Fixing A Hole: Dispatchers Worldwide Hits Beverly
|Dispatchers Worldwide at Mingo Gallery and Frame, Beverly MA|

In addition to adding PCBs to Beverly structures, I designed some vinyl "brick" stickers to build with. These were made in Adobe Illustrator and printed in 8 colors - special thanks to Andy Bablo at Steez Mini Mag for printing these up. It's not exactly "patching" but it was equally colorful, interactive and beautifying. See my initial trial run in a previous blog entry.

17 Cox's current exhibition,"Start Over", is a cross-section of 'revisionists': people whose occupation requires a constant striking and revising, and features Boston area artists, Fish McGill, Dave Tolmie and Anthony Montouri. Artists, urban planners and gamers, to name but a few, are required to build, debuild and rebuild as they adapt to new problems. Dispatchwork actually draws attention to the initial problem, but in a beautiful way. For the exhibition, Anthony Montuori designed impossible video games: in "Debtris" and "Adventures of Sisyphus", winning is temporary and purpose is monotonous. In addition to four of Montouri's arcade style video games, artists Fish McGill and Dave Tolmie completed a collaborative two story mural inside the 17 Cox Gallery, continually editing each other out and "starting over".
