Saturday Sharing (My Finds Are Yours)

Regular readers of Saturday Sharing expect the eclectic and the unusual. There's a bit of both in today's edition, which offers "endangered sounds", a dip or two into alchemy, and "walking drawings".

✦ If you prefer your inspiration via video in 60-second sound bytes, visit Spark in 60, which claims to offer "a smattering of unique insights and experiences from the New York creative community". Make any choice; it will take you only a minute.

✦ Thanks to the Museum of Endangered Sounds, launched in January of this year, we'll never be able to forget the noises of products of our own making. Maintaining this site clearly is a labor of love.

✦ The musical aspects of language are showcased by the poetry publication Glass Seed Annual. The first issue is all about pantoums.

✦ The future of design is the focus of inhabitat, which tracks sustainable innovations in product, interior, and architectural design.

✭ Anything and everything to do with alchemy can be found at The Alchemy Website. The site's breadth and depth are astonishing. 

✦ Today's video feature is the trailer for  Evewright Studio's project Walking Drawings Across the Estuaries, described as "a series of live experimental art installations" for which the artist, Everton Wright, has created large-scale drawings on "sandscapes" along Britain's coast and then invited members of the public and horseriders to "walk their lines" to engage with the art. Read more about Walking Drawings. Signed, limited-edition prints of the beautiful (and ephemeral) sandscapes are available.
