Alexandra Tatarsky, The Three-Brained Robot, Bubblegum Octopus and Kate Ferencz

March 22, 2022 at 7pm

Alexandra Tatarsky and The Three-Brained Robot both create bizarre, mind-bending performances that defy description. This chance to see the two of them together in one place is highly recommended for those of you who like the weird stuff. Followed by more “normal music” of the glitchy, electronic, and emotionally charged variety; you can expect to laugh and cry and dance at this thing, if you dare.

What is tintype?
Tintype is a 19th-century photographic process,  used contemporarily to create one-of-a-kind handmade photographs. The process was invented in 1851 and remained the predominant image-making technology until the end of the 1870s. Tintype involves coating a sheet of tin with a sticky substance called collodion which is then submerged in a bath of silver nitrate.  Essentially this action creates a piece of film which is then exposed to light and taken through a chemical development, stopping, and fixing process. While the plate is fixed, it can be exposed to daylight. At this time viewers will see a blue negative turn into a black and white positive. Once washed and dried, the plate is coated with a layer of shellac and heated to harden, then the plate is ready to be taken home. The resulting image is a one-of-a-kind modern heirloom.

June’s Collection

Check out this article on Billy Penn by Space 1026er June Armstrong!

The glint of foil and brightly colored packaging stands out among the street gunk one normally encounters along the sidewalks and gutters of Philadelphia.

It’s a relatively new kind of litter for the city: disposable bags for holding pocket-sized amounts of CBD gummies.

Just as craft beer companies make a lot of effort to create unique identities through label design, weed packaging now must stand out. Medical marijuana dispensaries and boutiques have begun to proliferate around the region, carrying products that cater to a variety of personalities and tastes.

These heavily branded, single-use containers inevitably end up left behind wherever people congregate for fun. The odor-proofing baked into the bags makes them durable, able to withstand rain or dirt.

Once you start noticing them, you’ll see them in nearly every neighborhood in Philadelphia.

Many of the pocket-sized bags come from growers on the West Coast, where cannabis is legal, and weed is grown by increasingly professional enterprises. It’s a competitive market, and consistent design and layout can help differentiate one brand from another.
