Habitat Loss

@plugusin Tweeted this Boxing Day afternoon:

Reading Kelly Gallagher’s Readicide. Interesting stat: in a survey, he found that his HS students read for an average of 17 minutes a day.

It made me dust of an art project that’s been sitting on my shelf: Habitat Loss. I have the feeling of being squeezed by video, ear buds, endless canned music (so few make music anymore), multimedia and so on. There seems so little room and, especially, so little quiet in which to read. The two pieces are 11 x 17 each and are meant to be read side-by-side, on a wall, not on a computer screen.
