Artist Phil Hansen’s latest video brings together the ephemeral quality of the whiteboard T-shirt with the culturally ingrained images of action stars.
"Ever since the Twitter age started, I’ve always wanted a shirt that I can update and interact with my environment depending on what I’m doing or where I’m at. It’s the age we are in, I might as well wear it!"
The video is part of PITW, Hansen’s initiative to inspire creativity in people by showing them how to make cool stuff using a variety of processes and materials.
