Both Oil on wooden box
I’m graduating in May and as a sort of physical documentation of my undergraduate career (i.e. slow descent into madness), I’m photographing my notebooks and inflicting them on you. This one is from 2011.

Kowloon Walled City | A population density nightmare
Kowloon Walled City was a largely ungoverned Chinese settlement in Kowloon, Hong Kong, comprising of 350 interconnected high-rise buildings where 33,000 residents lived within a plot measuring just 210 meter by 120 meter. Originally a Chinese military fort, the Walled City became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. Its population increased dramatically following the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II and reached a peak of 33,000 residents in 1987. When it was demolished in 1993-94, it was thought to be the most densely populated place on earth.
Astronauts who have gone on spacewalks describe the smell of space as an “acrid aroma of seared steak, hot metal and welding fumes”. They can’t smell it while they’re out there as space suits are (obviously) airtight. But when they return and take off their helmets, this is the odor that greets them.
NASA has actually recreated the aroma for training purposes, and Steven Pearce, a chemist involved in the process has suggested that the metallic aspect of the scent may come from high-energy vibrations of ions.
whoa now man
