There are 21.5 years worth of flyers, art by members past and present, pieces from past shows, a zine library ! So much to look at and take in. AND, if that wasn’t enough, we are very excited to ALSO be hosting :

FLEEGIX (2019, dir. by Matthew Thurber)

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1209343473/fleegix

Shot on 16mm film, Matthew Thurber’s FLEEGIX is a science-fiction film set on Earth, although some of the population have become convinced that they are in fact living on the planet Mars.
FLEEGIX includes both live action, stop motion and hand drawn animated segments. The appearance of animation in the narrative is to illustrate propaganda, such as depictions of newsworthy events on Mars. This film is an organism that grows and continues to develop a web of connected motifs and ideas. FLEEGIX is constructed through the accumulation of short scenes that echo and lead into each other, making connections across time and space. It is a a “Fairy story” whose construction resembles a role-playing game, rather than a simulation of standard motion picture narrative. At the heart of the film is the question as to how Fleegix, a beverage enjoyed by Martians, is manufactured. The film details further conflict among New York Martians who express themselves in animated movement, and the Hand Shadow Punks of Baltimore, who represent a pre-cinematic faction. The film proposes various absurd answers to this question, and the dispute takes on symbolic and mythological proportions.

Destroy Content Desert – Long Live Content Desert

Content Desert is a post-internet object, a journey through graphic refuse amassed and extruded over several stylized chapters. The 450-plus pages of Content Desert anachronously proceed from it’s obnoxious tag line of “1,000,0000 years of broken graphics… load more, know less”.

*Skate Park(ing) Day 2016

Park(ing) Day 2016 Space 1026

This past Friday the 16th we had the pleasure of participating in Philadelphia’s 8th annual Park(ing) Day, presented by The Center for Architecture. The concept of the citywide event is to turn inactive vehicle parking into vibrant street-side park space, if only for a day.

We figured what better way to do so than to build the world’s smallest skate park. James Bonney and Kees Holterman designed and built the installation at break neck intensity over the course of two weeks. Many friends also lent a hand with painting and moving the dang ramps from the studio to the street. Thanks pals!

Also, a BIG thanks to Franklin’s Paine Skatepark Fund and Spectrum Skateboard Co. for extra support!
