In case you're wondering...
make your own mask or some to share with the people you love. here are links with step by step patterns for both no-sew and sew options below.
*fabric face coverings & gloves must be washed daily* dirty PPE does you no good. keep it clean. if you are reusing single use masks, put them in a ziplock and wait a few days between uses for them to disinfect naturally*
you can also use a bandana, or scarf if you have one (fabric is proven better than nothing). some people are making them out of old bedsheets or blue shop towels. its totally okay to wear your playa mask out & about too.
*2 no-sew options (one uses a paper towel, the other uses a handkerchief)
*4 sewing patterns (including one with a filter pocket for your legit mask to be reused, and even a kid size... all tested & perfected by makers i trust):
& finally, don't wear masks 24/7. only around outside people. get fresh air daily. bacteria and some flus are killed by UV sunlight and hate ventilated rooms. closed off rooms are bad, open windows and time outdoors is good. take a walk outside in not-busy areas/times. get some air in between.

FIGMENT Dallas 2020 has been cancelled to prioritize the safety of our artists, guests and volunteers. instead we will be patient. Our community retains the potential to do creative things in the future
FIGMENT Dallas has been cancelled to prioritize the safety of our guests, artists and volunteers. We appreciate all the support & dedication to the concept, but for the time being FIGMENT will be on hiatus, in stasis, marinating on new creative projects that will eventually blossom and come to fruition when the time is right. We believe in your creativity and the resilience of humanity. Although we all have to make adjustments and learn new habits, we are hoping to soon overcome our world's present challenges by remaining flexible, patient and making the most of our resources. let's mitigate exposure to large groups for now. but try to get some sunshine this weekend as we all learn to practice safety protocols and social distancing measures.
don't panic, be patient, friends. keep being creative. & wash your hands

Come check out interactive installation "INFLUX", presented by Dallas Ambient Music Nights at FIGMENT Dallas 2020.
In an effort to break the man-machine limitations and intimidations of the analog video dimension, a scaled-down, physical iteration, poised for self-discovery and therapy is to be placed into a public domain.This iteration is to include color televisions stacked atop one another for a towering effort. On display is the interaction between the user and a dedicated video processing device. The end result is one that is completely unique to the user. No two experiences will be the same.

FIGMENT Dallas Art Spotlight: 2026
2026 is a large interactive cube brought to us by Eric MacGorman. As with his other work, 2026 is created out of found recycled materials with the purpose of making something beautiful and fun out of objects otherwise discarded. Encouraging participation from all who happen upon it, there are buttons to push surrounding a tall mirror ball on a post in the middle, and finished out with LEDs to supply that almost-sci-fi nighttime glow. Measuring in at 10' wide and 20' tall (!!), there's no way to miss it!
Come play with 2026 at FIGMENT March 14!
