  2. the wind invites itself in

     
  3. Not sure yet if I will use this, but thought I might need a cover.

     
  4. I am helping this bug write a poem

     
  5. the sound of a bird not hitting a window

     
  6. yes yes yes, from field notes

     
  7. Four photos from field notes working sessions, with a few sketches from when I was figuring out what I wanted to do.

     

  8. "I wandered home by unfamiliar streets. There was no point in trying to find a taxi at that hour, in that suburb. In any case I was in the mood to walk. I wanted to be alone and take my time and move through space at my own tempo, not the forced pace of a car or mass transit, yes, I needed to feel the distance, the physical, mental, and personal space, that separated me just then from my own house, and for once I’d lost the craving for speed, with its bland reassurance that nothing happens while you pass from one point to another - as if the points themselves were all that mattered and were not in fact part of a single, identical, self-same, monotonous place, a place you can never leave."

  9. A few failed attempts at making field notes images. Sometimes the work just doesn’t photograph well, or I realize afterwards that the text doesn’t work.

     
  10. the least i could do, from field notes

    There’s an earlier animated version of this one.

     
  11. More postcards from field notes! I’ve been having fun mailing these to friends near and far.

     
  12. I write mostly on a computer, but when I walk I carry a notebook, which is useful for collecting first impressions. I sometimes type these notes afterwards and expand and edit them. Occasionally the notebook handwriting captures something which, though full of flaws and things I would rephrase, feels true to the moment in which it was written. This is a fragment from a walk around Mundy Pond in St. John’s.
