make & vela creations

my good friends josie moores and abe connally wrote an article about sonic fabric, which was published in the latest issue of MAKE magazine (vol. 5) on page 23. what i'm even more excited about, however, is the article that abe and josie wrote about their own project, which appears on page 90. these two are a couple of my heroes...they build windmills from recycled materials, and teach others how to do the same. then they bring their work into communities in northern mexico and set folks up with extremely inexpensive off-the-grid power.

funny how the sonic fabric stuff relies on wind and "puro yonke" (pure junk) too...i can only hope that what i'm doin' brings even a fraction of the good into the world that abe and josie's stuff does.
