Last night, on our way home, Jake and I found a large black Labrador running around in the street. He has no microchip and no tags on his collar, but very clearly has a home. We’re trying to find where he belongs. Can you help us?
The 2013 Annual Fund Thank You video for Duke University won a Horizon Interactive Award! This was a really exciting project to work on. I live very close to Duke’s campus and creating a map through the famous architecture and grounds was a lot of fun.
Subnature was initially applied to architecture—the idea that marginalized spaces and materials should not be rejected, but embraced. This concept was brought to food by the Nordic Food Lab in Copenhagen, a project born out of the world famous Restaurant NOMA. Duke partnered with the Nordic Food Lab when they decided to do a program on Subnature and Culinary Cuisine, which concluded with the Carolina Chefs Dinner at the Cotton Room—a beautifully renovated former cotton warehouse in Durham’s downtown Golden Belt development.
A well kept secret of Durham lives right across the street from one of the city’s most prestigious restaurants. What looks like a highway rest stop is actually the best homemade Mexican restaurant in the Triangle. La Vaquita, the funny looking building with the cow on the roof, may not be fancy but they serve up authentic and delicious Mexican cuisine every day of the week.
My first time at DPAC since moving to Durham, I was very excited to see the show. And because I haven’t been to many live theatre productions since college, I jumped at the chance to give this story another try. I’m glad I did.
