Since I arrived at the Djerassi residency I have been particularly fascinated by the fog that rolls up the mountains at night (I guess you can tell it’s my first time on the West coast) so I have been drawing and thinking a lot about fog lately.
Got the electroporator to Djerassi Scientific Delirium residency... Considering using my sperm... And some centipedes" DNA... Wondering if you have any sense as to a DIY sperm salt rinse media/protocol and refresh media... I mean like Gatorade grade materials... I'm way out in the mountains.

Dear National Science Foundation,
You were everything I ever wanted
when I was finishing my Ph.D. and I
have no idea why I didn’t pursue you further.
I liked the way you asked me how I liked
my research. You even asked about the percent
of the checks for my apparatus versus travel
and what went to my father University—
the modern dowry— still sexy in a vintage lingerie

I did not have a website for a long time. It’s not that I did not know how to make one or that I did not understand how important it was, it was simply that I did not know how to tell people who I was. I was happy to write but not to fill in the "About" section or even to add a link to be co. Should I say I am a poet? A curator? A social scientist who studies science and art? A STEAM education advocate?
I am considering the option of using the centiSperm as a glaze. Not for cupcakes although that came to mind. After electroporating raw centipede DNA into the germ cells, they could be used as a glaze for a fired ceramic sculpture. What came to mind was a sculpture commemorating Uranus’ castrated penis.
