Kid Hazo’s “INSECURITY”

August 16, 2015

New installation today from Kid Hazo, titled “INSECURITY,” mocking (in my opinion) our NSA-era surveillance state and inviting pedestrians on Frankford avenue in Fishtown some space for a little unrecorded fun!

And ending at The Heidelberg Project, an open-air “art environment” as it’s described that sits on the east side of Detroit.  Read more…

August 14, 2015

Frankford Crossing

Wrote a little op-ed this week for the AWESOME Philly blog, Plan Philly, about something that’s been kind of pissing me off for a while now: How is there no place to safely or legally cross the street as a pedestrian for a HALF-MILE along Frankford avenue in Fishtown?!

Would love for y’all to read it (click here), and share if you agree!
