Brazilian artist Jum Nakao designs dresses made of paper that's been folded, laser-cut, carved, and laced. All the dresses are destroyed after each show: "That is why we destroy everything, to show that there is something more important, something much more lasting than what people see and value at first sight."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
