Adieu

My friends, I think we all knew that this was coming: Dwelling Process is going on an indefinite, probably permanent, hiatus. I haven't been feelin' it lately, and I don't want to force myself to maintain a hobby that isn't fun anymore. The website will stay up as an archive, and I'll still be reading your blogs!

If you want to keep up with me, I'm building a personal portfolio website that I plan to use as a publishing platform, and I will continue to informally create and collect on Tumblr. I would also welcome Facebook requests from any of you. Thanks for reading! I really appreciate it!

Ennui

I spend a lot of time asking myself, "Should I keep doing this? Am I doing this right? Is my life structured in a way that will satisfy me?" The answer is usually some variation on, "Yes, but differently!" I'm trying to say that I don't know what place this blog is supposed to have in my creative practice(s).

Ideal Kitchen Decor

My friend Ruth's kitchen is very pretty and homey. Here are some iPhone snapshots, which I cropped but didn't edit:

Rusty Glaze

Found at a thrift store in Point Reyes, this odd little pottery vessel would make a good bud vase:

Maison

Watercolor painting of a large European pitched-roof building drenched in warm sunlight, circa 1930.

"Watercolor painting of a large European pitched-roof building drenched in warm sunlight, circa 1930." $249 on One Kings Lane--sorry for the broken-record effect, but I love that frikkin website! So much good stuff to look at. I haven't purchased anything from them, because hello, I am not literally a person made out of cash bills, but I enjoy browsing.

"Maison" means "house" (and other variants of the word) in French. Not that I speak French, or even have any particular affection for the language. It sounds pretty when spoken aloud, but there are far too many letters. Granted, English has similar issues, but I'm used to it so the frustrating nonsense of the language doesn't bother me. I do like some French movies, such as Water Lilies.

Houses Scribbled As Ever

other, home and break

The middle zine, Home, consists of "8 pages of sweet/chilling homes." Encountered on Flickr via the creator, edu martínez piracés. (Why do people insist on styling their names without capitalization? Why? Don't worry, no one thinks you're bourgeois if you ascribe to a semblance of normal grammar.) Individual photo posts: 1, 2, & 3.

For good measure:

In The Flesh

1950s biomorphic ceramic bowl with atomic-like design

"1950s biomorphic ceramic bowl with atomic-like design. This bowl was designed and made by noted engineer/artist Tracy Kinsel who was associated with the group Experiments in Art and Technology"--for sale on One Kings Lane.

Nothing is more creepily home-appropriate than this abstract fleshy bowl. The word "biomorphic" is so weird. Hey, it'd be perfect for a postmodern Halloween party; just pile some candy in there...
