On Monday, April 287th I was on an Out in Tech panel. Out in Tech is a community of LGBT tech industry professionals in New York City. Also on the panel: Caitlin Thompson (WNYC), Elisa Kreisinger (Upworthy), Kate Lee (Medium) and Jamilah King (TakePart).

Here’s a great, comprehensive recap of the event by Will Pally. Some highlights below:

Feminist Playing Cards included in “Let’s Start a Pussy Riot” Book / NYC Book Launch

My Feminist Playing Card project is featured in a new book that just came out recently titled “Let’s Start a Pussy Riot” (Rough Trade Books). The book was created in collaboration with Pussy Riot and links together the events leading up to and after the group’s arrest and the themes that these courageous women fight for – feminism, LGBTQ rights, freedom of speech and the environment.

The initial book launch took place at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown Festival this year in London. The NYC launch will take place on Sunday, July 14th 2013 from 7-9pm at Bluestockings (172 Allen St, NYC). I was asked to be on a panel discussion about art as activism at the event with editor Jade French, Kembra Pfhaler, and Anne Sherwood Pundyk. There will also be a performance from Jeffrey Lewis and a poetry reading by Vivien Goldman.

RSVP & invite your friends on Facebook.

The book is SUPER thick. You can get an idea by the photo above which includes an iPhone next to it so you can see how much thicker the book is.

The page that the Feminist Playing Cards are featured on folds out into a spread.

Umbrella Insurance

May 2013, Brooklyn NY

I added some new photos of broken umbrellas to my Unfortunate Umbrella project. The one above is the most recent one. This one caught my eye immediately but there was always someone either walking a dog right by it or on their cell phone and I didn’t want to be weird so I walked past it twice, promising myself I’d go back and snap a photo of it at some point. Finally, a day later on my 3rd attempt, it was still there so I knew I had to take it or it could have been my last chance. I’m glad I waited because the arrangement of things around it had shifted a bunch and I really like how it came out. It gives a few cues towards our culture.

You can see the rest in my Unfortunate Umbrella gallery.
