Mesoamerica Resiste (outside) by the Beehive Collective

Yesterday I have the privilege of attending one of the Beehive Collective’s touring workshops for their gushingly beautiful and incredibly detailed work ¡Mesoamérica Resiste! which illustrates many of the issues at play in the Plan Pueblo Panama (P.P.P.) or Mesoamerican Integration and Development Project.  The collective put all of their resources to work to craft the piece including numerous illustrators, scientists, and contributions from local people throughout the area affected by the PPP. Two women, Meg and Mandy, toured with the piece and gave thorough explanations of the many themes, metaphors, and assertions of the work. You can learn more about the Beehive Collective and their touring schedule by visiting their site and I strongly encourage that you do.

These are some Halloween decorations that Jasmine and I made today at Wonder Root. They’ll be on display presumably until Halloween, but there’s two Halloween parties planned there this week and the party hosts may choose to discard these decorations we toiled over today. Above is a tribute to Lou Reed. After making all the pumpkins, I really was in the mood for a banana.

Jasmine made this bat, but I made all the other decorations. The whole project rests however upon her having some candy in her car, which ignited the fire and keeps it burning deep, deep into the future.

Here’s a Frankenstein made from construction paper and a little bit of duct tape.

Classic Jack-o-lantern, loosely based on Pontius Pilate.

The Boo and Happy Halloweeen are also made from construction paper, as is the blood. Fair warning to you vampires- you cannot survive on construction paper blood.

This is where our little Halloween project began- some candy, a bowl, and a dream featuring four deadly handsome pumpkins inspired by the Pringles guy, Kool-Aid Man, and a panda.
