Sep '04 - Apr '06
I am sorry I have not posted in a long time. A big reason for this has been a general unhappiness with my work. I'm a highly self-critical individual, which can be quite annoying, even to me.
Anyhow, I realized I haven't shown you my home for this term. I have a window seat (click on it to make it big):
Usually we have something called Good Times, a small event every Friday at about 5pm where we get together, drink some cheap beer, snack on snacks, etc. I think many schools have such an event (I know SCI-Arc does, for example). And as with others, ours are also thematic. This week, since it's Good Friday, we had No Time For Good Times on Thursday instead. I was feeling good after a decent desk crit, so I got a beer but then sat back down to read the service manual for the giant, broken 21" CRT I just bought for cheap (you can see it on the left in the above pic. I'm in the process of fixing it. Sometimes having an engineering degree is handy). While I did that, though, everyone else was painting eggs:
The stand for all the eggs was apparently whipped up in the shop in about 5 minutes. I think everyone did a pretty nice job.
Last, for now, here's a shot of the Transparencies studio having a pin-up. To prep them for final reviews in about three weeks, they've been having guest critics in every two weeks or so. And they've been using a lot of Plexiglas. Good, expensive times, yes?
Actually, here's last. It's Christer. He's of Swedish heritage and he has no idea I took this picture of him and posted it on the Internet. I'm sure he'll find out soon. When I visited the Eames house in LA, I bought him a postcard that had nothing but a bowl of eggs on it.
Good Times, indeed.
