Seeking Inspiration Midair with @manonwethly

To see more of Manon’s artfully captured images of #flyingstuff, follow @manonwethly.

For Dutch designer Manon Wethlij (@manonwethly), the contents of her arresting #flyingstuff photos are less important than the conversations they provoke. “People are free to see or feel whatever they want in the shapes,” Manon says. “I love that they make people talk to me and ask questions.”

“I studied architecture for two years, then graphic design, but the thing that has always made me happy is photography.” When she found Instagram, Manon says, “it was exactly what I needed to keep my photography enthusiasm alive. I was taking lots of photos every day and just storing them in my computer for no one to see.”

These days, it’s the response to her photos on Instagram that keeps Manon evolving creatively. “Everybody’s enthusiasm encourages me to try new things,” she explains, “It’s sort of addictive.”

『子供の科学』の中にあった言葉。
「夜は昼とは別の場所にある。本当は夜というのは時間ではなく場所だ。私たちは毎日、地球という星に乗って昼という場所からぐるりと移動して、夜という場所へ行く」 という言葉に感動している。
これは時間と空間の本質を捉えた、実はとてもすごい言葉だ

「まとまった時間」は永遠にやってこない、とすれば、私たちができることは、大きな仕事を小さく分割して、日々のルーチンに埋め込むしかないのです。これが大きな仕事につながっていることを忘れるくらいに小さなルーチンに分割して埋め込むのです。
