Creative Findings #3: Things done differently

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared my favourite findings on the web. This time around, I’ve collected 5 lovely projects that cherish things off the beaten path. A brief look at people, who’re thinking over routines and standards and embrace new ways to inspire. Read about things done differently. Sirene Journal is an exciting new Italian magazine that seeks to explore human relationships with the sea – all beautifully printed on algae. How true to the word is that?

Creative Findings #1: Of Scavengers, Departures, Globe Makers & Generative Illustrations

I suppose I’m quite an avid list maker. I keep track of pretty much everything from the creative sphere. Artists I’d love to feature. Interviews to take on. Articles to read. Places to explore. Themes or topics to write about. Exhibitions to visit. And of course, there’s all this fascinating stuff floating about on the web that ends up on my bookmark section & it would be a shame not to share with people out here. So that’s this week’s bite-sized selection of inspiring, attention-grabbing things. Round #1, here we go! The good folk at Colossal have recently featured this beautiful series of works by Janusz Jurek that explores the different forms of generative illustration as it relates to the human shape. Looks smashing, doesn’t it? Photographer Emilie van Camp has shared her fab photo essay Diary of a Weekend on tête-à-tête & PLATE. Beautiful wintery images accompanied by beautiful words of contemplation, thoughts about departures, new beginnings and embracing change. Read it here.
