I survived my talk for and in the process learned something about how to use Zoom and Keynote.

I did a lot of editing in for an brief animation to use in Keynote. I thought that I might as well make a GIF out of it too.

Got a shelf up there…maybe I should lighten the colour of the angle brackets.

I put up some slotwall a little while ago to set up a small sewing/beading/chainmaille/Zoom session/etc… area.

I now want to put a shelf near the top of the slotwall. I am only going to put light things up there and attach very light lights tο the underside 😁, so I decided to modify t-slot nuts to use to attach angle brackets to the slotwall (the profile of the slots is not T-shaped).

Attempts at making customized from a couple of decades ago.

Because…plastic mirror clips are cheap and…well…why not?

Can you tell how these pictures differ?

How do the differences affect how they are perceived by the viewer?

This is a link to a Twitter Moment that I set up 4 years ago about my investigations related to “The Creature” (which itself came into being more than 3 decades ago).


I got a length of zipper with molded plastic teeth, but could only find the right sized slider for coil zippers in the store…so now after staring at it, I am thinking that I may be able to make a clunky version of a zipper slider myself…hmm 🤔…why haven’t I tried this before?

It amused me that this little coincidence with the background at the occurred a few days after I posted “Radial Sector Annulus” to Twitter (in 2019).

The Juno background was in motion, but it occasionally looked a bit like the ‘spider-leg’ maroon lines in my picture 😁.

Considering the band whose song inspired the name of the piece, it is interesting that that this similarity would show up at the Junos.

"Creatures of the Seven Seas": The creatures depicted here are constructed from heptagons, rings of heptagons, and heptagon squiggles. In some cases, they appear to be using patterns of shading to conceal their true structure :)

I made this in 2018 and it was shown at the JMM in 2019.
