Celebrating nearly eight years of pop culture and R&D, the renegade art organization known as the Free Art & Technology (F.A.T.) Lab is going GOLD. F.A.T. GOLD, that is. From May 21-31, Gray Area Foundation for the Arts will present the acclaimed work of F.A.T. Lab. Curated by Lindsay Howard, the exhibition invites the public to experience and engage with the collective’s groundbreaking projects.

F.A.T. GOLD: San Francisco brings together an international group of thirty collaborators comprised of artists, hackers, engineers, musicians, and graffiti writers. Many of the members will be in San Francisco during the week of May 18, participating in panels, collaborative projects, and leading workshops.

Check out the Grey Area Festival site for more information on schedule, panels and talks!!!!

Upgrade? Downgrade? How about 5th Grade? Rogue F.A.T. Lab intern, Maddy Varner, offers this nostalgic OSX Yosemite patch to restore your system font to the classic Comic Sans. Maddy writes:

i recently upgraded from mavericks to yosemite & needless to say i was SHOCKED by the new ui changes, specifically the shift away from Lucida Grande to Helvetica Neue. like most people, i am frightened and scared by change, especially from the interfaces i use daily. i am so opposed to change, i have used my extensive “1337 haxx0r” training from middle school to create a specially-flagged font set that will change your system font to that of the popular and beloved, “Comic Sans”:

~*~*~*~DIRECTIONS YO~*~*~*~*~
to install simply unzip yosemite_sans.zip & drop the contents in your /Library/Fonts folder. log out & back in for the changes to take effect. (sometimes after the first install the font on the login screen will look a lil weird, it’s temporary & will go back to normal for subsequent logins.) to uninstall, just remove the fonts from the /Library/Fonts folder. no admin privileges should b necessary, & no system preferences r being changed.
