Every Monday, words to start the week. 

This week: Dear Data, a project by designers Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec, who are spending a year getting to know one another through the data they draw. Each week, the two decide on an area of their lives they'd like to explore, and exchange a card that illustrates seven days of experience as related to that topic. Above is a week of complaints; others have focused on clocks, physical contact, cell phone addiction,  and mirrors. See more, here.

Three more, just because:
-The first and last frames of fifty-five films.
-New ideas for psychiatric wards as designed by those who inhabit them. Stand-out features include a Staircase to Nowhere and  ceiling of umbrellas "upon which users can project their choice of weather."
-From Emerson, useful words for a Monday morning: "Break the monotony. Do something strange and extravagant."

More recommended reading, here. Have a happy Monday!

I love that the Asylum sketch had people requesting animals - magic healers! The First and Final frames was equal parts interesting and beautiful - thanks so much for sharing :)
