"In trying to pin down a definition of anarchism, some make the mistake of examining it exclusively in terms of its theory or practice in the 1870s or 1930s but, like any other historical phenomenon, it has changed over time. Apart from debatable personal and collective acts, anarchism’s holistic perspective on oppression has been constrained by the conditions in which it has existed. This has been evident in issues pertaining to race, sexuality, and gender, for example, but one can also discern the proximity between anarchist thought and mainstream bourgeois thought during the 19th century in an explicit commitment to positivism, aesthetic realism, a Euro-centric conception of the progress of civilization, technological modernization, and biological evolutionary development. Fortunately, anarchism has shed most of that baggage but we can never entirely transcend our historical context. That is why our understanding of anarchism must not be so loose as to be meaningless, but not so rigid as to ignore areas of contradiction and historical transformation."

“We met online.”
“And then we went for a date.”
“It was a good first date, but she had a secret she wasn’t telling me.” 
“Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. When we met, I didn’t have a lot of hair and I was wearing a wig.”
“I complimented her hair because it was so perfect, and she didn’t tell me it was a wig. She told me a couple of dates later.”

This is Zazzz, thought to be the country’s first identity-verifying marijuana vending machine. It was unveiled this month in Avon, Colorado, and it can check a purchaser’s identity before dispensing a product from an array of available items, including edibles and pre-rolled joints.

My most recent piece is a bedframe inspired by Ulm Cathedral and the elm tree. The birds are based on the Ulmer Spatz. It’s queen-sized, made of steel, bronze, and wood (oak). There are outlets in the frame at either side of the head. Total weight ~160kg (350lbs). The project took around 350-400 hours of combined labor for design, construction, photography, and delivery/assembly.

I’m really proud of it! There’s definitely a little bit of my soul (and blood, sweat, and tears) in this thing. Please pass it on if you like what you see.
