#30. If you, like me are stuck at home due to school or your museum closing because of COVID-19, a great exercise in relieving boredom is creating exhibits out of a collection of items in your own home, like funko pops, collector spoons, shot glasses etc. The research itself can lead you down some interesting rabbit holes.

“It’s perfectly possible to enjoy a good, civilized, person-to-person conversation with a picture on a museum wall. Talk to it, listen carefully, and it will more than likely talk back to you.”
- Peter Clothier, ‘Slow Looking: The Art of Looking At Art’
Working on material culture is wild. My day job can be summed up as “I touch spacecraft to learn more about them”. It surprises a lot of people!
