These sweet 5-color silkscreen prints of Earth and Atmosphere are available from the nice folks over at New Jersey-based Brainstorm whose booth I was dragged kicking and screaming from at Renegade. (nice use of Politica!)
Update: Brainstorm prints are now available in the Colossal Shop.
Artist Chad Person
has spent years constructing, fortifying, and concealing a safety shelter (dubbed RECESS
) that will allow him to survive the collapse of civilization. He has constructed weapons and surveillance systems
, detailed resource maps
, as well as animal traps, solar ovens, and the general acquisition of survival skills
RECESS began 2 years ago when I made my home in the southwest United States. Like much of the West, our reliance on the continuous import of vital resources (food, water, medical supplies) is unsustainable and untenable. Crisis preparedness is vital, and RECESS is my answer. It is a re-model, an insurance policy, an experiment, a test of personal mettle, and an obsession. Survival is everything.
Kodak’s first digital camera designed in 1975.
It took 23 seconds to record the digitized image to the cassette. The image was viewed by removing the cassette from the camera and placing it in a custom playback device. This playback device incorporated a cassette reader and a specially built frame store. This custom frame store received the data from the tape, interpolated the 100 captured lines to 400 lines, and generated a standard NTSC video signal, which was then sent to a television set.
