sculpture and shadows

ruth asawa sculptures at the de young in golden gate park. so neat.

giant camera/camera obscura

this oddity was placed on the national register a few years ago, and was constructed in the late 40's as part of playland at the beach near ocean beach in san francisco. i wish it were all still there...what a sight it would have been. next trip back, i plan to check out the musee mecanique.

surprises during washing

i've been prepping for a bleaching workshop in san fran that i'm taking at the conservation lab at the legion of honor (i leave saturday) and i've got to bring some sample materials to play with. part of my preparation treatment is washing my sample objects, and i saw something while washing that i've never seen before...this is a pattern of stencil motifs and the design for a wooden chair. it's printed on manila paper. the carbon ink must have been printed on top of something else though, because the area around the media did not wet up, creating this pretty effect on the paper while wet. if anyone knows what this is, i'd be interested to find out. or maybe i'll let you know when i get back.
