Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #186

Start your Monday off right:

  1. My biggest food weakness is Asian noodles. I love it all. Naturally, I was fascinated watching these two different chefs make very different type of noodles starting from just flour and water. Now I am hungry. 
  2. The National Geographic travel photographs of the year is an impressive collection of photographs. My favorite is the black and white image from inside of a trolley car in Japan.  
  3. Tortus Copenhagen is a ceramic artist who created a memorizing video of clay being thrown on a wheel. Its easy to get lost in the spinning clay. 
  4. Adobe recreated lost fonts from the legendary Bauhaus school of design. I also love this service that turns your handwriting into a font. I strongly considering doing this. 
  5. Fiona Struengmann bought 7K photographs collected over 50 years at a flea market and physically alters the images to produce her work. 
  6. “Time and again I was seeing that if I could handle the winds of the current storm, they would end up blowing in some great gift … Challenging situations create the force needed to bring about change. The problem is that we generally use all the stirred up energy intended to bring about change, to resist change. I was learning to sit quietly in the midst of the howling winds and wait to see what constructing action was being asked of me.”
    – Michael Singer
  7. Zach Wolfe turned his love of hip-hop into a career as a portrait photographer documenting the whose who of hip-hop. I had never heard of Zach before but I have definitely seen some of these images. 

  8. The street art festival, Pow Wow, returned to Hawaii. I love watching artist paint giant murals. 

  9. Sam Parkes traveled through the high plateaus of central Mexico to the Southern tip of Tierra Del Fuego with his trusty camera showing a different side of Mexico. 

  10. Italian photographer, Mario Carnicelli, traveled to the USA in the 1960s and produced this body of work which was recently rediscovered after 50 years. It feels like Mad Men came to life.
