There is little work I would show on our first meeting. I have just been collecting relics of Pluto before its status as a planet was withdrawn in 2006. See attached of a purchase I made yesterday, an object from 1951. There are many such relics still available. Outdated models of solar systems and even music made for Pluto. "Hawaiian" style planet shirts, classroom posters etc. I don't know yet if this will amount to a...project...It's story just seems to encapsulate a few of the things I am thinking about -- a very recent experience of a jolt to a bit of collective knowledge, categorizing fallacies, making a physical experience of information (of a place impossible to reach). And still so much available ephemera to create a funny little memorial but to a status...since Pluto of course still exists. Not quite the the discovery of a round earth or heliocentrism, but I like these smaller stories, as when Pope Gregory called for skipping 10 whole days (the subject of my newspaper project; each page reporting just each disappeared date, and a translation of inter-gravissimas). I imagine a kind of reading room where the only reading will be the newspaper and the missing dates.
