Side Projects


Distant is a vibrant, vulnerable digital community that inspires easy-going exchange.




Can I Show You Something? is a quarterly showcase of the unique ways Distant Community members utilize specific digital tools.

Our inaugural event was about all things Are.na, “a place to save content, create collections over time and connect ideas. Privately or with other people.” Whether you consider yourself a pro or you’ve never explored the tool before, members Carolyn LaLonde, Tim Finch, Lauren Gallagher, and Jason Combs each discussed their unique approaches to making the most out of what Are.na has to offer.
