We present the design of an adjustable lasercut stencil pattern for pie-chart graffiti.
The pattern includes a complete set of re-arrangeable letters and numbers.
Changing the stencil’s message and pie-chart percentage is straightforward.
The stencil has a few noteworthy design features:
Here are the stencil designs (Illustrator CS4 .PDF format):
I’m excited to announce the official launch of a new project I’ve been working on with Mozilla. Mark Up is an online statement of solidarity in support of a web that should remain open, free and healthy. It’s similar in concept to an online petition where everyone is invited to add their signature, name or mark. Each mark is rendered in 3D using HTML5 and connected end-to-end to form a continuous line, representing a unified global statement on the fundamental importance of an open and free internet. Add your mark and become part of the line that connects you, me, Lawrence Lessig, James Boyle and many others:
Mark Up is an open initiative with both the data and source code freely available. All of the marks are saved as .gml (Graffiti Markup Language) and can be used interchangeably with many other applications.
For any data nerds, the entire collection of marks will be made available here and updated periodically as the site grows.
Much of the credit for this project goes to Laura Mesa and many very busy Mozillians. Development for the project was done primarily by The Barbarian Group.
RIP Kino.to the biggest german movie streaming site is OFFLINE *sniff* We will miss you!!
Die Erinnerung ist ein Fenster durch das ich Dich sehen kann, wann immer ich will. – Du bist nicht mehr da, wo Du warst, aber Du bist überall, wo wir sind. – Ganz leise ohne ein Wort, gingst du für immer von uns fort. Es ist so schwer dies zu verstehen, doch einst werden wir uns wiedersehen.

I am very pleased to announce 2 SPEED SHOWs for upcoming Wednesday: ‘Awareness of everything’ curated by Lindsay Howard in NYC and ‘Fun is back!’ by Olia and me here in Stutgart. CU there! :) All SPEED SHOW announcements, documentations and archive at speedshow.net
The phrase “Awareness of Everything” is drawn from a recent essay published by Erik Stinson called Towards A New Theory of Creativity. At the heart of this essay, Stinson describes the role of the contemporary creative, and outlines the skills one must develop in order to ‘become creative’ or ‘more creative’.Inspired by this theory, the projects collected in Awareness of Everything embody these seminal skills, chiefly: humor, surprise, effective communication, extensive knowledge of a wide variety of cultures and forms, along with the proposal that “the internet has rendered originality meaningless as a strictly policed absolute.”
Visitors are encouraged to play, surf, copy/paste, tweet, blog, and email during the opening, an involvement which is built into the Speed Show exhibition format as an ode to the user’s active engagement, expression and move toward an awareness of everything.
