Sarah Di Domenico bought a tin trunk at a store closing sale and found inside hundreds of handwritten love letters addressed to the same man. All dated throughout the 1950s, written by many women. She read them all and identified one great love. This complete stranger of years past, Omar, soon became a new man in her life.
She transcribed the letters, uprooted lost photographs, and photographed pieces of ephemera from 1940s maps to passports to thing-a-ma-bobs. A Young Man’s Follies is a website that documents and shares each handwritten letter and all of these pieces (except 1 pair of ladies underwear).
Play relationship voyeur and fall in love with a time when love was made by pen and ink.
‘SO ME THING’ is an interactive installation by StudioSpass created for the exhibition ‘Do it’ at Kunsthal Rotterdam 2015. The installation invites visitors to tear of sheets of paper to create their own (read ‘so me’) typographic composition. By doing so visitors playfully discover all the hidden designed typographic layers. The message So Me Thing remains readable till the last layer is removed.
Last night I learned abut the existence of Senior Planet, think co-working space for people 60 and up. Senior Planets host free classes, workshops, talks and social and cultural events, offering older New Yorkers the chance to learn, work and explore new ways to thrive in today’s digital world. YES!
This video on the CreativeMornings/San Diego chapter just took my breath away. It’s been almost 8 years since I had the simple idea of opening my co-working space to host a small breakfast gathering. And now, it has spread in over 55 countries, happening in 133 cities every month. Put on by our incredible hosts and their volunteer teams. The world is a magical place. You just have to find your people. So much love for this community.
Read by Famous sells books that were owned and read by people who have achieved high levels of recognition in their particular fields. Not copies of titles they have read, but the actual books that these people owned and read. The proceeds from the sales benefit book and literacy focused non-profits.
The folks behind Red Paper Plane believe that “Missions” are a whole new way to learn and play for little ones. They created mission based design challenges for the whole family, based on a creative process – 20 minutes per day for several days. This is fantastic! Especially for snowy winter weekends!
