Week 284

A large chunk of my time this week was tak­en up with con­tribut­ing to E‑Motive Day, a con­fer­ence organ­ised by an inter­na­tion­al net­work of organ­i­sa­tions work­ing on social change of var­i­ous kinds.

Week 283

Week 281

To make the most of the first full work­week of the new year Alper arrived from Berlin to work with me at the Utrecht stu­dio on a num­ber of things. We kicked off our sec­ond project with KLM on Wednes­day. I went over to “build­ing 600” on Schiphol Noord to share our pre­lim­i­nary ideas for […]

Week 278–280

HNY! Well, we have three weeks worth of notes to catch up on. Week 278 got stuck in the mail because I was a bit too eager to dive into my Christ­mas hol­i­day. Week 279 and 280 were unevent­ful, as is to be expect­ed this time of year. Let’s get into it. I wrapped up and […]
