bre and brooklyn hillary culture hack nyc

Tagged:  •    •    •    •    •    •  

right at the end of last last year, i was randomly introduced to an unbelievable personality - Bre Pettis. as a former teacher, Bre is known for his delightful humor, ability to build things, and wacky antics. sure enough, Bre arrived here in nyc refusing to deal with another seattle winter, yet only experience new york city for a month. as is the story with many who come to "visit" new york, once Bre started exploring... well, needless to say he's coming back in three weeks!

over the weekend, Bre and Brooklyn Hillary did a bit of culture hacking. check out Charles' blip clip. using the rastorbator software, they blew up self portraits and took them around town. if you're in the area of 11 spring street, check out their work! in the meantime, Brooklyn Hillary is raising money to purchase a new camera. Check out her chipin campaign, and help a fellow brooklynite purchase a new camera.

Hey...thanks so much for the menrion!

Isn't Bre inspiring?

When we were postering the city with our faces, we ran into Matt Semel, who asked Bre "Do you always do fun things like this?" Bre's answer? A simple "Yes".

Then Matt turned to me and said "You?" I said "Yes, since I met Bre."

Update on 11 Spring Street:
Bre is gone. I am still there, but tattered and torn and only half stuck to the wall. I'm not upset about this, though...the wall is constantly changing. And the experience was unforgettable.

Good luck with your fundraising!

Nice report on the goings on of Bre and Hilary in NYC.
