After all the slicing away, you may realize, now that you can clearly see the idea, that it’s actually not very good.
That’s the hardest part: letting go of an idea that, having spent a number of passionate nights with, you have fallen in love with. Even with a certain amount of routine, this letting go sadly doesn’t become easier. The natural instinct then is to rely on what you know is working. It’s unfair, but this is the surest path to boring and predictable results.
The painful and inevitable struggle remains to create in a childlike and openhearted manner, but to be un-wistful and cruel when judging one’s creation.

A innovative way to bring stories and history to life. Based on interviews and scans these full-body holograms of Holocaust survivors have SIRI-like voice recognition software so they can answer questions. (via Holocaust stories preserved through interactive 3D holograms | The Verge.)
The Met will produce 100 episodes of 82nd and Fifth over the course of this year. Each one features a curator talking about an object that changed the way they see the world. The episodes consist of a video and an extra like a rotating photo of the object. The site is responsive, and visitors can sign up for an e-mail alert when the next one is published. I really like this, hopefully it will evolve so it is easier to discover, and is a bit more more social. It would have been nice to be able to embed at least an excerpt. 82nd & Fifth | The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
