Planetary: Jim Denevan

What’s more ‘planetary’ than a guy that makes Earthworks art?

Jim Denevan makes temporary drawings on sand
earth and ice that are eventually erased by
waves and weather.


Amazing photography! You can scroll through his galleries and click on the ‘explanation’ links at the top for more in-depth information about his individual works. All photos from this post are his, btw.

sickkkk

One of the ways that designs are ‘sustainable’ is that they are long-lasting; as in, they remain unchanged and popular for a long long time. I wish that polaroid cameras were more sustainable. I like the idea of instant photographs quite a bit. I’m bummed that buying one now is soo expensive.
I’m also really bummed that I have a cold. I seem to always get one at the beginning of each semester, then one in the middle and one at the end.
I am pleased to announce that this post is coming from my couch, where I FINALLY have wireless [set up by someone much more tech-y than me]!

And finally: Studio is going rather swimmingly thus far. The first project we’re doing is to create an eco-friendly soultion to a ‘personal problem’ we’ve discovered and then researched. I had a hard time coming up with any ‘personal problems’ that weren’t already being done by everyone else or wasn’t crazy tacky until I thought of an alternative for a plastic spoon [because I am wimpy and don’t use metal spoons for my soup]. Now I’m trying to figure out which materials to use, biodegradable starch stuff vs. a quick-to-replace wood, and a way to push the whole product from a combined spoon on one end & fork on the other end to something even bigger/greater/greener than just some really attractive spoonfork.

PS: AS IF TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE – I just found out that Polaroid is srsly dead. They’ve recently announced that they’re officially going to stop making more instant film [ http://www.polaroidshow.com/ ]. So buying a Polaroid instant camera now is a complete waste; that totally ruins the dreams I’ve had since I was a junior in high school when I asked for a Polaroid camera as a present and my parents told me it was becoming obsolete. I mean, duh, digital cameras are “instant”, but I don’t usually print out my pictures because I take too many. Today is such a bum day.

pps: I keep wanting to get done with the roll of film that’s chillin in my Fisheye right now so that I can take all the rolls I’ve shot since I got it in to get developed, but I keep missing the daylight. And I can not bring myself to be wasteful.

What will happen when all film becomes obsolete? Oh man.
