Respecting Art Galleries
Jennifer rocks! But the rest of us probably shouldn’t try that at home! Or at least not in any Art Galleries or Museums. The security guards will probably throw us out!
And when we’re in the SOA Galleries, please be really careful about the art. Please don’t touch it! If you’ve got a backpack on, be mindful of how much is behind you when you’re backing up to take a photo. Don’t lean on the walls or use the walls as a surface to put paper on to write on. Thank you for your care!

Activity: Deep Ethnography
The electric grid and the light bulb as we know them today are each around 100 years old. Your parents and grandparents may have known them as you do, but before 1915 or so, for 99,900 years or so, human beings did not. Obviously The Internet and Mobile Devices are much younger. In your 20-or-so years of life I’m sure you’ve seen change, but you’ve also had the constancy of light and electricity as your backdrop. Even though virtually none of the human beings who preceded you on this earth ever did.
What was human life like before electricity & the light bulb?
That’s a pretty huge question to ask. But we can get a small piece of an answer by spending one night in a time-traveling ethnographic adventure. See our Deep Ethnography Activity brief for full details!
Kayla Improves Her View
Kayla Sanchez was bored with the view out her window. So she used this week’s Activity to change a plain brick wall into something she enjoys looking at each morning when she opens the blinds:
