The Fishbowl

My life long obsessions with the fiber & textile arts, Sci-Fi, music, and photography.

 Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”

AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE


Stealing this for work

When I think about what textile design is to me, I automaticly think of its capability to be almost anything you want it to be. It can be realy fun, pictorial and quirky, or whimisical, pretty and floral or really conceptial and serious. Anything. To me it is the perfect balance of both art and design. It allows me to have an artistic outlook on things and also create for a purpose. However the thing I love most about textiles is creating something with my hands, and being able to touch your materials as you work with them and that is why I enjoy weaving as much as I do. Creating hand generated designs are also an important aspect to me, as I find it quite to explore ideas on a computer. I think that is an important aspect of textile design, the fact that you can still find hand generated designs out there. Its obviosly a lot more rare these days, but compared to simliar design fields, I assume we do it alot more.

Tag 6: Gewebe. 

Hier lernen wir gerade, wie man die richtige Garnmenge berechnet und wie man einen Webstuhl einrichtet. 

Day 6: weave. 

Here we are learning how to calculate the correct amount of yarn and how to set up a loom.

If you’re unaware of the Food Babe, or her latest crusade of misinformation regarding chemicals in Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte, then this post might not make much sense, but you can at least be thankful you’ve had a facepalm-free day. If you have spotted some of the fallout of her ‘revelations’, here’s a quick image I threw together for you to show to anyone who’s unsure about the claims being bandied around.Now, I don’t even like Starbucks all that much (and confess to never having had a Pumpkin Spice Latte). I’m also all for transparency about the various substances added to food and drinks. However, spreading wilful misinformation about chemicals added to food isn’t helping matters at all in that regard - if anything, it’s only going to make manufacturers more reticent to make publicly available the ingredients in their products, for fear of the scientifically illiterate coming at them with pitchforks.References:
