Spring fest collaboration partners

April 11th, 2011

On the Spring Fest yesterday I ran in to a table full of vegetable goodies that caught my attention! It was members of the Purdue Student Farm and the Full Circle Agriculture Project that held a sale with plants they’ve grown themselves. I briefly explained our greenhouse project to them and they are willing to help us out with some plants for the exhibition! I didn’t know the farm existed so check it out if you did not already know about it.

Virtual Choir 2000+

I thought this was a nice merger of ideas/work that I am interested in and the type of youtube-video collaging that Aaron works with in his videos.

“The evening hangs beneath the moon,
A silver thread on darkened dune.
With closing and eyes and resting head,
I know that sleep is coming soon.”
