ETEMENANKI I

 

Build a cabin in the woods
Live in it for one month
Read Thoreau and rewrite Walden
Draw other people’s cabins
Observe the shadows of the leaves on my roof
and invite people to join me

 

 

“Who knows but if men constructed their dwellings with their own hands, and provided food for themselves and their families simply and honestly enough, the poetic faculty would be universally developed.” (Henry David Thoreau, Walden)

The most interesting dwellings (…), are the most unpretending, humble log huts and the cottages of the poor commonly; it is the life of the inhabitants whose shells they are (…) and equally interesting will be the citizen’s suburban box, when his life shall be as simple and as agreeable to the imagination and there is little straining after effect in the style of his dwelling. (Henry David Thoreau, Walden)
