Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

So I have been reading all of your act5 posts with great interest, my favorite was Giuseppe's Wood For Money. I liked the relationship that his family developed with a neighbor--both parties benefiting from the exchange. I though about how I could form a relationship like that and then one day I realized that I already had. I currently am interning with a local glass artists named Peter Houk. I spend 7-8 hours a week with him and receive no pay. My main task is to vectorize images that he draws. In exchange for this service he teaches me; About his techniques, his working habits/studio practices, and his art. I love every minute that I get to spend with him because of how much I am learning and I especially love that in turn I can help him.

Currently working on two projects with him, they should be done before the end of EVOKE so I'll post some photos when they are all finished.

You're working with Peter!? You know Michelle McGuire, I assume? I'm pretty sure I met Peter (or at least Michael Cima) once when she brought me to the MIT glasslab.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
