Wall of phone books—the white pages. The second picture is a close-up.
Below is a phone booth made of yellow pages bricks.
These pictures are from the Beamis Center in Omaha. The installation is by Matthew Dehaemer. You can read about it here. There is a bird’s eye view of the whole installation. Small phone centers are set up where students are calling everyone in the Omaha phone book with the quote of the day.
Yesterday I did my two hours weaving which is somewhat frustrating at this point because I’m having a hard time keeping up with where I am in the design. Got the huge cartoon out and re-marked everything, hopefully in the right places.
I also did some design work, which involved much math. If I want a spiral to be a certain size after ikat wrapping and weaving, how much do I stretch out the spiral? And, in addition, I’m going to take it to Kinko’s to be enlarged, the dimensions have to work for both width and length. Think I finally got it worked out, but will let it “soak” for a while before making the plunge at Kinko’s.
We went to see Star Trek in the afternoon. I had heard it was a good movie, but knew going in that space movies are not my favorite. I was squirming in my seat and looking at my watch frequently. And the theater was COLD!
Today I will call the dentist about an appointment for the broken tooth. Fun stuff!
