Eleanor and I have been collaborating at a local abandoned building in downtown providence. We found a big open area that we can access and are using the materials we can find there to make the place a little more special/surreal/visited/mysterious/whatever. We decided to use the unending sea of broken glass from window panes that fell from the floor above to create a reflective pyramid in the center of the open-air stage.

This is what we have so far. Its been alot of work to shovel and pile all the glass and as you can see in the pictures below, we still have a ways to go if we are going to use all the glass

Eleanor pouring glass

still alot more to go...

My trip home

Just before escaping Asbury Park, Eleanor and I stopped off to take some pictures around town. Luckily it was ridiculously foggy, which made for some interesting photos.

Lots of geese everywhere....

The beginnings of a highrise condominium complex that
wont ever be built.

An interesting house on Kinglsy st. just off the water

More construction?...


After a long day of studying, I have completed (without cheating) a whole map of the continental United States - all on my own! I am hoping that this acheivement qualifis me to pass the fourth grade in most of the states i have amorphously drawn.

Notice the delicate linework
