pinhole camera

38 scans on the wall

I spent saturday and sunday scanning in the library computer lab and now I have 38 scans of images for the non-traditional data chapter. This chapter will let the artwork tell the story of the Internet and the mail art network. There are some great pieces of mail too, but of course, I love them all. I've got them on a server to get to during my vacation but I'm also going to put them on the laptop and print them out so that I can have a low tech beach-ready method of writing en pleine aire, on the beach like that Corona beer commercial. Waves lapping my dissertation's toes. This should be a relaxed chapter.

I sent the interview chapter to advisor John this morning. He will take a while to read it and in the mean time I will get on with the next chapter.
