It’s Secretary’s Day—the more politically correct name is Administrative Professionals’ Day. And Mad Men, its feet still set firmly in the ’60s, is wishing you a very happy former (with a hashtag nod to the latter).
In a curious move, the AMC show’s Twitter account is celebrating the occasion with a photo featuring two former secretaries, Joan and Peggy. Why not use current secretaries Dawn and Shirley, both of whom had interesting arcs in this Sunday’s episode?

Design student Joyce Lin replicated a bird flapping its wings using simple machines and materials. The kinetic sculpture is entitled Study in Bird Motion and is made with popsicle sticks and mylar that resembles feathers. It’s activated by a hand crank, which sets the entire thing in motion and mesmerizes you as its movements resemble a bird gracefully taking flight.
Lin focuses her studies on furniture design and is enrolled in a dual-degree program at Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design. Although her sculpture is only a hand-held study (and was completed in her spare time), we can’t help but imagine what Lin’s other dynamic designs might look like.
