Long time BMX rider, videographer and friend of Defgrip Joe Cookie created this video about an awesome guy who helped out Hurricane Sandy victims and then got a little help himself.
Checking in with filmmaker and longtime friend of Defgrip Joe Cookie, here’s one of his latest projects: A quick look at the activities of artist Ryan C. Doyle, a “mechanical and interactive artist” who repurposes the decayed ruins of Detroit landscapes to fuel his art, both literally and figuratively.
Ryan sends an optimistic message about Detroit by embracing its unique qualities and all the weirdness that comes along with a city that’s been through so much. Rather than employing a “me too” attitude or comparing Detroit to other cities more known for their art, Ryan uses his mechanical skills to create art and environments quite far removed from what you’d find anywhere else.
Joe Cookie hit me up with a link to a video he did on the ESPN site. It’s called BMX Artifacts and for the first episode, he sat down with Biz at his parents house in Lynn, MA. Biz goes through his BMX career, talking about his current past sponsors, frames he rode, contests went to, and how is one Gravity Games medal compares to Bohans stacks of X-Games medals.
