Scribble my school books
Pop culture is an accumulation of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, images, philosophy, music, design, art, and creativity gain popularity across the world in a faster way than ever before. Things and ideas become the standard of mass consumption in real-time. I have never in my life seen so many talented and skilled people around the world than on the net. Every day, I learn something brand new. And it seems like we are a little more helpful and friendly on the net as if we got a unique chance to make up for something terrible we might have done in the past. My favourite eye candies this week.
We live in the Electric Age
We live in the electronic age where the simple numbers of zeros and ones make the pattern of a spider web so fine-tuned that I can present today my favourite stuff around the globe shared with someone. The friendliness and definite vibe increase by sharing. Internet moving like a train that speeds into a night. I feel that this global university of teacher and students are continually evolving, and I believe it is the solution for a planet in lousy shape. Information develops wisdom.
What is the exact mixture? I do not know. However, I talk about what I like; sustainability, design eastern philosophies, develop happiness and spirituality. Every day more and more people sign up a green lifestyle, making a wave of Eco culture to more than just a fad. It is new times were we repair the things we own, sell, share and trade in our clothes, prolong the lifecycles of products, lowering our carbon footprint, It is no longer a trend to hold as many things possible, rather the opposite. Cherish small, and develop a lifestyle more in harmony with nature and ourselves; balance our life between overwhelming clinch to materialism in trade for a life based on spiritual values.
The Internet is creating the most significant movement in history
To reduce is art. It’s up to every one of us to take responsibility, from every single household, politicians, scientist, religious leaders, teachers, creative people, mega-corporations, you and me. If we can change or our consumer habits, develop sustainable products, less desire for material good we are on the right track. Nevertheless, corporations are responsible; and strive towards a sustainable future. Simplify our lives and maximize quality, share, rent and swap products, demand fashion and product built to last. Design for reuse, transform and recycle.
I believe that quality will replace price as the main driver for consumer products to coming years, increased consumer demand, less raw materials, more costly transportation and production leads to needing longer-lasting garments vs low-price. Try not to follow all trends simply because somebody told you. When a product demands unnecessary processes that make a negative impact on the environment. It is the consumer who decided hot or not. Wear-in and not worn-out jeans, do not buy brand new clothes already worn-out by design processes.
When designers develop and design brand new jeans, think of a concept with a mindset that is connected, to understand that every action and performance around the world are interconnected is most probably the most important sustainable design. Consumers take part, share, repair and make. The knowledge shared creates better solutions.
