Sign Painters

Book. Faythe Levine, Sam Macon. Published by Princeton Architectural Press.

There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our visual landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation, and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. Sign Painters, the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States. With a foreword by legendary artist (and former sign painter) Ed Ruscha, this vibrant book profiles sign painters young and old, from the new vanguard working solo to collaborative shops such as San Francisco's New Bohemia Signs and New York's Colossal Media's Sky High Murals.

Big Box Reuse

Book. Edited by Julia Christensen, published by MIT Press. 2008.

America is becoming a landscape of big boxes connected by highways, but when a big box store upsizes to an even bigger box “supercenter” down the road, it leaves behind more than the vacant shell of a retail operation; it leaves behind a changed landscape that can’t be changed back. Artist and writer Julia Christensen crisscrossed America identifying ten former big box stores that have been repurposed by the communities around them then photographed, videotaped, and interviewed the people involved with the transformations.

Massachussets and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. The manufacturing of
capacitors was once the primary use of this factory-turned-museum, but
the work has since moved to the Maquiladoras of post-NAFTA US/Mexico
border, where it is still primarily conducted by women.

DVD. By The Yes Men and Kurt Engfehr.

A wickedly fun skewering of corporate greed, THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD is the true story of two conscientious mischief-makers who pose as the representatives of companies they despise.

The Yes Men: Video RTMark: Bringing IT to YOU!

Video. By RTMark (proto-Yes Men)

Corporations are persons, and have been for over a century. Since 1886, when the U.S. Supreme Court gave them full constitutional rights, corporations have used their wealth and power to subvert democracy and its processes. Now, with this video, you can learn how the same inalienable rights that corporations have stolen over the years are used by ®TMark... to bring anti-corporate sabotage into the public marketplace. See this video and find out more about the folks who sponsored The Barbie Liberation Organization, Deconstructing Beck, GWbush.com, the battle over etoy.com and many other creative acts of anti-corporate sabotage.

The Yes Men: Video The Horribly Stupid Stunt (Which Has Resulted in His Untimely Death)

Video. By The Yes Men.

“Check out this notorious real-life political prank foisted upon the WTO by a mysterious group of anonymous hoaxsters known as The Yes Men, who used the fake GATT.org cite to pose as WTO representatives and actually spoke at an international trade conference, with hilarious results. "Come join The Yes Men as they deliver a deathly horrible lecture to a group of high-powered lawyers, who think they are listening to the World Trade Organization. The lawyers' shocking response drives The Yes Men to the depths of depravity, with stupid results." The Yes Men serve us well as a group of imposters who will "use any means necessary to agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, ask questions, and then smuggle our the stories of their undercover escapades to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business."

The Yes Men Shirt with Patch

Shirt. Various sizes, styles, colors. These thrift-store shirts have yellow Yes Men patches (with red silkscreened text) sewn on them.

If you buy one of these special edition shirts, you are helping The Yes Men, and fighting product "dumping" in the developing world! The Yes Men bought used T's which were destined to be shipped to poor countries, where they would have been distributed at rock-bottom prices, helping kill indigenous clothing industries. So, they printed patches, sewed them over the old logo- and Voila! You not only get a shirt, you help save the world - just a wee bit. **Every shirt is different! Shirts pictured are examples, the shirt you order may be a different color and may or may not have stains or holes. Sizes are approximate.
