Destination Journal 2013 Wrap-Up and 2014 Forward Thinking

December 22, 2013

Dina Mack

The year brought many chances to listen, taste, touch, see, and smell the world in small ways. Seven observations that still ring true to me in 2013 and a few hopes and musings for the New Year:

Not large and loud and with a big crowd. Hoping to continue with Destination Journal in 2014 on a small and intimate scale. Workshops and walks in unusual spaces are on the horizon

Going on a TrIP.  Looking forward to working on some new work based on the latest Corridor Project.

Book, books, books. Adding some new ones to my collection in 2014 and continue to use them as inspiration for Destination Journal. I particularly adore Visual Editions. 

Wrapping my arms around smell. Still learning, gathering, asking questions related to the sense of smell. Continuing to incorporate this and the other senses in my artwork and workshops. In 2014, I look forward to meeting, and perhaps even collaborating, with more experts on the smell front.

The studio and the swimming pool. More of both in 2014. Looking forward to reading Leanne Shapton’s Swimming Studies in 2014. Wrapping and unwrapping it this Christmas.

Little flowers, stems, pods, roots. I love you.

Dollhouse Timeshare. I am a proud, part-owner of a dollhouse. Next year is sure to bring small moments and big laughs to this tiny home within a home.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and thanks for reading!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that,
    this is wonderful blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
