A walk through the convent
The Sisters of Providence buildings are a technological hodgepodge. New computers sit next to typewriters, old table-based sewing machines next to electronic ones, and giant dictionaries next to compact discs. It is certainly a study in contrasts, where decades of technology sit comfortably side by side.
In this photo album Christina Blust explores the technology in use in the SP convent at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Christina Blust is a designer, musician, reader and generally curious person. As a 2006-2007 AmeriCorps volunteer at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, she lived in Owens Hall for a year and learned the unique joys of wandering around the convent exploring. Now employed in Mission Advancement as the digital media and website manager for the Sisters of Providence, she gets to delve into the historical (and often humorous) wonders of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods on a daily basis.

These photos made me smile! Thanks much.
Quite a fun pictorial tour pointing out items we hardly notice. Delightful.
Paul and I certainly had fun wandering around and looking at everything with this specific lens. There’s so much to see when you pay attention!
