Day 29: Crocheting

A quick additional post for day 29: I just read about a project I believe we should all be interested in and do our best to support: The Institute for Figuring is crocheting a coral reef.

  6. Cool–I love to see the rhizome grow. “Look,” Zizek would say to me, “he is narcissistically amused.” Have you seen _Zizek!_, the movie, by the way?
