recent photocopy fun

Here's some left-overs/process from a recent freelance project. My Form and Methods class also used the photocopier to make some lovely formal experiments——ahhhha! I will post some of their work once I go through their documentation.

-5° F today

Outside today: Our cold but covered park.

Inside today: looking at these playrooms!

Playrooms from Childrens Space's, Molly and Norman McGrath, 1978.

new space soooon!

Finally after six years of slow slow work, the unfinished part of my upstairs is going to have insulation and heat and walls and electricity! Thanks DAD and Big Jay and Tim for all your help! Over winterbreak i'll paint and settle in. I'd like to have wallpaper in the stairwell and these are my picks for today: this one, and this one, and this one. And while we're at it: this for my kitchen, and this one just makes me crazzzzy!

inside scarry—

I just reclaimed my old beloved Richard Scarry's Best Counting Book Ever. Sandwiched between the 70 Seventy spread was a translucent Radio Shack bag with some funny contents: a stack of dried pansies and this drawing of Lowly the Worm—my favorite Richard Scarry character. Mister Scarry kept my imagination busy for a huge chunk of my childhood. Come to find out his wife had the same name as my mother—Patricia Murphy.

locals excursions

in order: the Arboretum, the Guthrie (that mighty spider is 5 stories up and on the outside), a walk with my parents' dog, the garage at night, Minnesota Zooooo, and the great and icy Powderhorn.
