Al Jazeera America interviewed Heather and I about our Staten Island Turkey Park project for this Thanksgiving day puff piece on Staten Island’s wild turkey colony. Big shoutout to everyone who worked on this project (Heather Velez, Crys Moore, Tak Cheung and Yoonjo Choi) and respect to the fallen turkeys.

Living Alone 7"
In a time of prolific online espionage, crackdowns on file-sharing, and a growing concern for the 3D printing of illegal items and copyright protected artefacts, Disarming Corruptor by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez is a free software application that helps people to circumvent these issues. Inspired by encryption rotor machines such as the infamous Enigma Machine, the application runs an algorithm that is used to both corrupt STL files into a visually-illegible state by glitching and rotating the 3D mesh, and to allow a recipient to reverse the effect to restore it back to its original form. The file recipient would need both the application and the unique seven digit settings used by the sender, entering the incorrect settings would only damage the file further.
Fair use forever.
