I read a lot of environmental blogs and need help parsing through the info. But I also get awfully depressed once I come out the other end. So, the ECO NEWS TICKER keeps things balanced, the good and the bad in tandem. Because it does feel like the glass is half empty these days.

I have finally posted a few of my photographs from my ongoing Superfund series. I have been working on this for nearly two years now, so about time, I know. The initial image download may be slow — be patient. Will get the kinks worked out tomorrow hopefully.

Oh, yeah, the URL: http://www.bsing.net/superfund_photo.html !!

While in San Francisco over the holidays, I was able to get back to Hunter’s Point and shoot some more. The Navy granted me access to most of the Superfund site, except portions that have yet to undergo remediation or are too dilapidated. I noticed a considerable amount of change since I was there last July. The cleanup seems to be moving fast, which makes me think that construction of a new 49ers football stadium might be in the not so distant future. Here are some keel blocks that were once used at the dry docks (shot with my iphone). My 4×5 negatives are still at the lab…

Stefani Bardin and I launched The Counter Kitchen at Eyebeam in Dec 2010. We started with a day-long workshop with NYC high school students from Hunter Math & Science. They brought their favorite food and home products (such as Strawberry Poptarts, Diet Coke, Johnson’s Baby Lotion and Axe Shampoo) for us to reverse engineer together. We got to work mapping out the ingredients — learning where they come from and what they do. Then the students re-labeled their products based on research. Pesticides in your Poptarts anyone? 10% petroleum filling and 90% question mark!? Where’s the berry? Fun stuff!! Oh, and we made some gatorade and toothpaste from scratch too. They both got “thumbs up” from our super tasters (the students).

 

Where you will find news and upcoming events and other tidbits from me (Brooke Singer / aka admin). New Year’s Resolution 2011 = to not be such a delinquent regarding my website and cyber presence. Giving it a go, again.
