It had a name.

scratch that

I’ve been into Podcasts lately. I subscribed to this really good one called TED. And was really diggin’ this one by Stephen Petranek telling us the ways the world could end very suddenly. Here it is:

And, my point for sharing this is not only is it awesome but I sort of got inspired to do a new project for YCN instead of the Ping Pong one I’ve been working on for months. It’s called Street Talk and it’s basically an attempt to get people start talking about issues. I want to do some designs that will be posted on the sides of phone booths that deal with some of these concerns. Like this:

But I have to focus on one. And I’m battling over two. I really want to promote space colonization. Or promote putting more money into space research. I remember when I was a little girl,  my dad telling me how imperative it is for us to get out there because something horrible is bound to happen. This actually terrified me. But I find it silly that I hardly think about it today. I get so occupied with petty everyday things and forget that there’s a bigger picture.

Or I will do something that promotes protecting bio-diversity and the rain forests. Last year I took a science course and I was lucky enough to have this professor. (Yeah, I realize I’m being a bit creepy posting his pic, but you all need to know what he looks like. And this picture makes him look whimsical.)  Anyways, his lectures always depressed me about the way humans have been destroying the earth in the last 200 years and we continue to do so today even though the majority of us have been educated about how we need to make a change. I always wanted to help the awareness of that and now I can through this project. I just wish I had thought about it a couple months ago. seigel-4x6

Anyways, take that in. I feel like I’m just rambling on and being a creeper.

I have no regrets.
