Book cover design for this competition.

Unfortunately, as I am not resident in UK I cannot take part in the competition.

But as I really like the concept of crowdsourcing and as I am a regular reader of Wired magazine as well as the Creative Review, I created this piece as a friendly salutation to the guys in these great publications.

 

The mosaic illustration is made with hundreds of croped portraits. All non croped images are downloaded from one of the first crowdsourcing photo sites, the Stock Exchange and are given away without restrictions.

 

The mosaic is made in Synthetik Studio Artist, Adobe Photoshop and Apple QuickTime Pro with custom developed scripts. Final layout is made in Adobe Illustrator.

Special thanks to Joe Dalton, the developer of Studio Artist and Dave Nagel, who's tutorials, SA paint patches and plug-ins in www.creativemac.com have helped me enormously building a solid background for my mosaic experiments. I really miss his excellent articles there.

 

Typeface used is PF Agora Slab Pro, designed by Panos Vassiliou and distributed by Parachute Fonts.

Thanks for giving me this, mate!

 

Additional credit must go to my friend Isidoros Koliavras for providing me some good food for thought, as well as some useful tools for my mosaics.

 

I am wishing good luck and all the best to all collegues, pros and amateurs out there.

It is official. Mixtapes are almost impossible to find in the wild. Big thrift stores don't carry them, small thrift stores sometimes have them, but not often. People are more likely to throw away or keep a mixtape instead of donating them to their local thrift store. Even when you donate to the goodwill they throw them away.

 

So, I want to draw your mixtapes. I want your sad songs, you love jams, your sing at the top of your lungs car tunes, your break-up tape, your make-up tape and your BFF-4evah cassette.

 

I am only drawing the tape. If you want to participate, please snap a picture of the best side of your favorite tape and email it to me (see my profile) or upload it to your flickrstream and let me know.

Just fell on my hand (again!) and it's quite painful.

 

Now instead of spending a ridiculous two hours waiting at the OLVG ER to get a picture taken, I'm going to try this first: crowd sourced medicine. Leave your diagnosis in the comments below and we'll see what floats to the top.

La financiación colectiva, crowdfunding, como ejercicio de personas en comunidad.

A copyrighted work by an established photographer is framed and hung in a museum; a crowd gathers round. Among the crowd is a less established or emergent photographer who captures the scene and makes the result freely available for anyone to use under a Creative Commons deed.

 

Type

The workhorse Akzidenz Grotesk, mother of sanserifs, is paired with Unibody 8, a font made freely available by the Dutch foundry Underware. A bitmap font originally designed for screen use at 8-pt., Unibody also occasionally surfaces in print.

I was putting mulch around the trunk of a pine tree, seated on the ground with my left leg outstretched. A female Scrub Jay arrived and perched on a pine branch just above the ground and about ten feet from me on my left. She began loudly to proclaim some type of alert, which I assumed had to do with a predatory bird aloft or nearby.

 

Next another female Scrub Jay arrived and perched inches away from the first bird. Together, they voiced some type of distress in crescendo fashion. Both then looked down near my left foot and persisted in their warnings. I focused on their synchronized opening and closing of their beaks. . . .

 

Then, about five feet from my left foot, moving in my direction I saw the source of their anxious crowdsourcing behavior. It was a Bullsnake! I drew my left leg in, jumped up, and backed away. I picked up my camera just after it moved by where I had been seated. It continued on to seek cover underneath an evergreen bush.

 

This muscular five-foot-long (can be up to eight feet) constrictor snake is nonvenomous, but has a reputation for being irascible. And it mimics well the behavior and appearance of the Diamondback Rattlesnake.

 

Like the rattlesnake, it will flatten its head to look like a viper, posture its body in an S-shape, and vibrate its tail against an object to sound like a rattle. Its hissing is impressive also!

 

It lingered briefly and I managed to get a few macro photos before it next passed through our vegetable garden. Grateful that nothing ill came from this close encounter, I was sure to reward the two female "crowdsourcing" Jays with a few peanuts before I left.

“Crowd-sourcing Environmental Governance” workshop by Cesar Harada & Shannon Dosemagen.

