I just discovered your lovely blog. The Penland photos are the perfect antidote to a steamy Midwestern morning. As I was reading your various posts, a number of thoughts came to mind, so here they are in no particular order. There is a wonderful new book about the puppets that Paul Klee made for his son that might interest you ("Paul Klee: Hand Puppets, pub. by Hatje Cantz) as well as a book of photos of two groups on African peoples who paint themselves with local clays and garb themselves in flowers, vines and found objects in a fashion that can only be described as breathtaking ("Natural Fashion: Tribal Decoration from Africa" by Hans Silvester). Lastly there is movie where Fred Astaire dances with a floor lamp (without its shade) as his partner. It is very reminiscent of a drop spindle - once you helped me see that connection with your comments. I am a former weaver and spinner who mostly draws and paints these days. But the love of textiles never fades.

These polaroids are very interesting as strange – to begin with I wasn’t sure what I was looking at – drawing of or real skeleton structure of a house. I like the way you’ve framed it, the angles you have chosen. There’s something tentative, in progress about it, a between-ness - the uncertainty if we’re looking at the remnants of a once fully realised house that has been destroyed, the bare bones of it so-to-speak, or the beginnings/the promise of one.
I also find the video intriguing, although I couldn’t read the words. It’s like an animated drawing, a low tech one, which I like. I’m not 100 % sure what I’m looking at (power lines?) and those tiny glimpses of the top of a building make the angle from which you’re filming (you seem to be hovering) more obscure. The sound obscure too (maybe the words would give clue – what do they say?), withholding, I felt something/a message was being transmitted transported along these lines, something urgent, the lines are buzzing with it. Love the way you're branching out!
