Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #160

Start your Monday off right: 

  1. If paragliding wasnt extreme enough, Jean-Baptiste Chandelier takes it to another level in this video. Just watch it and be amazed. 
  2. Mike Kelley uses to a helicopter to capture the beautiful symmetry found at airports. The frames from the Mojave and Victorville boneyards are particularly impressive.
  3. Bartholomäus Traubeck modified a record player to turn the wooden patterns found in cross sections of trees into a piano music. The result is impressive to say the least. 
  4. If you travel the Portuguese country side, you can still find the shepard and his sheep roaming the hills just as Wilson Magalhaes did. The resulting series points to a life very different than our own. 
  5. "OVER THE COURSE OF OUR LIVES, WE MAKE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DECISIONS THAT ARE ESSENTIALLY BETS, SOME LARGE AND SOME SMALL. IT PAYS TO THINK ABOUT HOW WE MAKE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE WHAT ULTIMATELY DETERMINE THE QUALITY OF OUR LIVES."
    Ray Dalio
  6. If you're looking for a new notebook, the new Exposition Notebook looks absolutely fabulous. This will be my new notebook once I finish my current Rhodia Notebook. 

  7. Each note from a classical music piece is turned into a dot with the size indicating its duration and the color pointing to the instrument used. The result is these beautiful prints from Nicholas Rougeux

  8. Maxwell Tilse draws miniature versions of buildings all across Europe and photographs the illustration with the original building in the background. 

  9. I find Miles Davis speaking in a rare interview about jazz fascinating. His ideas can be applied to creativity in general.

  10. E.E. Cummings rightly points out how difficult it is to be yourself in a world trying to conform everyone to it.