2011 March 8 & 10, Design & Environment, Goldsmiths University of London.

 

Hello! Here is Cesar Harada and Shannon Dosemagen writing from the Gulf of Mexico, USA. We are thrilled to announce the upcoming hands-on workshop we’ll be having together in London : Come! And let’s ignite the discussion here.

 

ABSTRACT : Problem, Questions, Objectives

Each of us is not only witnessing, but actively participating in the degradation of our environment, our only life support system. The symptoms range from climate change, man made catastrophes, resource wars, resulting environmental refugees, etc. We are lacking a powerful environmental authority, a court of justice, and coordination in general. We have amazing earth science but poor individual education, international collateral treaties but no capacity to reinforce them. Governments and institutions are powerless to mitigate such complex and border-less issues. Can the solution emerge from the civil society? Can the people re-invent environmental governance with new technologies, collaborative medias, crowd sourcing, and mobile technologies? Do we need a central authority or can we generate decentralized, local, humble, bottom-up solutions? Can we design alternative services, products, technologies, infrastructures and behaviors as the new form of environmentalism. How can we go beyond activism and sustain long term positive change – what is your strategy?

 

WORKSHOP

Social Geometry, Architecture of play, Natural or Man-made Catastrophe, Humanitarian response to crisis, Crowd sourcing Environmental Governance. During 2 days, 10 students will be supervised by Cesar Harada (France – Japan) and Shannon Dosemagen (USA) at the Design & Environment department at the Goldsmith University, London. During the first half, they will experiment with social networks and how they can generate an operational organization and architecture. The students will be introduced to existing forms of environmental governance and cutting edge design and activism. During the second half, groups of students will elaborate their own designs in the area of their interest. Workshop leaders will help them model-building ideas that are creative, local, replicable and scalable. The workshop is aimed at starting a discussion, to encourage the students to take action in the “real world” and have short-term local experiments to learn from.

 

THE PEOPLE : Students, Workshop leaders

The workshop for the Design & Environment students from Goldsmiths University will require the students to venture their thinking into diverse fields : architecture, law, economy, politics, environmental engineering, anthropology, computer science, social media etc. The groups projects are expected to be diverse and exploratory. Cesar Harada has a background in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art, won the Ars Electronica Golden Nica [NEXT IDEA] with the Open_Sailing project, worked as project leader and researcher at MIT, and is coordinating the making of the WEA (World Environment Action) website started in *iHub_ Nairobi, Kenya. Cesar is currently coordinating the development of Protei : an oil cleaning open hardware robot.

 

Shannon Dosemagen has a background in Anthropology from the University of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Shannon is the coordinator of the Oil Spill Map at LA Bucket Brigade, mapping the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, using Ushahidi, a software allowing people to report by SMS, twitter, mail, on the acclaimed website oilspill.labucketbrigade.org. Shannon has also been piloting the aerial mapping of the Oil Spill by communities as part of the Public Laboratory group. Shannon has extensive community, field and teaching experience, interested in social implications of environmental events, and environmental refugees in particular.

 

DAY 1 : March 8th

Morning : Oil Spill mapping, World Environmental Action. Environmental governance and cutting edge activism. Groups brainstorming.

Afternoon : Social networks and Architecture of Play (choreography, construction)

 

DAY 2 : March 10th

Morning : Design. Theory in practice.

Afternoon : Thinking by doing.

Evening : Presentation of project ideas.

 

Discussion

We would like to start asking questions to open up the discussion, please comment below and ask more questions – we’ll answer in line :)

1>> When you think about environmentalism, what comes first to your mind? Is it the little actions like recycling / the activist social group / the green ‘leaders’ / green designs and brands / the materials we use / scientific research / global warming / your own body / your children / the philosophical current / something else? Which action has the strongest and longest lasting impact? Can you make a personal numbered list below here, in the comments?

 

2>> When you think about environmental politics, what comes first to your mind? How do you feel about the current relation between the environment and politics today? How does it affect the majority of peoples life?

 

3>> As a designer what do you think is your role about environmental issues?

 

Feel free to contact us before and after the workshop : contact {at} cesarharada {dot} com _ shannon {at} publiclaboratory {dot} org. Looking forward to meet you all! Cesar and Shannon.
