Hacking Laundry

Originally uploaded by Adam J. O'Donnell.
An old friend, David Munson (pictured), repurposed a bunch of my old hacker t-shirts for a piece of art he has titled "Hacker Laundry". I think his design choices are pretty compelling, especially the alligator clips that run from the shirts to the overhead wires. While their functional purpose is to supply power to LEDs epoxied onto the back of the shirt-boards, they serve to compliment the underlying aesthetic of rapid development and, well, "hacked-up" means by which we developed technology.


Critique aside, the piece is beautiful and looks awesome on our wall, and it will preserve something that was a part of me and I was a part of far longer than I had ever hoped.
