There is a kind of perspective we can acquire only after fully appreciating the depths of intimate connection, the ups and downs of meaningful relationships. Our reflection curated this week by Tessa Travis of Project Fathom.

Here's a project from developer web crush Sarah Hallacher. Pulling from popular searches and common forms of digital communication she imagines a romance gone south and how that manifests in personal information and communications online. 
"User Experience of a Heartbreak is a series of animations documenting the ways in which our use of and feelings toward technology might change during a breakup, and how couples can remain digitally intertwined after separating. Additionally, it questions the occasional inhumane nature of algorithms and their overwhelming presence in our everyday lives & interactions."
Here's a very personal project coming from our talented design intern Joanna Lobel. Incredibly insightful, here's her take on entering the age of technology and romance. 
"These posters are imagined as covers for a book written about how social media affects our sex, love and fantasy lives—the good, the bad, and the ugly. We are the social media generation, and these are our stories. I had my first boyfriend when I was 14 and when it ended I was suddenly thrown into the dating world. One that I had never seen before, filled with texting, profiles, pictures and online dating. I found that I could enter the dating world through the safety of my computer screen. I have some horrible stories from that first year, stalkers who got my number and wouldn't stop calling, some photos sent that I will never un-see, and too many coffee dates. It ended with a new relationship and although the story is still being written I can look back on my experiences in the technologically 'advanced' dating world and laugh a little. I'm not the only person going through this."

Lastly, what's it like when the real love of your life, your phone, breaks up with you? "The Life and Death of an iPhone" by Paul Trillo views life through the "eye" of an iPhone. What happens when it's born, when it lives, it parties, it gets lost and found and broken? Our hero experiences the ups and downs of an Apple relationship. 

As part of my own efforts to remember meaningful relationships, each Composure scarf is made and worn to reflect on the stories of people with perspectives worth embodying. Scarves and stories at

Uncertainty plagues all meaningful pursuits; if we are to do our best work in the face of uncertainty, perhaps we must first hone perspectives that allow us to stay the creative path. This week, connection.
