I found this thistle on a small plaque on a drinking fountain at Reed.

This project is training me to see things in a whole new way and focus in on some tiny details I may have otherwise overlooked. I have sipped from this fountain many times, but I never noticed the thistle before.

There is subtle relief every where. I am becoming obsessed with texture and the way things feel. I’m starting to analyze everything by whether or not I can …  Rub it!
