The Balls Suit Was Shortlisted!

Very Exciting News!
Two years ago my Danish buddy Learke and I set out to create a suit: A beaded, braided, balls suit. Little did we know what journey this magical suit of balls would take us on. I was informed last week that the video was shortlisted for Youtube/Play a Biennial of creative videos in collaboration with Youtube, Google, and Guggenheim, New York. 23,000 videos were submitted from 91 countries and our video made the top 125. Now a special jury is currently deciding which 20 videos will make it to the Guggenheim in October for a special celebration. Lets hope that balls suit journey continues to New York!

Strech Collection

I came across these chairs and thought they were another great example of "the common wound" (like found) about how often creative friends will be working on projects and ideas without each other in their studios perhaps years or oceans apart and how we are all working and thinking in similar languages and playing fields. I was so happy to see these are by a friend from RISD, Jessica Carnevale, at Carnevale Studios. You can currently see Carnevale Studios at ICFF 2010 in NYC.


Good Times

A little shout out to Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski. I really like what they both are wearing and the set behind them. Made me a bit nostalgic when I found these, boy did I love Saved by the Bell growing up.





Glitter Trail at the 2010 Rainbow Gathering..

The awesome picture of the northern lights tipis (obviously) inspires thoughts of the Rainbow Gathering.. since it will be in the northeast/east this summer (rumors of various eastern states have been floating, most recently I've heard Tennessee!!), it will be convenient for a lot of you! and others should make it convenient. I felt a little twinkle of The Glitter Tribe presence there.. lets make it happen!

Here are some moments from last year's gathering in New Mexico:

The Rainbow Gathering (for me) is a wonderful experiential example of the new earth paradigm we are transitioning into.. Lets make the future part of the now, while incorporating great ideas from the past. It is held in a different national forest each summer, the climax of the gathering is always July 4th, although many people are there for weeks or months before that. The Gathering is open to anyone and everyone, the motto being: Welcome Home. welcomehome.org is the (un)official website of the Gathering. The Gathering feels a lot like a city of tribes and families. There are many camps and kitchens and the entire operation functions through service, loving, giving, and trade (without money).

Welcome Home.

Northern Lights TIPI of LOVE!!!

Thank you GLITTER GODDESS Jaime Currier for this amazing gift!
Friends and followers of The Glitter Trail are always welcome to email us images and suggestions for posts. (sorry it took me a while to get this one posted!)

Collaborating with this awesome group of talented and conscious designers was truly an amazing and inspiring experience! (my contributions are the necklaces, with the exception of one, which was made by the talented girls at Eko-Lab)

artist cao fei: avatars as experiential art

I have been thinking a lot lately about reality creation, and the various expressers (artists, writers, scientists, creators of all kinds) who work with that big idea. Cao Fei's conclusion to her starting question about avatar interaction is that the created reality (in this case the virtual reality of 2nd life) ultimately presents the same problems as our reality does. I am interested in finding realities that ultimately free us from our perceived limitations, thus allowing our reality to expand into places we currently consider 'impossible.'

Please comment and share any links or examples of reality creators you admire.. more from me coming soon!

Please also check out the site for the PBS program Art:21 there is so much great stuff on there, including videos of entire episodes. You can also stream episodes from older seasons on Netflix.

Sparkle On.
