I have started a new visual archive on Tumblr as part of my research on tools for art, craft, fashion, and the intersections and dynamic overlays between these disciplines.
Toolshedding is basically the groundwork for new projects (ideas) that I have incubating for 2013 and beyond. A lot of this is a synthesis between past writing projects, current studio work, and collaborations past and future.
Feel free to send me suggestions of tools that you love and adore.
