9 beautiful spaces to convey the state of meditation📿
I’ve been enjoying some quality off-time this summer and investing some of it in meditation and other presence practices. Here, 9 visual artists create a beautiful meditative space to translate the mental state experienced in meditation to an external and immersive environment. Besides the amazing aesthetics and dreamy-mildly-surreal vibes, I hope they may inspire a flash of serenity and invite you to be with your calm too. Which space is your favorite?

Solar eclipse > Netflix 🌙👁️
Netflix felt the sting of the celestial event when its streaming dropped 10% around the time of the eclipse. Call me a hippie but I was happy to read that people preferred to watch the solar eclipse over their screens. Moon is winning yasss! 🌑
After the eclipse, Netflix concedes defeat against the moon
7 projects on the possibilities of sound interfaces 🎧✨
As the familiar touch interfaces are evolving into gesture, brain and other types of interfaces, one we less often speak or read of are sound interfaces. This article on Co.Design collected 7 cool experiments to illustrate the creative possibilities of sound UI.

Lessons from the biggest designers in the game 🎨🎒
In the spirit of “We must learn from others’ mistakes, for we will not live long enough to make them all ourselves” and the uprise of “fuck-up nights”, I’d like to share the following article which features gems on the failures + lessons from some of the biggest designers in the game.

Recommended read: Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens 📖🌍
I finished reading Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens last week and can tell you this is one of my new favorite books of all-time, cross-genre. Maybe it was my former lack of general knowledge in world history but this book made me see everything in a completely new light and has profoundly impacted my worldview. It fuses educational, inspiring, insightful, critical and funny elements as it chronicles the biological, political and cultural evolution of humankind. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to better understand the world around them and the fundaments of modern society.
