This is a series I’ve known for a while, but got recently remembered of. These pictures are collected by Erik Kessels, who is known for being the head of advertising agency KesselsKramer, a graphic designer, curator and last but not least, he is a photo collector.
The pictures above are part of a series of photo books called “In Almost Every Picture" and show the story of a family’s attempt to photograph their beloved black dog over several decades. The lack of light and the camera’s limitations make the dog seem like a vague blob over and over. We see the husband stroking a silhouette and the wife playfully in conversation with what seems to be a big black triangle.
Just when you think we will never get to see the dog, the couples perseverance seems to have paid off as he finally gets revealed in the last picture.
The clock knits for 24 hours a day for 365 days. One day equals one round on the scarf, and after a year the clock has turned the passed year into a 2 metre long scarf. You can carry the past year with you in this unique physical representation of time.
Once a scarf is finished, a new year is waiting to be unraveled in a new spool of thread. Also, the clock is fully functional and able to give the correct time.

"By creating an enclosed space HUSH provides a personal retreat, a luxurious escape into a dark, hushed, natural space in the midst of a busy hotel, airport, office or library. HUSH provides a quiet space in an age of exponential population growth, where privacy and peaceful respite is an increasingly precious commodity."
And that’s not all. The pod is constructed entirely from biodegradable materials. The main body of HUSH is cut from a single piece of 10mm industrial wool felt. Wool is naturally flame retardant, breathable, durable and elastic; it is also multi-climatic, meaning it is warm when the environment is cold and cool when it’s warm. How great!
Time for me to start saving up for one of these :)
