This Week in Experimental

This Week in Experimental vol 85


I’m back, Experimenters!

I had a very restful break filled with tv watching, podcast binging, book reading, and ignoring work as much as possible. I also spent some time getting my home studio space slightly more organized so that I can work more effectively and maybe even return to some hand painted film work very soon.

In solidarity,

Things to Do
Assignment: You know that list of articles and screenings you keep meaning to get to–maybe it’s a bunch of Bookmarks or a Reading List or an actual physical pile or a streaming service list? Make a loose schedule for yourself to get through it. Maybe you pick a day each week that you spend an hour or two reading/watching a few things or maybe you just take on one or two things this week.

Journal: Spring is coming. What can you do to get organized and clean your workspace (both physical and mental)?
