The police I grew up with involved illustrations of police in my grade school textbooks rescuing kittens, directing traffic, being in general beneficial support persons for our wider society. In my community, across the continent, I suspect there are still representatives of these police. What images I mostly see today though are of a militarized force sent out to confront some mass at demonstration. I still prefer the cat rescuer illustrations. PIECE 1) A Cultural Bygone. Wood, badge, stuffed cat. PIECE 2) Traffic Duty. Cardboard shipping tubes, wood, badge. – JM
We held our annual “Design Our Business Card” contest and we’re proud to share this year’s winning design. The artists were some Australian orphans. For their winning entry, they hired a professional photographer to capture them illegally posting an original Joe Moma Unfoldable in a Sydney, Australia strip mall. Along with having their photograph on our business card this year, they also received $10 USD and a certificate. Please join us in congratulating them!
3 unfoldable Diego’s. Going with us to Detroit. We’re bringing and leaving 21 unfoldables in all. I hope people who get the unfoldables will be inspired to hang, photograph, and email. The unfoldables break bread at the table of modern art. – JM
