? We continue our report from 11/10/08, about the finishing work in Unit 9 of the East Crescent, with this report from planning coordinator Jenn Epstein of a new experiment.
“We are using ‘American Clay’ LOMA plaster, purchased from A.K.A. Green in Phoenix, for a portion of the wall in our new ADA unit currently under construction.
The clay plaster has a negative ionic charge, claimed to affect inhabitants mood, repels dust, as well as creating a latent heat flux within the space moderating the temperature.
For unit 9 we are using the Mauna Loa pigment with a sanded primer over drywall.

? We use hand texturing to impress a design into the plaster to make it more of a focal point of the room.”

? This report continues the week of Dec.8.2008.
