Emily Pilloton: Teaching design for change

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010
Designer Emily Pilloton moved to rural Bertie County, in North Carolina, to engage in a bold experiment of design-led community transformation. She's teaching a design-build class called Studio H that engages high schoolers' minds and bodies while bringing smart design and new opportunities to the poorest county in the state.

New York City Subway Photos

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
I love these photos chronicling the history of the New York City subway. There is something about the way a city gets used, like any other space gets used, that is really fascinating to me. People getting their hustle on, handling their business, making it work.

Face2Face, a project by the anonymous JR. When we met in 2005, we decided to go together in the Middle-East to figure out why Palestinians and Israelis couldn't find a way to get along together. We then traveled across the Israeli and Palestinian cities without speaking much. Just looking to this world with amazement. This holy place for Judaism, Christianity and Islam. This tiny area where you can see mountains, sea, deserts and lakes, love and hate, hope and despair embedded together. After a week, we had a conclusion with the same words: these people look the same; they speak almost the same language, like twin brothers raised in different families. A religious covered woman has her twin sister on the other side. A farmer, a taxi driver, a teacher, has his twin brother in front of him. And he his endlessly fighting with him. It's obvious, but they don't see that. We must put them face to face. They will realize.

Waiting for “Superman”

Monday, November 15th, 2010
Waiting for Superman is a powerful new documentary from Participant Media about the education crisis in America. We saw it on Saturday in Omaha. Touching and infuriating, a kind of hopeless look at a stark reality that demands a passionate response from an engaged citizenry to make change as soon as possible. Pledge to see the film and Take Action. A couple video animations done to support the film:
