I came across this project from Tau Siroko which uses pattern as a tool to communicate about Feminism and wage inequalities. The strap line is "9% doesn't seem like a lot until you see it repeated" I thought it was a clever response to a serious issue. You can read more about the project here.
The snow has gone for now where I live. I'm always a bit sad about this. I love the other worldliness of snow, how it transforms our usual landscapes, and of course the patterns it makes.
I'm going to have to start to give some serious thought to umbrellas now... Stay tuned for another 'weekend starts here...' tomorrow.
