Click, Print, Gun: The Inside Story of the 3D-Printed Gun Movement

  Being a 3D-printing novice, I was once somewhat skeptical of the promise behind what’s being billed as a truly game-changing technology. I saw Makerbot CEO Bre Pettis on the cover of Wired in late September, and while the novelty of the process incited wonder in my inner 10-year-old, I...

The Gut-Wrenching Saga of Shoenice

This was made for the VICE Original Youtube Series My Life Online. Original Text by Dan Stuckey. _ Bottles of cleaning fluid and painter’s caulk usually have their own fair share of fatal warning stickers, which is why I’ve never been to the ER for an eating-related stunt. But that...

The Taxidermy Babe

The Taxidermy Babe – VICE YOUTUBE – Fringes I have never been much for hunting. It seemed a bit too callous to go to the woods just to trap a living, breathing animal, especially for art. And then I met Divya. Divya is an artist, designer and taxidermist living in...
