school science

i have a serious obsession with industrial style work chairs, despite not owning one. paper n stitch had some great photos of some today that are lovely, lovely, lovely.

my full-time life as a ph.d. student means i get to research some amazing middle and high city school girls doing science. while observing in a science classroom last week, i found myself paying more attention to the actual classroom setting than the girls. of course, this is all a part of ethnographic research, but not when all you can think about is this lovely little stool:

it’s funny how much i hated sitting on these stools when i was in school science classes and how much i hated science in general. funny that i’ve come full circle and after two degrees in the humanities, i’m back in the social sciences, researching how girls participate and access the science identity/ies i was never able to. kinda makes me want to get my hands on one of these babies for my studio space and bring together my creative self and my new science researcher self!
