alternative fuel

27 Sep

To follow up on our conversation Daniel… I think it would be great to build a kiln that has some alternative fuel sources bio diesel or waste oil…and it seems the Air force is already using it to fuel their jets.  Pretty crazy

Funny Stuff

19 Sep

To avoid freaking out about the 4 min presentation of work we have on Wednesday, I have been diligently trying to occupy my mind with funny stuff like this. Thought I would push this blogs standards a bit lower.

Hi All,
I am sure you guys know about the Turner prize. They have a really neat website with all of the runners up and winners from 1984 to today. I was looking at the following year because I saw the show in 2004 and wanted to revisit the artists concept behind “shedboatshed”.
