Read Folding a round paper plate into square box by Matt Maldre (Spudart)
Most origami starts with a square sheet of paper. The corners of the square are integral to shapes and folding lines. Would it be possible to fold a ROUND sheet of paper into a SQUARE box? And not just any ordinary round sheet of paper, but a PAPER PLATE. Maybe your blueberries are rolling off …
And of course he’s got some Xerox art in here as well! 😉
I’ve just noticed that in addition to my relatively obvious user RSS feed on Goodreads, there’s a separate hidden feed of just my reading status updates. It’s of the form https://www.goodreads.com/user_status/list/#######-user-name?format=rss where #######-user-name is the typical user number and name combination at one’s profile page.

Before you read this, I want you to go and take a peek here. Stay with it until the end.
A dramatic reframing, and apparently a very much needed one. This (and the referenced article within it) are a must read.

I’ll have to think about this and revisit the broader idea a couple of times to really digest it.

I had posted about watching Tim’s experiment and a fellow academic replied to me via Mastodon that about a reverse experiment from 1715 that may be of interest:

Although strictly speaking, the goal here was to get birds to imitate the written recorder tunes rather than vice versa.

Checked into Jamba Juice Innovation Bar
Large Orange C-Booster

I’m kind of surprised at the lack of merchandising effort in this massive and potentially gorgeous Jamba Juice. I’m not sure if it’s that they’re so old or just dirty, but the windows here are in just terrible shape too. I’m wondering how long they’ll be open.

It’s been almost a year and a half since I’ve done much with Instagram. As a result, in part, I take fewer photographs and mean to fix that. I still need a new set up to pull content back to my site, but I spent some time to port my backlog of photos from Instagram back to my website, so now I’m back in sync at least.

Watched DOWNHILL Vs DOGS from YouTube

This is a compilation I edited of many videos that can be found on YouTube & Pinkbike . It is for entertainment purposes only. I don' t. take any credit for the original footage, as I only edited the footage. All original footage credit goes to the filmers and owners.

Music : Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks

Possibly twice as long as it ought to be, but entertaining. The dogs manage to bite it more than their riding companions.
Watched Bird Song Preludes - Proof of Concept by Tim PrebbleTim Prebble from YouTube

This is a proof of concept for a project I am doing later in the year, as part of the Auckland City Council Artists Residency, where I will be based in Little Huia for two months...

A fascinating experiment of taking birdsong and translating it into music. This is pretty cool!
