“Because, over the years, I’ve shared so much of myself online: my apartment, my clothes, and in the somewhat near future, my book. While not a diary by definition, it’s a vessel that contains stories I never thought would see the light of day. It’s hard work, and as someone who’s still getting used to the idea of having readers, ‘sharing’ is now a nuanced practice. But by putting pen to paper, I’ve noticed I’d rather share in the direction of genuine connection than pure aesthetic consumption.”

Hear from leading artists and innovators who share slow stories—and big ideas—about living, working, and creating in our digital age.
“I have this thing that I always say, which is: ‘If you want to figure out what a culture cares about, look at what they find beautiful.’ For me, beauty has always been a way to discuss culture and vice versa.”
