The semester’s end is a moving goalpost: as soon as I think I can reach it, it slides juuuust out of reach. In the meantime, I am ticking away boxes on my ever-growing academic and otherwise to do list before shifting to my summer to do lists: the mostly fun kind, and the kind involving projects I have been wanting to tackle for some time. No more papers, no more (text) books, no more classmates’ dirty looks. (one extremely pretentious chick in particular…) I am excited to share more about my summer plans this week. Exciting stuff ahead!
First on that list: heading to Houston for the night! A friend and I are celebrating the end of grad school year one, with plans to visit some of Houston’s world class museums (ah, oil money…), maybe hit a baseball game, and wander around the city. Oh, and eat. And drink. Should be fun.
Checking out all of the amazing art options got me thinking again about this video, shot during Ann Hamilton’s Event of a Thread installation at the Park Avenue Armory this winter. I’ve been a fan of Paul Octavious’ photography work on Flickr for a long time, but didn’t realize he also shot videos as beautiful as this one.
I’ll be back this week with more to say and hopefully some Houston stories to share. Hope it’s sunny where you are!
