A Mysterious Documentary about a Mystery

The other day I happened on Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles, a documentary about some mysterious tiles. It’s captivating, and touching, and intriguing.

A community can look like this

a community can look like this (color version) Originally uploaded by arimoore Shira and I continue to do research on our future housing options. The drawing here is me puzzling over certain house types and just messing around with pretty shapes. (I feel like I’m getting better at drawing trees freehand thanks to all of […]
