Experiencing Awe and Why Design Matters More than Moore

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of May 25th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Why Do We Experience Awe?: Through many activities that give us goose bumps — collective rituals, celebration, music and dance, religious gatherings and worship — awe might help shift our focus from our narrow self-interest to the interests of the group to which we belong.

Context Is The New Genre: How context is going to impact the future of music discovery and consumption.

The Best Way To Complain Is To Make Things: Tina Roth Eisenberg shares stories about how her labors of loves (aka side projects) redefined her career.

Why Design Matters More Than Moore: With all of the computing power already at our fingertips, we’re discovering that ever-faster technology may matter far less than beautiful, intuitive, easy-to-use products and services.

Products

Choz: A sort of hybrid that marries the social aspects of Instagram and the marketplace of eBay.

Pixtil: Weaving generative patterns using traditional textile techniques.

WellBe: Find out what your stress triggers are and learn personalized meditation and other well-being exercises to release stress immediately.

Visuals

What It Means To Be A Human In A Dataverse: Hannah Redler wants to examine how humans own and control their information within a dataverse.

A Snapshot Of Frieze New York 2015: To highlight those booths that surpassed the traditional art fair display, Selectism selected their five favorite booths at this year’s Frieze New York.

Meet Alain Vonck: The pixelated, retro-tech visual language of many of his self-initiated projects has taken cues from GIF revival and the unrefined aesthetic of the internet’s early days, carving him a niche as something of a digital archeologist.
