Time
"The opposite of spare time is, I guess, occupied time. In my case I still don’t know what spare time is because all my time is occupied. It always has been and it is now. It’s occupied by living."
-Ursula K. Le Guin
50 Million People

OOOF! This is powerful singing.



Suspended Art

How is THIS for interactive art? A suspended tape structure that visitors can crawl through. It looks like a weird spiderweb and puts a lot of faith in the artist's engineering knowledge. Still cool.

Future Comfort


The Last Pencil Factor

A photo essay inside one of America's last pencil factories. There is something captivating about seeing the inner workings on everyday objects, don't you think?

Beginning is Underrated

"Merely beginning.
With inadequate preparation, because you will never be fully prepared.
With imperfect odds of success, because the odds are never perfect.
Begin. With the humility of someone who's not sure, and the excitement of someone who knows that it's possible."
-Seth Godin
