More on the Research Thing

| | Comments (1)

I've been singleminded lately, and it's all about the laboratories and research and the nature of creative discovery. I've either been reading, or searching for things to read, or sitting around wondering what keywords would help me find more reading. One thing is really nice, and that is the computerized databases of all this stuff that make finding things and then requesting copies so much easier. It means that instead of having ten books on my desk at this point, I have closer to fifty. Of course, it also means I have to read those fifty, take notes on them, make bibliographies, and give them back in a much more compressed timeline.

Here's what I look at when I look up from my pile of books. Spooky, isn't it?

Extensive Research


So the new quarter has started, and now I am in what is called my fifth year and is essentially an intensive thesis studio over three quarters. For the last week I've been prowling the library, digging books out and reading an amazing number of things. Suddenly my normal habit of spending free time reading random books from the stacks comes in handy.

Here's where I'm going to spend the next eight months:

Studio space

That pile of books on the desk will get a lot larger (actually, it already has; I went to the library again after taking this photo) and then will slowly go back to the library. I think that, like my classmates, I'll be bringing my entire computer setup into the studio. I could use my scanner there, definitely, and the second monitor would come in handy. And after all, I'm going to be essentially living in the studio until I'm done.

As soon as I have some coherence, I'll write more about my research. But suffice it to say that I've been reading a lot about neurological implantation experimentation.
