Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #158

Start your Monday off right:

  1. Tater tot hotdish immediately takes me to Minnesota sitting around a table catching up with my aunts. uncles, and cousins. The dish feels perfect now that the weather dipped below freezing. 
  2. While visiting one of my best friends, he handed me a cookbook and said, "If you dont owe this, I buying this for you for Christmas." Samin Nosrat's Salt Fat Acid Heat was not only informative but also beautifully done. The collaboration between her and the water color artist was top notch. 
  3. MoMA in NYC pulls back the curtain on life in the Museum with their new series, At The Museum. I will be binge watching these later this week. 
  4. I cant believe Fabio Zingg is only 18 years old considering the images he is creating traveling around Europe. For another instagram recommendation, check out Mikael Stahl
  5. Designers are starting to look to nature to solve problems such as the noise the bullet train made exiting tunnels in Japan. As our problems grow more complex, biomimicry is growing practice.  
  6. Tom Wallisch skies down the streets of Nelson, British Columbia in this insane video. I cant imagine the work required to organize and execute this video. 
  7. “No one is going to stand up and hand you a plate of progress in life. You must make progress by your own sheer will, discipline, and efforts every day.”
    – Brendon Burchard
  8. Oliver Sacks, a great neurologist and poet of science, speaks to how imitation is the root of creativity in The River of Consciousness.    

  9. Mary Iverson blends found photography with oil and acrylic paint, ink to produce these beautiful geometric paintings. 

  10. There is a tension between getting work done and the experimental play required for creative work.
