John Myers.

“What is on my desk: A Nikon microscope with a camera lucida attached, gin, specimens of Astargalus bisulcatus var. bisulcatus, coffee, a Tachikawa ink pen, 0.3 mechanical pencil, kneaded rubber erasers, monitor, mouse pad from the La Brea Tar Pits. The desk was designed (and built by J. Scheu) to store plant specimens and hold a heavy microscope stand. There is plenty of surface area to work: spread out and look at plants specimens (or to have dinner and watch shit on Hulu).

I love my desk, literally, there is a 5 cm opening…never mind.”
