Making lots of visual things can make written words disappear.
Walking Philadelphia is always a joy; historic places pop out on every corner.
This is one of the many historic graveyards I pass at least once a week. It is one of my favorite places to sit and relax a minute or two on the 2.5 mile walk to my art studio. Yesterday I discovered a gravestone for a Revolutionary War Captain in the Pennsylvania Army.
A few of my favorite things. The orange card holder was given to me by Damini. I designed the orange and purple mechanical pencil. Oh and this is taken with my new hipstamatic.
Janna Levin shared this animated simulation of the launch, landing, and finally exploration on Mars. If you didn’t know what interesting crazy technology was involved in this mission or how many points for failure there were, check this out.
It’s mind boggling.
It’s wonderful to look down and find industrial objects of such beauty. Things of utility that have been designed to work efficiently and serve a purpose. This situation has wonderful color and texture.
Curating and installing art exhibitions isn’t glamorous. It takes a barrel full of skills and some considerable math and physical effort. I’ve been installing a show for the past couple of days. All artwork presents challenges but 3D work requires more physical structures to display and present work properly.
I love doing the work — all of it.
