Today was a bit of an improvement on yesterday, but more importantly I got a new project! And there’s actually no reason to keep a lid on this one. I’m researching a nonfiction book called “Stony-Faced: A history of statues, and what if any meaning they hold”. The poremise is that the book covers what we know about the origins of statues in human cultrue, and the purposes they serve. In particular, there is a focus on the single person statue, and with that an intense questioning of if such relics hold any value whatsoever, especially when the persons depicted are unknown to those who see it. It’ll also incluide stuff about secular vs religious statues, abstract verses realistic, and of course, how statues of dogs always end up with super polished noses. Looks like an interesting project, so I’ll keep you up to date.
Oh and I still can’t tell you about Project4. But in a fortnight or so, I’ll probably know if it succeeded.
