Remember Franc Grom and his fragile easter eggs? These paper sculptures fall in the same category with a title “There’s no room for mistakes”.

Japanese artist Kiri Ken (ie. “Cutting Sword”) is creating fragile magic by cutting paper until she gets a desired form. Number of cuts is unimaginable and the result is a dreamy lace like paper artwork.

It would be good sometimes, to see that. A paper on your doorstep in the morning. You pick it up, make some coffee and sit down. You open the newspaper and there’s nothing. Nothing happened, there’s no news. What a relief. And then you wake up. 🙂

The series Nothing In The News is the work of Sideline Collective by Joseph Ernst and offers a little respite to information overload.

And you can also buy this newspaper, so you can have an empty news day anytime you want.

‘We offer the one thing you need more than anything else: “Nothing”. Absolutely nothing. Today, and today only, there is Nothing in the News. Enjoy it whilst you can,’ says Ernst.

This is one adorable couple. Valencia based couple Anna Devís and Daniel Rueda each have their own instagram accounts where they playfully explore shapes and structures of everyday life. They find an inventive visual story in architecture, where most of us would just pass by.

Clean witty images from their travels are a true inspirational boost in the Instagram timeline jungle of mediocre and unimaginative photos. These two are definitely on Instagram must follow list.

So, we all know how to separate recyclable trash by now. And we are kind of proud that we are doing something good for a planet. But do we really? We throw trash in fancy organized bins and forget about it. We don’t think about the unimaginable amounts of package we buy and then throw out.

That’s why photographer Antoine Repessé stopped throwing away his recyclable rubbish in 2011 to make a point. Four years later he started turning that trash into a series of photographs with a strong message. Powerful images confront us with a filthy reality of unimaginable piles of trash we produce. Yes our own trash is pilling up and we choose not to see it. We all recycle, that should be enough, right?

Antoine hopes his project can inspire a change. “We’re often told about the quantity of waste we produce, but I think the impact of a picture can be more powerful than a ton of words”.

Denmark more or less equals good design. There’s a whole lot of great designers in the country and countless businesses that do their best to export that good design to the world. One of the great things about visiting Copenhagen is that you can see that great design by yourself. 3daysofdesign event made doing just that a lot easier in the past few years. Designers and businesses open the doors of their studios and workshops for the public for three days every spring. There are dozens of places you can visit and numerous events you can attend. They even have a free bus and boat that you can use to get from one location to the other.

Heidi attended 3daysofdesign this year and we’ll show you some of the things we saw in the coming weeks and months. For a start here’s a promotional video from this years event and some photos we made. It goes without saying: we highly recommend visiting Copenhagen between May 24th and 26th next year when the next event is scheduled.
