Craft & Design Photography & Video

A series of photos by James D. Griffioen, on the Planet Mag website, show the “greening” of Motor City, what used to be one of the country’s biggest production centers. In the light of the Moss Graffiti tutorial and the grassy 3D painting piece we saw in the last couple of weeks, this struck me as a stunning (albeit sad in a sense) example of the natural incarnation of the same. I love how the subhead on this post is “Feral Houses in the Motor City.” My favorite is this building below. I can’t help but to wonder what it will look like in a couple of months.


I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
