hands on by alissa walker
if you’re in the business of design, or art, or culture, or urban living, or just generally going outside, you should really be reading alissa walker, which is getting increasingly harder to do, since she’s writing for so many amazing publications these days. but hey, you can start by simply reading her blog. she just wrote up a workshop she attended at machine project, a fantastically experiential art space in echo park. i often take it for granted because they’re so close and always doing so many great things, i’ve become spoiled. walker points out a feeling i share about why they’re so great: you get to experience the making of art, play and explore, and get involved in the art experience, which is a stark contrast to a view-only gallery experience.
