Brian Beasley is a retired high school woodwork teacher from Junee. In this video he sings and makes a table/stool, though not at the same time.
Brian believes that using older woodwork techniques, relying on physical strength and re-purposed wood is more emotionally satisfying that using machinery to produce furniture.

The Queens Kickshaw, an introduction to ecological and social design thinking. The project is a gut renovation of a t-shirt shop converted into a specialty coffee, craft beer, gourmet grilled cheese restaurant in Astoria, Queens, NY. It was a collaborative project between EcoSystems Brand and the owners Benjamin Sandler and Jennifer Lim. It was was created through a “design on the fly” scenario, backed by an interaction design research methodology, and human factors study. We created every aspect (minus the equipment) from reclaimed and repurposed objects and materials. Some of the furniture intentionally causes social moments between the employees and the patrons, and between patrons themselves.

As the shadow of night falls across the American West a lone man begins his work. Far from the confines, calamity, and culture of society, multimedia artist and storyteller Jeff Frost sifts through the visual dregs of places and people who once were.
Combining still and time-lapse photography with motion, music, and art, Frost reveals a world rarely seen. Rooted in science and the exploration of space, Frost’s work explodes with light, fire, and sound, utilizing 2D and 3D perspective, leading the viewer on a unique visual journey through worlds both real and imagined.

"Frost's video footage of the desert and abandoned houses in the American Southwest is certainly stunning in its own right, but it was his incorporation of three perspective-bending optical illusions — and his use of time-lapse as a medium to expose the reality behind those illusions — that really sold us."
"...a glimpse of a world without limits."
- Brooklyn Street Art, Steven P. Harrington

The American Dream video is based on the fear of success, this thought is extremely powerful, fear has the ability to cripple us from pursuing our dreams. The moment I embraced my dreams it was as if the universe had drawn people to help us and share their stories. Our goal is to tell the stories of the people who live in America. Your support is the driving force behind our project. We could not have done this without you. We have made it this far because you shared and supported us through our social networking sites. We were able to connect with the people in this film because of the internet. Every time you share or like this project it brings us one step closer to photographing your town, people you know, possibly even you.
