The weekend is almost upon us, and after a full week researching immersive and interactive exhibitions ideas for science museums, I couldn’t be happier to relax in my plain, conventional, not-artistically-interesting-enough probably home. Here are some pieces of art, literature, and science that caught my attention this week if you are a reading mood.

Kindah Khalidy's playful paintings are so beautiful!

My friends "Whenhmetj”created a mixtape that never fails to lift my mood (the secret is the intersection of funk and disco).

“A Chinese manicurist in Miami attempts to describe feelings she doesn't have the words for”, what a beautiful short movie. (Thanks for showing it to me, Moriz.)

Are you for the second puberty of arcade games? Let me introduce you to pinball 2.0; the Flippaper.

What wouldn’t give to float on Space Time Foam, what an exquisite interactive exhibition.

Speaking of: “Melting Memories“ is a recent project by the media artist Refik Anadol, “data paintings comprise of augmented data sculptures and light projections, the project as a whole debuts new advances in technology that enable visitors to experience aesthetic interpretations of motor movements inside a human brain.”

If you devoured Netflix’s “Mindhunter”, you will know that there is a huge cultural true-crime obsession, that turns around psychopaths. But what is like living as a diagnosed psychopath?

Everything you need to know about picking a career, extremely elaborate as always.

Listening on the loop.

The sublime irony of the “You dropped a bomb on me” project, ah! Bravisimo, Olivia!

Trees Come “From Out Of The Air,” said Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman

“Yes, neoliberal feminism might acknowledge the gender wage gap and sexual harassment as signs of continued inequality. But the solutions it posits elide the structural and economic under-girding of these phenomena.”, a great article by Catherine Rottenberg, a sociology fellow at University of London.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at hello@inwhirlofinspiration.com, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
