Cardboard lamps by Vera van Wolferen on Tumblr


Its days like today that make me think i might need to go back to writing myself daily ‘to do’ lists.

im getting the feeling there’s probably a heap of useful / meaningful things i could be doing but my mind is lacking direction. i did say the other day that i wanted to ‘just be’ but this wasn’t really the manifestation i was hoping for. 

Really looking forward to taking a trip to london town this week to check out the Pick Me Up festival at somerset house. Tis always an inspiring experience that reminds me of the main goal im working towards.

Feels good to be getting back into the creative loop.

Otomi Art in Querétaro | Mexico (by Boa Mistura)

The setting for Boa Mistura‘s latest project is La Colonia de las Américas on the outskirts of Querétaro, México. It is a humble community of working class people consisting of housing (much of which is self built) and small business: ‘misceláneas’ (grocery stores), taquerías, and cantinas. La Colonia de Las Américas is located across two sides of a hill, and has a ‘boomerang’ form overlooking the two main highways of the state; the ’5 de febrero’ road and ‘Bernardo Quintana’, which converge exactly at the apex of Las Américas — as a result the neighborhood is seen daily seen by thousands of people.


Spritz app lets you speed read books at 1,000 words per minute

Designed for integration with operating systems, wearables, and online use, Spritz has developed an application that allows users to read books at up-to 1,000 words per minute. The technology has been designed to enhance reading on mobile devices by streaming individual words using an ‘optimal recognition point’ (ORP) technique in a display known as a ‘redicle.’ This method essentially makes communication faster and more effective by removing inefficient eye movements associated with traditional reading. Spritz streams content in single word bursts, aligning text with your line of sight, which as as result, allows you to read without having to move your eyes.
