I'm moving as of March 8, right when my last full-time quarter of school ends. If you'd like my new address, just let me know.
The thesis is halfway done, and this is my last full-time quarter at school. I'm currently finishing up last quarter's projects, and starting at least one new one: a weekly series of photographs of Jesse's studio (see image on home page).
My thesis is about how objects can contain and transmit human energy, and adopt a personality of their own.
It was a wonderful and busy summer, the main product of which was In Strangers' Houses. Part 1 showed in Gallery 1434 at UCSB and Part 2 will come out in January (watch this space!). This quarter I'm learning to program (Perl) at the same time as I'm learning to set type (letterpress) - I'm covering several centuries of communication technology at once.
My first year of grad school is over, and I'm so happy summer is here. There seems to be some sort of especially viral strain of Spring Fever here in Santa Barbara. I'm spending the last two weeks of June at the Maine Photographic Workshops, and visiting Karen, who is now officially an osteopath. When I return I will be an expert at using a view camera and I will be newly in touch with my spine.
Spring quarter is just beginning,
and the serious weather is setting in. Perfect sky, perfect sea breeze,
perfect sun. It's hard to imagine a more beautiful place to live.
My second quarter of grad school
is finishing - only one year and one quarter left to go. I have a feeling
I'll just get the hang of school right about the time it's over.
I've started my
second quarter of school and a new TAship, this time for Photography.
I've fully nested in my studio, and I'd post a picture of such if my
digital camera hadn't broken. I'll have a new, fancy one soon and you
will be very excited with all the new pictures.
I'm all settled into school now - that's me playing darts outside my studio. Classes end December 3rd and don't start again until January 5th, so if I seem to have disappeared don't worry - I'll be back soon.
School is the
only news. School is all I do. I love it.
There's a late addition to the Diaspora responses! I got a postcard from a Jim Keating who bought Songbook by Nick Hornby, found my postcard inside and sent it in right away. But the exciting thing is that he didn't buy it at Skylight, he bought it used at Amoeba! A diaspora indeed!
