The fictional interview. A strange medium. Oft used as a learning exercise. I want it to be an end in itself.

03 _ 14 _ 2006
When I was doing research for Collective Memory Map I ran across a lot of interesting links.

03 _ 13 _ 2006

Cafe Gratitude. Every menu item is an affirmation. Grant and I both ordered, "I am deserving."

02 _ 25 _ 2006
I started looking at old journals. I want to do something with them. I don't know what yet... but here's a sketchy idea-- excerpts from the center of my first journal. It's sort of a tease.

Baker Beach and the SF MOMA today. It's the last weekend of Chuck Close.

02 _ 23_ 2006

02 _ 22 _ 2006
Two days ago I made organ magnets for my fridge.

02 _ 17 _ 2006

02 _ 11 _ 2006
The sea monkeys are finally visible... yet still incredibly difficult to photograph. Thanks to the magic of Friendster I have recently been reunited with someone I knew in elementary school.

02 _ 05 _ 2006
'Xanadu' was amazing, stunning, incredible. I haven't written an entry since I saw it because, really, everything else pales in comparison.

01 _ 25 _ 2006
Pluto isn't a planet. And today I found a new book by Audrey Niffenegger.

01 _ 24 _ 2006

The pattern on the silverware that I grew up with.

11 _ 08 _ 2005

Yesterday, as research for our current project, Sara and I went on a "Gold Rush Tour" of downtown.

10 _ 24 _ 2005
I walked around downtown today.

10 _ 19 _ 2005
Here's a peculiar sort of feedback... statistics regarding words that people have searched for that lead them (magically) to my site

10 _ 16 _ 2005
My mom told me when she was visiting that this is a passion flower.

10 _ 10 _ 2005

I went to a reading of this book today. It was great.

9 _ 21 _ 2005

Nostalgia. Today I drove down to San Jose to see a close friend. While she was at work I visited places that usually just live in my mind.

I went to see: Media Remix: Ninth Annual MadCat Women's International Film Festival

9 _ 13 _ 2005

It's been a while since my last entry... moving is unsettling. But here I am, in San Francisco.

9 _ 03 _ 2005

I thought this would be part of yesterday's post... but there were too many images. I'm so tickled that these still exist.

It's been so long since I've had time to make books all day long. I'm working on five of them at the moment.

The auction was smaller than usual today.

8 _ 16 _ 2005

8 _ 15 _ 2005

This is a video that I made in Italy.

found this beautiful scrapbook.
