Cat photos! :)

I have been saving photos of my various cats over the years on the site – I do have a separate folder away from the WordPress blog where I’ve uploading the photos as well as posting them on my blog.

Current cat: Ruby, who technically belongs to my brother but has mostly moved in with me. She’s a Burmese, who can be more than a bit grumpy and stand offish, plus has a tendency to bite or scratch when she’s had enough of a person or something. Plus she has increasingly bad arthritis in her shoulders which isn’t helping things ๐Ÿ™

My previous cat: Medea, who I got from the SPCA with my then flatmate when I was living on Wellington. Unfortunately she started going down hill health wise in 2014 and by Easter 2015 was mostly refusing to eat among other health issues she was in and out of the vet for, so… ๐Ÿ™

My parents’ previous cats: Harry (the ginger cat) and Pitch (the black cat), who they got when I was a teenager and still living at home so I’ve always considered them semi-mine too. (I’ve been saving their photos to this site as I had a lot of physical photos I’ve been scanning and then up-loading).

โ€œThe Cubic Structural Evolution project, 2004โ€

This is a repost of the photos I took at the Auckland Art Gallery in 2014 of a project which allowed the art gallery visitors to build a cityscape and change what had already been built. It was made up of white legos only and was originally created by Olafur Eliasson.

It was interesting because it was one of the few art exhibits that people could both freely touch and change, it was certainly popular and there always seemed to be people working on parts of it.

It had been set up in the mostly empty space next to the children’s section, that seems to be used for things like this, the children’s holiday art programs, and talks. (They also put Billy Apple’s cars up here when they had a display of his art works in early 2015 just after this display finished in the middle of March 2015).

They had set it up with a lot of the original buildings or structures already made and a lot of spare white lego spread out on the tables for people to make new buildings/structures or to add to the existing ones.

(I’m not planning on re-writing and reposting all of my old entries, I just wanted to redo this one as I’ve linked to this post from my “The Auckland Art Gallery’s children’s floor” somewhere else and want to have an actual page to link to).

New Version!

This is just a quick first post as I’m changing Great and Terrible to be a straight up personal blog ๐Ÿ™‚ All my other posts are gone now, but I have saved my photos at least ๐Ÿ™‚
