Copyright is tricky business. The problem with “fair use” is that even if you’re in the right you can still get sued out of existence. The internet has changed the way we interact with creative works, yet we are still governed by a hazy doctrine from 1976. Andy Baio details his experience with his pet [...]
“There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment” —Henri Cartier-Bresson Apparently the decisive moment even applies to shuttin’ off the TeeVee. I really like the photographs in Stephan Tillmans’ Luminant Point Arrays project. He captures these beautiful minimal images that I’m sure I’ve seen a million times without ever thinking [...]
Turn your digital photos into glass. Upload your favorite photo to Fracture and see the results of printing ink onto the back of shatter-proof glass. I’d love to see one in person. It’s a unique way to simplify the printing and framing process. It may even inspire me to print some photos!

Where are the hot photo spots in your city? Eric Fischer took the time to create city maps based on Flickr’s geotag data. Tourist photos are red, locals are blue, and yellow is unknown. If you are a tourist, this is a great way to find out where the locals hang out.
We started by defining the V.I. brand through color, authentic photography, and finessing their logo. The brand refresh provided a foundation for their new website design, VirginiaInnSeattle.com.
This is what the desktop on the first typing/computer class I had in school looked like. Booted up from a disk and everything. We would use the typing program and repeat the cryptic sentences in our books. Sentences like, ‘Ask a lad; ask a lass, all Jacks fall’. Yes we had typing books for our [...]
The Puget Sound’s unique biodiversity is at risk. Habitat destruction, over-fishing, increased toxin levels and global warming all combine to form an inhospitable environment for several species unique to this region. Astoundingly, even our vast system of National Parks is no longer a safe natural haven. Enter the National Parks Conservation Association. In this exhibition, [...]
