Earth Cabinet Final Update

This is my final blog post as an Earth Cabinet Intern at the Institute.

Most of the known samples of earth that exist here have been put into our database. We have also started a collection of earth sample slabs. It is nice to see the earth organized.

I will never look at earth the same way again. Even on my recent trips around the country, I began to pay attention to the earth and how it is different from the earth I am used to in Los Angeles.

I hope that the database and the left-over raw material will be helpful for research or art in the future. It will be interesting to see what becomes of the Earth Cabinet, and how large it will grow to be.

I feel very lucky to have been able to be a part of such a unique collection and space. If you have the chance, do visit! It’s unlike any other place I’ve been to.

Goodbye for now!
