Snow Day II

Another snow day! It's been snowing since yesterday morning.

When I looked up, there was a shower of snow.

3am and I

For some reason, Murmurbird could not go back to sleep after napping for 4 hours. It's past 3am now. Birdy is awake all night.

Love Sequitur

Murmurbird's colleague Jelani is a talented animator and a poet. Today she found one of his stunning digital poetry that explored the narratives with simple sound, "murmur", and line drawings. Thought of sharing it here. Murmurbird's favorite is the breathing part.

Saturday Breakfast

If my dog was here, it would be like this on Saturday morning.

Murmurbird has to confess and tell you why she hasn't been updating her blog...

Murmurbird is playing with DOGS.

Well, they are not real. Ms. Murmurbird is addicted to an iPhone app "TouchPets". After adopting her first female dog, ShuShu, several days ago... she's been obsessed with it. She's feeding the dog, cleaning, teaching fetch and tricks, and all other stuff that you normally do when you have dogs.

The most absurd thing Murmurbird did today, which indicates the level of her addiction, is that she BOUGHT ADDITIONAL DOG FOOD FOR $3.99!!! Geez, spending the actual money on virtual pets was the last thing she could think of....

Awww.... how lovely

Shushu is chewing a tasty toy! How cute!

Got a ribbon!

The first breakthrough was when Shushu learned to get on top of the agility ball.

Chewing a healthy bone.

Oops... Murmurbird unintentionally did not update this blog for 4 days!
Did the small birdie told you about her new nails?

La la la - she got the fake strawberry cake stickers!

Sorry, Mr. Icecube. I will keep you busy!

Tree of Hearts

One day before St. Valentine's Day, murmurbird discovered the Tree of Hearts with aroma of sweet kisses and hugs.

Snow and Chocolate

Murmurbird had a snow day in New York, so decided to check out the Chocolate & I, which is a week-long festival of chocolates and all sweet stuff on the earth.
They had an intriguing tasting palette featuring chocolates in different densities, from 70% cacao to 85% cacao chocolates, as well as roasted cacao bits(yummy), powdered chocolate, and raw cacao beans which taste like a child of coffee beans and almonds.

On Thursday, there is Food for Art. Art for Thought exhibition with several ITP students and alumni. ITP alum duo Che-Wei Wang and Taylor Levy have an interesting piece called Chocolate Timepiece, which drips melted chocolates into plates that represent days, hours, minutes and seconds.

See this? Mmmmm edible clock!

Marco, who is one of the organizers, has another edible piece - a broken, or rather melted, earth. A hungry murmurbird kindly asked Marco if she could get a bite of New York. It was rejected ;P

And there was, of course, hot chocolate!

The Map of “How I got to my thesis idea”

I spent most of my day thinking about my future project... so I thought it's worth mapping out my thought process.

Proud to be a bird

Murmurbird is proud to be a bird today.

You know why? Because a French artist Celeste Boursier-Mougenot made a film of an installation in which 40 birds played the Gibson guitar. It's awesome.
Check out the BBC UK's article: "40 wild birds play a Gibson Les Paul guitar"

The Cookie Chewer

Murmurbird decided to bake cookies.

It was a pretty simple recipe of mixing ingredients and baking with a microwave! Cookies turned out well... birdie is "The Cookie Chewer" today ;)

Mt. Snow II

At Mt. Snow, murmurbird found an airport.

She also found a game where she can eat as many marshmallows as she wants.

Mt. Snow

This weekend I went to the Mt. Snow. It was awesome to be in -4 degrees world.
Our lodge was behind the airport, which was completely frozen and shut down. The airport terminal was so tiny... it was a house.

Nature creates mysterious circle...

On our way back to New York we stopped by at the Mass MOCA museum. I must say that the place is gorgeous and full of inspirational work. My favorite spot was a kids room called "You are what you eat", where things are made of sweets and candies. It's everyone's dream!
Ohhh marshmallow jelly fish! Cherrios coral leef! I would swim here all day.

There are sculptures outside. These trees are upside down.
Another favorite spot is a bridge connecting two buildings.
