Sukkah City FIlM
Sukkah City, his behind the scenes film about the architecture competition of the same name, in which artists re-imagined the sukkah archetype, and the 12 winning structures were displayed in Union Square in New York City. Pictured above is one of the winning structures. Look closely at the white sign above and to the left of the black hatted sukkah goer. "Out of GAS Need HElP" is just one of the many pleas for gas, and HElP, featured in this collage of cardboard calling cards. Look for Hutt's film in spring 2013.

Open Source GlYPHS
reported on BoingBoing, today Adobe announced the release of Source Sans Pro, a new set of Open Source monospaced fonts for coders. The font will be especially useful for us folks who get confused between I, 1, and l. Since you're probably not using Source Sans Pro to view this page, I'll translate those confusing characters: uppercase i, the number one, and a lowercase L.

this guy put some effort into correcting an obviously former lowercase L by squeezing a little uppercase action into ISlAM. If he can do it, despite his Engrish, and in the wake of an attack on the US Embassy in Libya, there's no excuse why we can't, too.

FAllEN PRiNCESS through a rolled up bill. While the coke is apparently just a little Sweet 'n Low, the double lowercase L's in FAllEN have soured my appreciation for this particular artwork. But if the uppercase extension of the L's were intentional—perhaps as was part of a formerly uppercase i in PRiNCESS—in a monogrammatic tribute to the artist's muse, Lindsay Lohan, I'd say that was pretty creative.
