"Textaport Vending Machine," by PiSplice
PiSplice is a group of individuals who acknowledge (humbly) that our vast individual knowledge, within the context of the world around us is, in actuality, quite minute and not powerful enough to address the current state of the world effectively. However, we understand that when we learn to cooperate to the degree that we have learned to compete we are presented with opportunities to overcome ideological limitations. Through an inclusive philosophy that invites both viewer and artist to collaborate through anonymity we hope to urge the continual evolution that we believe is taking place in the physical environment to offer a positive impact on the world.
