I gave an overview of the current state of Guerrilla Marketing for the Geek Graffiti class I’m teaching this semester at Parsons. It’s a little bit disappointing how clever some of these are… if only they would fight on the side of good. Click link below and get your scroll on:

Thanks to Mouna for the invitation.
I’ve been teaching an undergraduate course at Parsons on visual programming called Design Lab 5. There is example code from myself and students up at the following URL for those interested in Processing:
For no real reason I am attempting to write the entire course website by hand using EMACS…. this may somewhat explain why it looks so dope. I also worked in remixing Zach’s Making Things Move workshop with Michael Jackson, Mike Myers, and George Bush.
I will be giving a talk at RIT School of Design on Sat. night called Towards a New Graffiti. It should be fun and I will be showing some new projects, so if you are in the area please come by. The info is below:
Sat. Feb. 4th
6:30 Carison Auditorium [bldg 76]
Big thanks Ken, Bill and everyone at RIT and the NY AIGA for the invitation.
The Graffiti Analysis application will be on display in the Parsons gallery starting this Wednesday, May 25th, from 6-8pm at 66 5th Ave. (NYC). There will be a lot of other fun new media projects on display as well, so it should be a good show. More specific info is pasted below.
The day of the opening I will also be officially done with graduate school, so after the show I will attempt to drink myself into a coma.

Garamond is one of my favorite typefaces so I thought I would post this thesis project I saw on display in the Parsons gallery. It’s by Troy Lumpkin and seems to draw connections between type and architecture.
In the parsons gallery on 5th ave. there is a thesis project on exhibition with a poster en-titled “Graffiti Analysis”…… which happens to be the current title of my thesis project. All I have to say to this obvious academic threat BRING IT ON SCHOOL BOY. We should do a thesis battle to the death for rights to this title!
(This project is actually really great and worth checking out if you are around 5th ave. and 13th st. This person as developed a set of graffiti symbols for the homeless which would allow them to identify friendly areas, food sources, etc.)
The different departments at Parsons are starting to show work on the ground floor galleries on 13st. and 5th ave. The illustration show was worth a look.
After a lot of difficult conversations with people a lot smarter than me I have decided to take my thesis in a new direction. My new thesis will be titled “Pretty Pictures! Yea!”. What kind of animal doesn’t love pretty pictures??!?!……..Yea!
Thanks a lot to Clay for sharing some 3D code that worked wonderfully.
