A few months ago the infamous Damon Dash started making some serious moves. His new space DD172 has become a center cooking up some catastrophic cultural goods. When Mos Def was “chilling” one night with some serious folk the place was deemed the “24 Hour Karate School.” Since then there has been some serious hype bubbling around the space, the gallery, venue, and the much anticipated mixtape. Check out all the moves being made here at DD’s Creative Control. Hip Hop is still very much alive ladies and gentlemen. Support your local Karate Dojo. Start chopping.

Spacebuster by Raumlabor “Spacebuster is a mobile inflatable structure – a portable, expandable pavilion – that is designed to transform public spaces of all kinds into points for community gathering. A new iteration of a past Raumlabor project, the K¸chenmonument (presented in Europe in 2006-8), the Spacebuster will make its first appearance in the US this evening and will travel throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn for 10 consecutive evenings hosting various community events.” We missed one chance, but still there are five more events in New York until April 26.

One of the Method SF visual designers sent this out today, so Jay and LA, and I’m sure quite a few more of you have already seen this. I thought it was worth sharing with everyone else who hasn’t checked it out. It’s the new Identity and Branding system for the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) here in New York, created by Michael Bierut/Pentagram.
