With my resignation from work solid, my brain has really started to free up... my mind is coming up with new ideas for projects every day. It's a feeling of freedom that I haven't had in about three years... we'll see how long it takes for a new spirit-crushing job to come along.
In the meantime, today's idea evolved out of a discussion with Meg on how I met R and spiraled into a discussion on how connected everyone is. I remembered having read about an artist who would diagram connections like this that had died recently (well, looking now, it was in 2000, so not-so recently... how in the hell did I remember that?). It turns out to have been Mark Lombardi, who would make art out of sociograms from social network analysis. Thinking back on this, I thought it would be really cool to figure out how to do my own socigram of all of the people that R and I are inviting to the wedding and have it posted up somewhere. It would take a lot of work... but then, I might not have a lot of work to do for a little while.
Other projects are in the works... some big, some small, all to be revealed when they solidify.
