My new art project calls for 115,000 all seeing eyes, cut individually with a razor blade, from one dollar bills. Three years later, I am almost done.

Back in October of 2012, the people at CNN took it upon themselves to remedy the problem of low voter turnout by launching their “Change The List” campaign. The initiative noted the fact that the state of Hawaii had the lowest voter turnout during the 2008 election and set out to fix it. CNN asked people to tweet encouragements at Hawaiian voters, do stuff with Instagram and leave comments on YouTube, all in an effort to ‘convince’ random people in Hawaii to go vote.

Today, Hawaii proudly stands in 49th place in voter turnout. When CNN launched its campaign, West Virginia was 49th, so it makes sense that moving Hawaii out of that spot would, in all likelihood, drop the Mountain State into last place.

More than 32K votes in all. So cool.

America’s widening gap between the rich and poor — and this country’s fast-disappearing sense of security and progress and economic stability — is so far the top pick among the 20 subjects I presented as part of a new project called Change the List. “Who cares about the economy?” - John Sutter/ CNN (via cnnchangethelist)

When people hear John Mark Nelson’s music for the first time, there’s often a sense of disbelief. With arrangements that recall the work of veteran songwriters, the 19-year-old Minnetonka, Minn., native has been recording sophisticated compositions since he was 14.

Watch him and his cadre of teenage friends make their radio debut on Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current, as they perform the song “Reminisce.”
