Make Room For Discovery

I believe I have to make room to discover and push the boundaries of my creativity — at work and beyond. I try to carve out at least 10-15% of my work time and much more of my personal time to discover emerging trends, people and ideas.

Here are a few things piquing my curiosity these days:

Phantom Islands

As a composer, Andrew Pekler aims to make music that uses synthetic sounds to build real-seeming places. With electronic instruments, he creates the sound of wind, waves, bird calls, and insects. In his new work, an online, interactive soundscape called Phantom Islands, he marshals that idea to create a tour of islands that mapmakers once believed were real, but do not actually exist.
