Station to Station: Shots from the rails

Station to Station: Shots from the rails

We posted about Station to Station, a public art project made possible by Levi's, a few months back and we're excited to follow up with some amazing imagery from the journey. Over the course of three weeks in September, a train traveled from the Atlantic to Pacific, making nine stops across the country. It was an epic undertaking aimed at connecting leading and upcoming figures from the worlds of art, music, food, literature and film in creative collaboration. Funds raised through ticket sales and donations went on to support non-traditional programming at nine partner museums around the country. This once in a lifetime expedition provided breathtaking photographic moments along some of the countries most famed railways and diverse landscapes. Peek this gallery to catch a glimpse of some of my favorite shots from the train.

The Never-Ending Adventures of Abduzeedo and Amlight

Your favorite cousins are together again and this time the road leads west! Whip out those calendars and get these dates down. From October 16th to 20th, Fabio will be roaming the streets of the city that never sleeps. Show him a good time, New York! Then from October 21st to November 2nd we will be in sunny California - from Los Angeles to San Francisco and everywhere in between! Oh and don't worry, we haven't forgotten about you, Sin City… We will also be in Las Vegas sometime between October 21st and November 2nd. Yep, that's right, folks, our first non-summer adventure. We're so excited that we want to have you all along for the ride! We propose an Abduzeedo meet-up in Los Angeles, California, date still undecided, but you're all invited! It will probably be on a weekend, so for those of you who don't live in California… perfect excuse for a roadtrip! We want all of you guys to come out and hang out with us. Not only in LA, but also in anywhere and everywhere we'll be around! This is actually one very rare occasion since almost the whole team will be there and we're never in the same country at the same time, so this is your chance to get acquainted with us - have some beers, share some laughs, and talk about everything from design to the weather! We will announce the official date of the meet-up and exactly when we'll be in what city on twitter so follow me (@amlight), @abduzeedo, @gismullr, and @eduardosasso to make sure you don't miss out! Hope to see you guys soon! :D But of course this wouldn't be Abduzeedo without some images to inspire your day, so here comes a collection of photographs of California that we can't wait to experience close up! army.arch Ma?

The Adventures of Abduzeedo and Amlight

These past two months, my cousin Fabio (abduzeedo) has been hanging out with me here in Raleigh, North Carolina. Sunday at 3:30 am he returned to Brazil leaving me here with memories from our wonderful summer. HOLD! You should really listen to this song while you read this post! It will enhance the experience. ;) I thought it would be cool to share with you guys a little bit of our adventures in America so you can see what we got up to and give you a taste of what our lives are like. Everytime Fabio said something stupid I'd write it down, so what better way to show you what our lives are like than to share with you some of the funniest quotes from the man himself. Oh, and I promise he's not as disgusting and mean as he sounds ;) Fabio: I'd give anything to take a shit right now. Fabio: Oohh, they left the virgin margarita.. let's get drunk! Fabio: Your birthday is 27... July... June! Amanda: You said July.... Fabio: That's because my English sucks F: I'm gonna fart really loud now. That deserves a quote. F: If I knew English my jokes would make so much more sense F: For the one year daily inspiration we're gonna post 365 images... it's gonna crash computers all over the world..... haaaaa I'm so diabolical F: I'm a ninja F: Sunny D is good but it gave me heartburn... more like hell in my heart. Like heartburn in my ass. Don't quote that. A: He's Jewish F: Marry him. Don't marry because of love, marry for money. Money is more romantic. A: He used to do a lot of drugs... F: And? F: I'm like a machine of beautiful quotes F: That was too much for your little peanut brain F: Nothing like some good old KFC fried in the oil of death. F: I'm like an oyster of quotes... pearls after pearls F: Your taste in men is weird. A: My taste? Your taste is anything living. F: That's a good definition of my taste. You nailed it. I have an appreciation for all female forms in the world. The least I can do is love them all. F: Not even the greatest chefs in the world would be able to assemble such a beautiful gnocci mountain F: If there's something I can cook it's greasy sauce. Delicious greasy sauce might I add. F: You know, people call me Mano because my retarded brother couldn't say Fabio. How bad is that? we went on a roadtrip first stop: wawa eventually we made it to philadelphia and then new york we relaxed a bit and then hit up the streets of brooklyn we got blisters from walking so much so we had a drink ;) then we went to dc walked up to lincoln's memorial goofed around came back to raleigh and went to ihop made key lime pie had lots of barbecues and drank way too much caipirinha actually this is what our fridge looked like most of the time we also kept making the same facial expressions without realizing we watched the fireworks on the 4th at a lake it was nice fabio dropped his lens in that lake actually we built ikea furniture (took us a couple days haha) and we made our own 3d glasses ...which we used to look at dinosaurs :) he got me a palm pre (thanks, cuz! :D) we compared phones... and feet? one day we woke up and bought a dozen donuts another day we made grilled banana s'mores :D we had a garage sale but he kept playing on his phone we went to outback! we goofed around in stores and we painted a blackboard in the kitchen where we drew silly pictures obama came to raleigh the same day we were going to florida. we thought we were gonna miss our flight we didnt... and luckily the flight was empty! he practiced his speech one last time we ate a lot of plane peanuts. can somebody explain to me why plane peanuts are so good? the clouds were awesome that day know what else was awesome? the view from our hotel room we waited for dan denney then we went surfing next day we went to busch gardens and i convinced him to go on the water rides :D his socks got wet... enough goofing off, time for the conference! we met a lot of cool guys then we had to set up took him a while ;) we came back to raleigh and bought gum at the farmers market, oh and fudge! we tested out a new lens for my camera we worked sometimes too.... ;) we saw coldplay! and then drew about it when we got home he decided to shave all his beard off this is where we ran everyday it was nice we went to red robin on his last night we got some really big burgers i got him a balloon! he tied it to my car... we went to walmart where he found a monitor he wanted we wanted to buy these as well (glow in the dark underwear!!)

Banksy tours America

Banksy is in the news again this week. First because he tried to donate a piece of art to the Labour Party in the UK and second because he is currently taking a tour across America spreading his politically-toned outdoor urban art. Banksy tried donating a piece of art to the Labour Party in the UK but unfortunately due to his anonymous identity they couldn't accept it. Read more about it here. Here is the piece that was donated: Banksy is traveling across America right now placing pieces of his graffiti art in cities that have experienced certain problems recently (and in history). On his website you can view his progress. So far he's been to New Orleans and Alabama. Can't wait to see where he goes next. Here are a select few from New Orleans and the last one is from Alabama: partial source: Wooster Collective
