daydreaming

you might remember james meadows from a few weeks ago. this test was found stuck in the middle of the math text book, which the cover came from, and i just had to give him an excuse to ease the poor grade. math tests are hard for dreamers.

  1. Ooh, I like. And that was me in math class...drawing in the margins and wishing I were somewhere else.

    Except in college - my sweetie is a programmer/math guy and he explained things differently so I understood and I did great, so I guess I'm not totally incapable of doing it. I'm still bitter about grade school :P

  2. thanks janelle! i'm told that there are a million ways to think about and reason mathematics and that you just have to find the right path for you. it sounds like you actually did that! that's really cool. i love geometry but in school wouldn't have missed the rest of it if it had been left out. :p

  3. That is so gorgeous, Hollie. My new favourite phrase "Math tests are hard for dreamers"... I think I might put it on a t-shirt :) Kx

  4. I think any tests are hard for dreamers. I was quite good in maths in the early days of school, then each year the day dreaming increased dramatically! Looks like the test was printed by a gestetner - those wonderful roller printers filled with turps (I think). I was part of an artist run space about 15 years ago, and we used one to print our invitations for the first year. Then we got sick of getting high from the fumes!! Very lovely composition on a sensational piece of found paper.

  6. That's really fun. You even used the standard grade school blue-lined paper for the kids' desktops and little tiny sheets of paper on top. Nice touch!
