Multi-media Thursday

Shameless commerce imitating art, quite nicely:

The big-picture, extended play version takes a LONG time to download. The small
extended version is worth it if only for the dog.

This one takes a long time to load, but it's not a commercial and it's quite weird:"

“Morpho Towers--Two Standing Spirals” is an installation that consists of two ferrofluid sculptures that moves synthetically to music. The two spiral towers stand on a large plate that hold ferrofluid. When the music starts, the magnetic field around the tower is strengthened. Spikes of ferrofluid are born from the bottom plate and move up, trembling and rotating around the edge of the iron spiral." You can read a lot more about it before you decide whether to download the movie.

Myself, tonight I am taking the Precious Metal Clay class (one shot, 3 hours) that was postponed last week. I have been being drawn to the beading shop, and glass help, but maybe it's time for a fresher prescription (this one will be 2 in December).

And Mena the disappearing cat did it again (36 hours) and then turned up last night, and disappeared again, but I found her lair in the closet. She is getting too thin and I finger-fed her a glop of Petromalt, a sovereign remedy for hairballs. And tomorrow it's off to the vet for her. I worry. Her real owner, the OBD, has had bronchitis for the most recent 7 weeks of her semester in Italy. Her father is visiting as we speak, and maybe will Sort Things Out.

That Night: The PMC class was great, I enjoyed the teacher and the people. The medium is very, very dangerous. A photo will follow tomorrow. Actually, just having the class in the bead shop had some drawbacks. Nice glass ones all sizes and colors...

And if you carry your clear-packaged set of compact fluorescent bulbs up your dark front stairs, clutching them to your cashmere vest bosom, you get a fine light show.
