The books on the desk, the thesis draft chapter

In lieu of giving you something to read that I’m working on, I’ll show you what I’m reading… the list now includes Alice in Wonderland, Nietzsche’s Gay Science, Johan Huizinga’s Homo Ludens, Karl Popper’s Open Society and its Enemies, and a whole bunch of books on art and cybernetics from the 60s. These don’t include the 1200 images I have of material from the Generator project in the Cedric Price Archives at the CCA in Montreal.

Sometime tonight, I hand my advisor a draft of my thesis submission for final review. The problem here isn’t a lack of material or even a matter of me writing the pages. I’ve written much more than that– it’s deciding what to include in those 20 pages and hoping I get it right. It’s going to be late tonight, I have a feeling.
