Following the death of his sister to brain cancer twelve years ago, Motoi Yamamoto adopted salt as his primary medium. In Japanese culture salt is not only a necessary element to sustain human life, but it is also a symbol of purification. He uses salt in loose form to create intricate labyrinth patterns on the gallery floor or in baked brick form to construct large interior structures. As with the labyrinths and innavigable passageways, Motoi views his installations as exercises which are at once futile yet necessary to his healing. (Read the whole thing.

I have been putting my energy into knitting for Nerd Wars. I'm on the Babylon 5 team; my first project doubles as a G'Kar-inspired project and a Ventine's Day gift for sindrian Next up I am doing a "Grey 17 is Missing" shawl for the prime numbers challenge. I am a huge dork.
Also I have been reading a lot.

I am really really hoping that the roads and sidewalks are not super-hazardous tomorrow. So much snow. So much rain. So much wintry mix. I am almost certain that tomorrow will not be a snow day, so I am fervently hoping that I won't be skidding all over the place on my way in to work tomorrow.
Also I'm quite cabin-fevery. Want to go places and do stuff. After a good sleep.
How's by you?
