“Taylor Swift” Would Like to Remind You to Vote Today

Although it didn’t make an appearance at our Halloween Party, The Red and Blue Tour made its debut further north in Manhattan last month. There, it serenaded the visitors of a haunted art house’s bathroom with red and blue light, offered politicized candy and played a mixtape which began with some pontifications on the impact of Taylor Swift’s recent Instagram post increasing voter registration in Tennessee, followed by a curated playlist of her best hits.

The installation, built into a refurbished voting booth, was set up with a laptop running Ubuntu and Firefox as a kiosk which allowed partygoers to register to vote on the spot* using TurboVote, a website you can still use to register to vote—it’s never too early for 2020! If you’re already registered to vote in New York City but would like to figure out where your poll site is though, check out the NYC Board of Elections’s Poll Site Locator.

Tails Surveillance Sanitizer

If anyone’s been at the space in the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed me peeling labels off tiny sanitizer bottles and measuring the insides of their caps with calipers while tweaking settings in OpenSCAD. This is for a project I’ll be bringing to the Internet Yami-Ichi this Saturday, September 12th at Knockdown Center. Aside from including generic aloe-vera hand sanitizer, “hidden” within the each cap is an 8GB USB drive pre-loaded with the Tails Live OS, 1.5.1 (sticker was sent to the printer before the new release), which you can boot into from most computers that allow booting from USB drives.

Tails is maintained by a team of really awesome folks across the world who are working in the Laura-Poitras-level edge cases of severe state surveillance that no one else will invest time or money into. In making a physical manifestation with a deliberate design, I want to commemorate what they do and bring their work to the attention of new audiences, in a similar vein as one of my projects last year. Tails also depends in part from donations from its users, so I’ll be pledging 25% of each sale at the Internet Yami-Ichi directly to the Tails project.

There’s only 20 bottles for sale, so stop by Knockdown Center on Caturday to get yours before they sell out!

The sixth annual NYC Resistor Interactive Show is coming up this Caturday at 8pm. We have an overly generous baker’s dozen artists building a show fit for both organic and robotic party goers. We mentioned a few in our previous post, and here are a few more…
