the global curtain

As long as the world is turning and spinning, we're gonna be dizzy and we're gonna make mistakes. -- Mel Brooks


Made the same way as the snowflake curtains, the global curtains, too, are always in motion. But where the snowflakes flutter oh-so slowly, these turn and spin more forcefully. Like real life on real Earth.


Interesting that watching them is so entrancing -- the Earth is not so big, so frightening, so volatile for those few seconds.

Be safe, be still, wherever you are. xo

Deb, making this can nearly put you in flow!

Cindy, oh most definitely -- I've seen it around. Maybe not as curtains but map paper is sort of making the scene lately. I used an old atlas so both sides are maps.

Marie, yes -- stars would be lovely!

Thanks, Nat, it's fun to make something with paper for a change -- I love map paper, any color, any size!
