Comfort Station

This March, the Post Family will leave the confines of their studio behind to call Logan Square’s Comfort Station home. Looking to the legacy of a “comfort station” as a public place of gathering—an architectural hub within a community that’s free and open to all—they believe this to be the perfect venue to bring their ideals to life.

Rather than mount a physical exhibition, the Post Family is curating a month of programming—a series of workshops, collaborations, performances, discussions and screenings designed to engage and unite the diverse Logan Square community. They will facilitate dialogue between residents old and new: families, professionals, artists, patrons, business owners and beyond. In addition to their own events, they will be partnering with a variety of “Family friends” – including Third Coast Audio Festival, Logan Square International Film Series (Comfort Films), and others – to diversify programming and enrich the level of dialogue throughout the month. Visitors will collaborate, debate, share meals, create artwork, and above all else, engage.

It's been a while, so we really look forward to this series of wonderful events with some of the most talented folks we know in Chicago. To see all of the events check out:

In addition to finding new space Desktime has also built the first tool online to help you manage that extra space allowing you to quickly and simply bill, schedule and manage the space, so all you have to do worry about is building a community and making some extra cash on the side.

Technology transforms our culture, politics and personal lives, but in a slow and subtle way. In our latest exhibition, titled Generat.ion/s, we consider how today's technology might impact tomorrow. Utilizing traditional and contemporary mediums, we trace a history of innovation and peer into its future through the eyes of today's cultural leaders.

We're excited to invite you to join us for the opening reception of our next show on October 12, 2012 from 7:00 - 10:00 pm at The Family Room.

We’re All In This Together

Come check out Matthew Hoffman’s upcoming exhibition at The Coop! “We’re All In This Together” references that (whether we like it or not) we are here in the situation at hand. Instead of disconnected individuals, we have the opportunity to work alongside one another, engage, and create the life (and the resulting community) that we want to see.

The work itself will consist of methodically hand cut wood and paper pieces with action and dialogue inducing statements. The exhibitionwill delve even deeper into interpersonal conversations, continuing the dialogue of creating an ever changing and adapting community.

Eight Chicagoland designers were paired with eight local writers to create collaborative works, with text informing and influencing art and vice versa. The results of this experiment are presented in limited edition poster form, with writing and design back to back.

Writers & Artist include: Patrick Somerville, Claire Zulkey, Ramsin Canon, Kevin Guilfoile, William Shunn, Veronica Bond, Wendy McClure, Scott Smith,  Jesse Hora, Andy Luce, Chad Kouri, Ina Weise, Letterform, Ryan Sievert, Paul Octavious, Kyle Fletcher

Pretty excited about my real life brother's latest and greatest Shiner. The site is an insanely easy to use service that allows you to take your Instagram photos and turn them into lovely ready-to-hang art in just a few clicks.

In a world where the amount of digital photography that's taken every day is staggering the simple act of printing, framing and turn these digital artifacts in to pieces of art that you can hold in touch is pretty wonderful. Hope you enjoy.

Check it out!

Apple Knowledge Navigator

A video that was made for Apple when John Sculley was CEO. An early Siri prototype. It blows my mind how far we've come and how un-Apple this video is.
