]

Blackout Blog

Aug 15, 2003

Power is back up in Ithaca, NY.  Check this link for blackout coverage on the web.  Yesterday, our power cut out at 4:11 pm like many on the east coast.  I was in the middle of a work email and was irked, thinking it was a fuse blowing out.  We looked out and heard neighbors […]

Putrajaya

Dec 19, 2002

Really interesting to see how Malaysia is evolving from when I lived there in the nineties. Malaysia is building a 21st century city from scratch with natural environmental and digital vision. Malaysia is building itself a new national capital. The city, Putrajaya, is now the Administrative Centre of the Federal Government of Malaysia. The old […]
