Lately, the thought of where things come from has been fascinating to me. I like going to the farmer’s market and buying my veggies from the same guy who works in the fields, feeling connected to the source of my sustenance. My friend Julie (awesome architect and “green adviser” at Go For Change) and my brother both turned me on to this 1970s BBC television show called Connections, that traces things through their fascinating histories, showing the subtle twists and turns in the evolution of thought that brought about things as we know them, in ways we might not realize.
Last weekend, I took the ferry to Governor’s Island, and was magically transported back in time. Luckily, my camera documented the entire experience on black and white film.
