In July / by Kate England

ON MY MIND JUST NOW

  • The Ebb & Flow of Creativity: spontaneity, independence, innovation, singularity. 
  • Weekend Project: deep thoughts. 
  • On my Mind: Technoference. Together alone. The neo-liberal paradox of a time where we are lonely and at once hyperconnected. 
  • TED Talk: Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone? 
  • Palette: shades of swimming pool, cherries and raspberries. 
  • In my Kitchen: Watermelon salad with capers, olives, mint and feta cheese. Brie. Gazpacho. Iced latte with vanilla. 
  • Listening to: Jason Isbell and Johan Airijoki. Alabama meets Gällivare, Neil Young, and Norwegian Wood in the work of these soulful singer-songwriters.  
  • Film: The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant 
  • Quote: Paul Valéry: "L'homme est animal enfermé - à l'extérieur de sa cage. Il s'agite hors de soi."
  • Reading: Bodil Malmsten: Så gör jag and 10tal: Förtrollning. Fantasier om en annan ordning. (The Re-Enchantment of the World), Sherry TurkleReclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age. (Tillbaka till samtalet – samtalets kraft i en digital tid.) 
  • Scent: vanilla, raspberry. 
  • On my balcony: pigeons trying to steal the blackcurrants.
