The windstorm a few months back left my neighborhood – and yard – strewn with branches from all kinds of trees. A pine tree down the street was one of the many local casualties, though we benefited from this loss in the form of a lovely new pinewood bench for our garden.

I recently went to visit Andrea Zittel’s home/workspace in Joshua Tree, A-Z West, which articulates a fascinating collision between making, working, and living. I was particularly struck by the shelving she creates out of shipping boxes, layered with plastered gauze and strong enough to hold up huge stacks of books.
