    SCHEDULE:
    6PM: Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, 2323 Mission St
    7PM: El Rio, 3158 Mission St
    8PM: St. Mary's Pub, 3845 Mission St

    Facebook Event | SFTRU Website Event

    We're riding the 14 in honor of Valentine's Day on the 14th (but two days early). Come alone, come with a date, come with all your transit-loving friends. This will be the best platonic pre-Valentine's Day celebration you ever had on a bus.

    This will be the third in an ongoing series of roving fundraisers I've organized for SF Transit Riders: current and future riders united to achieve excellent, affordable, and growing public transportation in San Francisco.

  • LINES MADE BY WALKING

    Friday, September 19th-Sunday, October 19th, 2014
    StoreFrontLab, 337 Shotwell St
    San Francisco, CA

    For five weekends, I will be leading walks from StoreFrontLab to locations around the perimeter of the city, going counterclockwise from North to Northeast. On each walk, we will collectively track points and moments of interest, marking them on the sidewalk with chalk and recording field notes. Throughout the month, I will transcribe these encounters in the same chalk by marking their precise locations on a map projected directly on the wall in the gallery. The final installation and sound piece will be a scaled representation of the 7 mile by 7 mile drawing our marks make throughout the city.

    SCHEDULE:
    Friday Eve 9/19: Opening Reception
    Saturday 9/20: Walk 1: North
    Saturday 9/27: Walk 2: Northwest
    Sunday 10/5: Walk 3: Southwest
    Wed. Eve 10/8: Maptime SF (Hand-drawn Map Open Hack Night)
    Sunday 10/12: Walk 4: Southeast
    Saturday 10/18: Walk 5: Northeast
    Sunday Eve 10/19: Closing Celebration

    All walks depart from 337 Shotwell St at 12PM.

    Lines Made By Walking is kicking off StoreFrontLab’s 2014/15 season, City Making: a nine-month series of installations, wanderings, happenings, and conversations that look critically and optimistically at San Francisco’s future. From invisible histories to cashless transactions, from gentrification to psychogeography, and from regenerative microbes to reengineering community, City Making explores the inner cultural, social, and functional mechanisms of our city.

  • MAKE MY MONDAY at Fort Mason

    Monday, January 25th
    6:30-9:30PM, 2010
    Fort Mason Firehouse

    Make My Monday is a monthly event where you can come watch artists make art in front of your very eyes! All of the creations that you witness are for sale at an actually affordable price.

    But of course, I'm going to do things a little differently. I'm calling it You Make My Monday: instead of watching me do it, you get to paint on a giant canvas while I lurk behind you continuously snapping photos. Later, I will string the photos into a stop-motion video, documenting our creative experience FOREVER.

    Come make and be art!
