Weaving + etching experiments in progress.
I’m weaving scraps of kitakata and then sewing them together on the sewing machine. On Saturday I will print an etching on them.
For now, though, they are clipped to the curtains. Can’t wait to get printing. I have the pieces of several projects prepared; now I just have to put them together.
Happy (almost) Friday! It’s going to be a printmaking weekend.
But, I let the plate sit for a few days (…maybe more than a few days…) and now my hard ground is rubbery. Sigh.
“One is inside / then outside what one has been inside
One feels empty / because there is nothing inside oneself”
“One tries to get inside oneself / that inside of the outside / that one was once inside / once one tries to get oneself inside what one is outside: to eat and to be eaten
to have the outside inside and to be / inside the outside”
“But this is not enough.

New little lepporello book: letterpress, typewriter, Polaroids, thread. I was thinking about John Baldessari when I made those Polaroids.
“I hope your future ventures come through. It’s exciting yet equally annoying how anxious and irritable we can feel about this awesome future that we don’t know about yet.”
Wishing all good things to all you guys.
(I’m feeling thankful for the supportive people around me. I’m also weaving the carrot Polaroids, maybe to put in a book.)
