“‘A dream,’ says Alex Trebek. ‘I have this dream where I’m sitting in a chair on a little hill in the middle of a field. The field, which is verdant and clovered, is covered with rabbits. They sit and look at me. There must be a million rabbits in that field. They all sit and look at me. Some of them lower their little heads to eat clover. But their eyes never leave me. They sit there and look at me, a million bunny rabbits, and I look back.’”

Great piece by 3D on our man Basquiat, yes him again.

3D admits “so the game was up for me with graffiti, because the police knew who I was.”  Reminds us of the ‘friend of a friend’ who recently had the same problem, perhaps tagging law enforcement vehicles was leaving the clues a bit too close to home.

Good inspiring read about The Wild Bunch, collectives and art mixing with music and innovation…

Tagging the inside of the vehicle was how it ended up

In the smart-city equivalent — “Grub City” — I see citizens mocking the homogenising of static urban data infrastructures and rejecting their bids to handle cities’ “super wicked” messes through reductivist approaches to data. What we decide to measure, how we decide to measure, and why we decide to measure — these questions are vital for Grub City citizens, who craft and perform data “badly” and “messily”, because that enables invention unanticipated by planners.
