Time is slipping through our fingers. 24 hours in a day just don’t seem to be enough. The ticking hands of the clock are getting on your nerves, am I right?
‘Deal with it’, is how the clock would answer you. Don’t let it distract you. But it isn’t as simple as that. Is there a way to change it? Well, you could just throw away the batteries of your clock and act like you have unlimited hours in a day, but I’m afraid that your boss and the rest of your social network won’t appreciate it.
But gladly I’m not writing this for nothing. The French designer Bina Baitel created the Lash Clock. The main purpose is that she wants to display the speed of the time as quiet as possible.
The clock radiates a meditative atmosphere. The design reminds us of an eye with lashes. If you take a good look at it, you see that there is a space at two places between the hairs. The larger space represents the hour, while the smaller space shows the minutes.
I simply love this design! The Western world is very focused on time. When people have been traveling in Asia for example, they have to get used to this ‘rushed’ lifestyle when they get back. Hopefully this will make us a little more zen.
The exhibition ‘All you can feel’ by Sarah Schönfeld shows how drugs look under the microscope. The exhibition isn’t designed with an informative purpose, rather artistically. The photos expose the physiological and psychological inconstancy of drugs when they are in the body.
The photos are cool, because it is not just art. When you see the photos, you recognize an interface between the bizarre looking substance of the drugs and the effects of drugs on human beings.
The exhibition is part of the transparency trend. The photos don’t literally show the effects of drugs, but I think that ís exactly what Sarah Schönfeld wants to achieve. The photos portray the feeling. She is an artist and photographer, she chooses the unusual way.
I think exhibitions like these have Future Growth Potential, because the use of drugs shouldn’t be taboo. The openness and honesty will contribute to reduce the ignorance of the effects and hazards of drugs.
Whatever the intention of the photos was, they are inspiring anyway. So take a look at these drugs if you’d like to!
