Some Thoughts On BRIC, Brooklyn’s Beloved Arts Organization

December 13, 2014

Jordana and I were recently interviewed by Brooklyn Independent Media about BRIC, Brooklyn's beloved non-profit arts organization. For 35 years, BRIC's been driving and reflecting the cultural diversity and creativity of our favorite borough, led by its brilliant visionary, Leslie Schultz. From live music and performing arts (the Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival and BRIClab), to contemporary art exhibitions and programs, to community media programs (Brooklyn Free Speech TV, Brooklyn Independent Media, and Brooklyn Bulletin Board), it's a Brooklyn gem. Here's what we had to say about this special place: 2014 BRIC Gala - Ross Martin & Jordana Martin from Brooklyn Independent Media on Vimeo.


150 People Knitting Boobs

May 16, 2014

It was 9am on a beautiful Friday morning in Brooklyn, four years ago, the first ever Viacommunity Day, a day of service for all employees of our company.  I was walking up to my wife's art studio with several bags of bagels.  She was expecting about 50 people that morning. Neither of us expected our CEO to be among them. But sure enough, there he was.  The first one there.  Boom. And, just like she's done wth hundreds of my colleagues since, there's Jordana, teaching him how to knit. What was she teaching him to knit?  A prosthetic breast for a cancer survivor in need. He was focused, he picked it up quickly, and with that, "Knit-A-Boob" went from a vision in Jordana's mind to a real event, something that has already made a real difference in the lives of so many, and something anybody can do. Today was Jordana's fourth annual "Knit-A-Boob" -- now a full day event, sponsored by Viacom, Oak Knit Studio, Textile Arts Center (where Jordana also serves as board president) and Hundreds of new and experienced knitters joined together to learn about breast cancer prevention, while knitting hand-dyed cashmere prosthetics for women who have lost their breasts. "Knit-A-Boob" has inspired so many others to act.  Last year, for example, Camila Alves and CAA hosted a Knit-A-Boob event in Los Angeles. Jordana and were there, teaching 75 Latina highschoolers to knit and to keep themselves healthy. Dozens of similar events have popped up across the country. It's a special thing -- for Viacom, for Jordana and for me, her husband, watching her gather a community of knitters to help teach and encourage our volunteers to produce these beautiful, personal objects.  Here's how it works: How a Boob is Made from Jordana Munk Martin on Vimeo. And here's Jordana, welcoming all the volunteers to the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, this morning: Today, 150 people completed 25 new pairs of knitted boobs. Over the next month, Jordana and her team of knitters will complete any unfinished sets and add them to the pile.

An Urban Arts Project I Hope You’ll Consider

June 10, 2013 — 0

The Textile Arts Center's Artists In Residence Program is a project my wife, Jordana Munk Martin, started a few years ago at Oak Knit Studio, her Brooklyn-based art space.  It's a one-of-a-kind program that incubates emerging textile artists from around the world, showcases their work, and activates local and national communities around DIY creative projects. There are so many ways this project affects our local Brooklyn community -- and beyond.  In a world less and less real, the residency program makes art you can touch, you can feel, you can learn from, you will be inspired by.  Often, you can wear it, too.   This video shows you what I mean... Like you, I get asked to donate time, energy and money almost daily.  I try to give what I can, but I myself practically never ask anyone to give anything.  Except once in a blue moon. Cue the blue moon: I'm asking you to check this out and consider a donation.  In any amount.  Why support local arts projects like this one?  Because without them life would suck so much.


The “Jordana Tank” By Designer Lindsay Degen

May 31, 2013 — 0

My wife, Jordana Munk Martin, has inspired some new summer 2013 couture: The "Jordana Tank" by designer Lindsay Degen.  (FYI It's not Jordana in these photos.) Hero_jordanatank-product-7 Degen's beautiful knitted summer sweaters are featured on Of A Kind, which describes them like this: This is the definition of summer sweater. Hand-knit from super-soft merino wool, it’s substantial enough to wear to the office—and looks good with a blazer when the A/C is cranking. That being said: We’re pretty obsessed with how stellar both colors look with bare shoulders and white jeans.
I'm kinda proud. More than kinda.  And we are big fans of Degen's work overall, including her collaboration with Converse last year. Like most of Degen's stuff, these summer sweaters will sell out -- they've already started to, in some colors.  So get them while you can!

I love coming home to my wife Buy Buspar No Prescription,  wanting to show me what's going in the knitting world.  Last night, she showed me Andrew Salomone's work.  The guy hacked his electornic knitting machine and found a way to knit images he uploads from his computer.  Dude's got mad skillz.

Salomone recently showed his stuff at the Maker Faire in Queens, Buspar india, 250mg Buspar, and his infinite regression Cosby sweater stole the show.  The piece below, Andrew admits, Buspar usa, 30mg Buspar, will not be complete until -- you guessed it -- Bill Cosby wears it.  Here's the sweater:


Here's Andrew talking about how he made it on the electronic knitting machine:

 Andrew's played with Cosby's image before, Buspar craiglist, Buspar overseas, it turns out.  Here's what he did with some jello shots for an installation two years ago...
