  1. What if p2p culture was equal. What if these sites had been designed to for girls? The goal of GIRLS vs _root is to present an experience on websites typically dominated by male contributors. Currently the add-on works by replacing every username on sites such as github.com with a female username (example: Sarah212) and female avatar. Additionally, Pirate Bay becomes 'Princess Bay" and the typical breast laden-porn ads while searching are replaced ads for 'David Beckham for H&M'. To contribute code visit: github.com/wheresaddie

  2. For this project I was invited to create 8 second videos that would appear among advertising on a giant screen in Toronto. Working on a giant screen that distributes advertising presented some ethical challenges – I've been vocal about being against these kinds of screens in public spaces. But what an opportunity! So I tried to figure out how, in 8 seconds, I could get people to stop looking at the ads.

    Each of the videos begins with the words "CLOSE YOUR EYES" and then a short statement:

    IMAGINE THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE
    FEEL EVERY MOLECULE IN YOUR BODY RAPIDLY VIBRATING

    The piece earnestly asks people to stop looking, pull back, see a larger picture, and imagine impossible things. While it's absurd to ask for such things on a giant billboard in the middle of the city, I ask anyway. It's awkward and out of place, and perhaps a chuckle relieves some anxiety, but the idea lingers and the request remains: "will you close your eyes and imagine?"
