Thoroughly Modern Office
What a crazy world we live in. One person can have at their fingertips the resources of thousands of workers a decade ago. During any week I can design logo, shoot and edit a video, manage a few hundred websites, do massive database work, hold online video conferences and a thousand other tasks. But around me are the friendly artifacts of the past to keep me anchored.

Assignment: Our theme this week, creative Framers, is “Your Desk”. You are more than welcome to interpret this theme literally and shoot the physical desk in your home. Maybe with a notebook, laptop and cup of coffee elegantly arranged on top of this desk. Or you can photograph the calligraphy, beadwork or architectural blueprints that you create on your desktop.Or maybe you can give your imagination free reign and think of your desktop merely as the base for anything that you create from this space! For thriller writers, their desk can be the floor of a murder scene, covered in blood stains. For developers, their desk can be the base of the matrix or part of a three-dimensional app. “Your” desk can also be interpreted as any place that you get your work done. Maybe it is a table at the local coffee shop, or a table at a plant nursery, an operating table, a prep table in a kitchen or that of a train or an aeroplane. Our humble desks not only provide us with a designated space to do our work but often also the anchor of our creative lives. It is time to create a beautiful album in its honor.
