Rafael speaks today at Texas Tech University in Lubbock

R: I was invited to speak about SWEAT and our projects and process by the doctoral students in the Critical Studies and Artistic Practice program in the School of Art at Texas Tech University. We created an ephemeral arcade in the halls of the school the morning after I spoke, so people could actually get their hands on the games. The Daily Toreador gave us a great write-up, unfortunately it's inaccessible online from off-campus without a paid subscription. The author gave me a page of his favorite quotes at Think Exist [Rafael Fajardo quotes].

Full Disclosure: SWEATequity shareholder and collaborator Francisco Ortega-Grimaldo is a member of the doctoral cohort that invited me. His latest projects can be found at Ludustroika.
