Carsten Holler - Experience - 235 Bowery
'His works are designed to explore the limits of human sensorial perception and logic through carefully controlled participatory experiences.' Basically I went down a big metal slide, sat on a carousel, put my head in a fish tank and wore some crazy goggles. It was all pretty good fun.

Miriam and I went to The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx today. We saw the world's largest pumpkins which are in the process of being carved by professional carvers in time for Halloween. It was a very calming place to take a break from the city although there was a constant hum of traffic and planes flying over every twenty minutes. On the way back to the subway, we stopped off at Edgar Allan Poe's cottage where Miriam held hands with a squirrel.

Day of the 28 year olds

Saturday day out with Miriam, Joe and Alice. We took the Subway to Brooklyn to go to Fort Greene Flea Market. Outside the market was parked a van with letterpress inside. It's owned by Kyle Durrie, a letterpress printer from Portland, Oregon. She bought a 1982 Chevy step van and converted it into a fully functional letterpress print shop and is now traveling around the US teaching printing and selling her work. We each had a go printing as she told us about her travels.

The City Reliquary, Williamsburg. A mini museum of antiques organised in a very pleasing way.

Miz likes this coat so she tries it on. It doesn't fit.

Lunch number two, meatballs at The Meatball Shop on Stanton Street. So very delicious.

Boat from Williamsburg to Dumbo.

Dumbo and walk back to Manhattan over Brooklyn Bridge.
