Ice Formations Diurnal Freeze-Thaw Cycles In January 2007 I was introduced to some interesting photos of ice growing from a metal fence on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I corresponded with Sheryl Terris about her photos and she gave me permission to use them on my web page. In these three photos we see ribbons of ice emerging from where the top beam sits on the vertical support posts. The sign above warns to Beware of Dog and in the photo below we see the legs of one of those dogs. We also see the size of this ribbon in inches.

Fabric Folding: Origami Made With Fabric Fabric folding is like origami but with fabric instead of paper. The major difference between fabric and paper is that fabric is softer and won’t hold creases well.

Iron on decals from plastic shopping bags I've been playing around with this idea for a while (you can tell from the Christmas tree in the background of a few of the photos). It's quite fun and a good way to cover up stains that can't be removed from well, nearly all the tshirts my kids have. Ages ago I started collecting interesting coloured plastic bags from friends, thinking that I would make some reusable shopping bags by ironing them together to make a kind of Tyvek material. This has been done a lot in the last few years, and there are a lot of tutorials out there on the internet showing how to fuse plastic shopping bags into a more durable kind of material that can be sewn like fabric. Here's a good one, in case you've not seen or heard of it before. Here are a few lovely examples of fused bags too.

Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. My hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as we find daily in articles and books. Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month.
