I recently found out about "spore prints." Although I love mushroom imagery, I never thought about taking a print from a live mushroom. I collected these mushrooms from my neighborhood. After plucking off the stem, I placed the mushrooms on a sheet of white paper and enclosed the entire page, mushrooms and all, in a tupperware. 12 hours later you have these amazing shibori like aureoles in browns, ochres and greys.

Better Pics! Here is a better look at the Spring Window. They look even better in person if you can make it down to the store!

Excuse the poor pics form my phone. I will be posting better images this week!
The Atrium features this sphere, which is 92" wide and two others, one 72" wide and a baby one about 48" wide. All the flowers are strung on thread running floor to ceiling. I used over 2000 yards of thread!

I am blown away by these "Hair Hats" by Japanese artist Nagi Noda. I came across these plastic taxidermy forms on eBay the other day and they would make a great base for something like these wigs. Amazing!

Aaron and I have been collecting bird nests. I was searching for images of nests on google when I came across this installation by Benjamin Verdonck. The Dutch artist built a giant sized nest on the side of an office building in Rotterdam and lived within it for a 5 day period. Check out the video below!
Another year has slipped past and I still haven't kept to a sketchbook! 2009 was a tremendous year of change. I look forward to a New Year full of more adventures, images and birds nests...
a page a day (preferably in a sketchbook)!
Happy 2010 to All!
Oh, and I love that hedgehog!!! He's just a wish:)
