Was mostly gathering materials, today. Found some balsa wood sticks from the hobby store nearby, and did a trip to Value Village finally and, after running around the store for a while, found an aquarium tank. It’s disgusting and needs cleaning, but that’s ok. Also picked up these plastic finely gridded sheets used in needlework, in fun colours. Grids! And a radio to disassemble. Made some more lil eels out of black air-dry clay. We’ll see what they look like tomorrow.


Also checked out an undergraduate show that I quite liked, by Page Cowell.

Each was a household contraption that could be turned to create movement, and played a stop-motion flip book animation. I like the decision to paint the plinths, made it more interesting.
