Over the years, we have worked with Tod Seelie on a few projects, and one of the reason we have worked with him and assigned him some open-ended projects is that we know that he sees the world differently then most. That he has a camera is of benefit to all of us as both artists, writers, or people with interest in the cracks between popular culture and underground culture, and their meeting points. That connection is the subject of Tod's new book, "Bright Nights: Photographs of Another New York."

Swoon has always been one of our favorite artists, especially when it comes to her public art projects and site-specific works, and now she needs your/our help. This is the lowdown: Two years ago New Orleans Airlift and the artist Swoon launched the Kickstarter campaign that funded The Music Box, their prototype for an ongoing musical architecture project they call Dithyrambalina. Now, with the Music Box closed, they want to evolve the project: what was once going to be a single musical house designed by Swoon and brought to life by collaborating artists has turned into an even bigger dream—an evolving musical village created by many, many more hands, ideas, and influences.
