        This is an art installation + clothes drive designed by Tex Jernigan & Dominique Karwoski. We constructed a heart out of used clothing donated by people throughout the Mid-City and Greater New Orleans community. All in all we started with three bags of clothing, and ended up with eleven 60-Gallon bags of clothing. The clothes will go those who need them at shelters in New Orleans. This project would not have been possible without the help of Bonnie Garrigan, Warren Pope in Mid City, and Alan Joseph Williams of Civic Center & Neighborland. Read more and see the individual pictures at http://texs.org/heart The video is made up of nearly 1,000 photos, paced at 6 frames per second. The camera was set on a time-lapse intervalometer using Magic Lantern's T2i hack.

          • We want more food trucks in New Orleans!

            We want more food trucks in New Orleans! But that won't happen with current city laws. The codes governing are out-dated and overly restrictive. Let's agree to change the laws, so that they encourage new business, benefit neighborhoods, and build the strength of our city's restaurant industry. Food trucks are an important source of economic opportunity for entrepreneurs of all types. They can also enhance the culinary culture of our city, enliven streets, and provide food options in underserved areas---if we let them. Currently, the out-of-date, poorly understood, and restrictive laws regulating food trucks prevent the practice from growing. Join us in our effort to create a broad community coalition in support of reform. Not only are we working to improve unjust and inefficient laws, but we are sharing what we learn about advocating for change along the way. It is our hope that we can create a valuable resource for future efforts to make New Orleans a better place. This petition is aimed at growing support for our cause in principle. With the petition in hand, we will work transparently to develop and negotiate specific changes to the city code. Sincerely, The New Orleans Food Truck Coalition
