Welcome to a new issue of Inspired By. It’s been a while, but I finally made time to collect all the awesome stuff I found online that I want to share with you. Let’s dive in! 🤿
Simon Collison launched Site Nonsite, his multimedia project documenting connections to place. He’s revisiting decades of research and ideas to form new works. The first of four projects documenting his travels in Japan is Hiroshima EP, a love letter to Hiroshima, a city writing a new history.
I loved reading his detailed travelog while lisiting to the ambiant music he made, mixed with japanese street sounds. It’s available to stream or download, and there’s even a special edition cassette that includes mini fold-out locations map, track-by-track notes and translations, diary and ephemera gallery, holographic sticker, origami paper and instructions.
This work makes me so happy! The illustrations, colors, type… I love everything about it.
This oscar-winning short documentary is about Lusia Harris who dominated in high school, led a small university to three consecutive national basketball championships, scored the first basket in Olympics women’s basketball history, is the only woman ever officially drafted by an NBA team, and was inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame.
About 3 months ago, Steve created a National Park inspired design as an outlet to refuel his creative juices and to work on something that was just plain fun and exciting.
He made it a goal to finish all 63 parks and to complete one park within a day or 2. He also constrained himself to use only one line thickness for each park which was fun but also very challenging.
$3 of each print will be donated to the National Park Foundation.
Harmen is back with another beautiful ambient film without dialog.
“In March 2022 I solo hiked for 8-days in the Drakensberg mountains on the border of South Africa and Lesotho. Favorite hike in the world. The weather, terrain, views, people and remoteness make this hike really unique. Also the most challenging hike to date.”
I’m not a spiritual person (I think?) but this webshop by Terry & Frank Back (designer at Headspace) sure looks interesting. They call it ’meditative streetwear’.
