Celebrating the staff members of the Met, a stroll down journalism lane, data visualization, and tableware (specifically a very good knife).
Frequent Visitors is a weekly (ish) newsletter created to share the things we (over at Frequent Practice) have enjoyed visiting each week. Sometimes related to design, reads, and creativity. Sometimes related to anything else.
This Week’s Visits:
⑴ Absolute top of the To Visit List: “Since 1935, staff members working as a part of The Met community, many of whom are accomplished artists, have shared their creative contributions with each other on a regular basis. This year we are delighted to open this presentation of their work to the public.”
⑵ Taking a peak through The Atlantic’s recently updated archive (165 years of some excellent journalism + sexy covers).
⑶ This interview with Playlab, Inc on Chairs, Luxury & Ideas About What’s Normal (also, need this shirt).
⑷ The breathtaking short film Blue (2020) by dayday studio.
⑸ The “Occasional Object” tableware set by Alessi and Virgil Abloh, designed to offer a new perspective on the tools we eat with. Speaking of tableware, you will find me continuing to dream about this set by John Pawson (the KNIFE!!).
⑹ Revisiting the genius work of W. E. B. Du Bois, visionary author, activist, sociologist, and Pan-Africanist who saw data visualisation “as an opportunity to see Black life anew, to challenge prevailing orthodoxy and push for radical reform.”
That’s it for this week! Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoyed your visit :) We love having visitors as much as we love being them, so it would mean the world if you shared this newsletter with someone you think might enjoy it!
As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts + learn about some of your favourite finds by reading + responding to all of your replies to this email! Until then, we hope you’re having a wonderful summer + enjoy some lovely visits this weekend!
