Light: Don't Cross The Streams

Its as easy as that, and yet I have. It'll make your sockets black or throw out your fuse board so that you have to get your super duper to go down stairs at 10pm and flip your switch. Anyway, I figured out how to get these sculpture hooked up to a dimmer switched so stayed tuned for a demo.



I watched Ken Burn's doc on the Shakers. Their focus on craft and sustainability is inspiring.
They invented the flat broom. I am looking for a good book on their designs and process. Suggestions are welcome.

An unwavering spirit and flowers made from Café Bustelo cans. Very romantic.

Beautiful People

A Jasmin Dizdar film. Uncornily uplifting. I immediately thought that Beautiful People was a counter to Greenaway's Zoo.Which I then decided was not accurate. Both are unapologetically magical in the sense that they present an archetypal human motive with a dash of love, tragedy and amputee identity disorder.empathy vs. apotemnophilia
Alas, I believe it was the amputee identity disorder that threw me. Happy New Year. Carry on!
