A lovely gift from the Netherlands. These wooden blocks designed for form various animals can be used as a way of thinking about other projects. Small, loosely connected pieces forming something much more.

You know that feeling when you think you’ve seen this before? History and art tend to repeat themselves in ideas, but just in a new context with a new focus.
Another double weeknote. This time we had a short trip abroad for some on-site training and then some research and needs assessment with a local company for one of our future projects.
This week has been about hustling. Getting organized and working on proposals. It is a fine balance to find where your next invoice will come from and doing the work. The freelancer’s hunter/gatherer life-style hit hard this week.
Moving from bits to atoms every once and awhile has its advantages. We spent several hours over the course of a few weeks putting together a massive bead art project. From code to pattern generation to ironing them together, we learnt a lot about the issues, tolerances and resilience of these tiny plastic beads.
