PACIFIC FELT FACTORY NEWSLETTER / JULY 2017
SAVE THE INTERNET!
On July 12, PFF's Media Alliance participated in a Nationwide Day of Action to preserve "net neutrality." Net neutrality is a government policy that prevents the big cable companies from forcing websites to censor content, slow down your service, or charge extra fees.

It's not too late to voice your support to save the Internet! The commenting period on the Federal Communications Commission's attempt to eliminate net neutrality ends on July 17th.

To have your website -- or even your Facebook and Twitter profiles -- participate, click here to join other artists, entrepreneurs, small businesses, nonprofits, and some of the biggest tech companies in the country in declaring that an open Internet is the only Internet we want.

This July, Beth Davila Waldman is hosting a studio residency for the artistic collaboration Built Environments with Tucson-based artist Jenny Day. Having met in New Orleans as participating artists at the NO DEAD ARTISTS exhibition at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, they launched the project with the website www.builtenvironment.co.

Since meeting, the two artists have infused their artistic processes with exchanged materials, digital communication, and photo shoots. During this residency, they will execute large-scale panels, fiber work, and review twelve completed mixed media works on panel. The collaboration merges their interests in landscape of past and present and man-made constructions that inform our current urban context.

Rodney Ewing is participating in a one month artist residency at HANGAR in Lisbon, Portugal. The residency runs July 1 to July 31, 2017. He will be working on his Longitude and Latitude series that creates landscapes of tumultuous historical events at the intersection of memory and geography.
Today, the line between work and life has never been so blurred. Work environments are increasingly inspired by the domestic realm—from kitchens to dining areas to living rooms. These "brick-wall tech" environments have brought home to work, increasing its comfort as well as productivity.

At the same time, the domestic realm is increasingly a location for new forms of labor that can be spatially distributed yet virtually connected. More people now work from home than ever before, which has also enabled a new nomadicism.

Co-curated by Neeraj Bhatia and Christoph Hesse, the Ways of Life exhibition is an investigation into the new condition of work­ing in close proximity to nature. Emerging architectural offices from around the globe have been asked to develop a prototype dwelling that immerses work in nature.

The projects were presented at EXPERIMENTA URBANA, a co-event with documenta14 in Kassel, Germany, on July 5, 2017. Selected designs will begin construction starting March 2018.
