I moved into my new studio this week. So far I have spent every day here and it feels great.
The studio itself is 26sq meters.
The view from out my window is great...
This week I have cut and printed 4 blocks. So far my interest in Berlin resides in the contrast between the vacated and abandoned spaces that are so common in the city and the ultra modern/ well preserved buildings that fill in the remaining space in the city.

In other news:
I broke my Ipod yesterday, which is severely disheartening. If anyone wants to salvage my state of mind that mimics the state of my ipod I am accepting donations for a new one or help fixing my existing one. Either scenario would help.
I also got a new bike last week.
It is an Express Werke frame from the 50's with a working dynamo front hub that powers the front wheel. The gear ratio is perfect for how flat Berlin is. It also has a Brooks saddle. I didn't know what all of the Brooks fanatics were talking about until I found myself thinking "damn, my ass feels great!" on my ride to the studio ysterday.
That's all for now.
