My work, thoughts, process; my melancholy objects, my lists, my navigation, my environment.
My self-portrait.

Austerity Measures

I am starting to work with a polymer and my guilt over using this material, essentially plastic, has led me to personal conservation measures that I hope will balance my carbon output:

I will only wash my hair every 4 days (water conservation)

I will hang my clothes to dry (electricity conservation)

I will wear slippers instead of turn on the furnace (gas conservation)

I will only flush for the heavy stuff (water conservation)

I will not wash the dishes before I put them in the dishwasher.

I will save the water that normally runs down the drain for the freshest water for my morning coffee.

I will remove the sod-like stuff from my front yard and plant water conscious plants (water and electricity conservation ...labour conservation)
