Whoo, time flies. More than forty days have passed since the previous post. This to-do-list symbolizes the quite busy summer I’ve had. Busy, but fun and with some ‘hopscotching’ time too. Image via Froot
I’m so anxious about how this project will end; ‘40 days of dating’ by Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman. As an experiment the two good friends, with opposite relationship problems, dated for 40 days. “It’s been said that it takes 40 days to change a bad habit. In an attempt to explore and hopefully overcome… Continue reading opposite
A little fun project on show today. I’ve gladly participated in a print-workshop ‘so you think you can print’ initiated by nieuweklasse*. It was a bit of trip down memorylane but it sure was a nice inter- ruption of all the web-oriëntated work of today’s life. It’s always kind of great to work with the… Continue reading back to basics

As part of Hong Kong’s ‘Bienniale of Urbanism and Architecture’ the French-Portuguese architect Didier Fiuza Faustino designed this wonderful swing set ‘Double Happiness’. This ‘real-life-acting’ billboard feels like a nice break-free-addition to escape for some playtime. Must be fun to use. via flavorwire
And wow, does time fly. This Expedia campaign cleverly visualizes my share amount of travelling these last days, ahum… weeks. I had quite a few very inspiring trips and could do for a holiday and a tan ;-) The stamps in the corner adding an extra bit of content to the airport IATA codes are… Continue reading a matter of time
Fun! This series of urban and rural landscape pictures with ‘Momo’ hiding somewhere in the frame.

Striking, intriguing beauty; this first film production ‘lina’ by Thirza Schaap. Just astounded by her mind’s eye and her soft, quirky touch in both styling and images.
… and let the new year in. Let 2013 be filled with a lot of surprises alike this captured moment by Richard Peters. Putting your windows wide open is a old superstitious ritual to let happiness in.
In this contemplative end-of-year mood these serene, soft pictures of the ‘Full Moon Story’ by Kim Kyoungsoo is the spot-on visualisation. Asked by Vogue Korea he realized a series of portraits that re-actualizes the traditional Korean ‘Hanbok’. Which many Korean people are wearing during the National traditional festivities ‘Chuseok’.

Just astonishing these gif’s by rrrrrrrrr_gif; a group of gif-makers from Japan. They make and share a new gif every week and are creating a beautiful surreal collection. A hypnotizing pelican light, that’s just what a girl needs in these short, dark ‘end-of-year’ days. via Thefoxisblack
Must be so funny walking, jumping or is it climbing in this interactive installation ‘on space time foam’ by Tomás Saraceno at the Hangar Bicocca in Milan. The installation invites visitors to take a leap of faith onto a series of transparent membranes up in the air at 24 meters height. Because of gravity, weight… Continue reading beat the air
Just delicate this handkerchief from the ‘unfamiliar handkerchief’ series designed by Frieda Mellema of LAB 71. Her designs are more original creations, no slick design rather objects of art. She truly succeeds in creating the dreamy naive world that inspires and makes you happy. It certainly does that to me. Bless you!
