Unfolded

Spotted last Thursday night at Dashwood bookstore was Amsterdam-based photography couple, Maurice Scheltens & Liesbeth Abbenes.  Fresh off their first retrospective exhibition at Museum Jan Cunen, they were lending their John Hancock's to their newest book Unfolded - Scheltens and Abbenes.

Unfolded allows you to delve deep into the exhibition just by turning to the next page. While offering views of the museum and the elegantly placed work of Scheltens & Abbenes, you're then thrust into the very textures of the museum walls and prints that adorn it. The experience of Unfolded is similar to navigating a cyber space, like that of the Google Art Project, yet in your very hand. It is curated with a distinctive and decisive point of view that directs the viewers throughout the pages. The museum in the book is quiet and there is no closing time. It provides a precious solitude complimenting Scheltens & Abbenes' minimal and carefully composed work.

  1. Writing is a process which needs silence. The best in you comes out when the background is completely empty. Simply means the silence brings out the best in you. You have to be free from every kind of disturbances. Go for best essay writing service here. It is same in the case of reading. If you are reading from a clam place, it will go in to your heart rather than your mind. Writing needs more calm and peaceful place. Distracting background noise will make you feel uncomfortable. You will not be able to think properly if you are not completely in to it. Also multi-tasking is not going to work here. You are not supposed to do any other works while you are writing. But some exception cases are there. Some writers are there who can write comfortably if a mellow music is there at the background. But this is rare. Not common. If you are writing in a paper, go to peaceful place and start writing. Take enough pen and papers. Going again to bring those things can make you tired and feel odd. But if you are typing, then some other things have to be kept in your mind. Notifications in the computer should be turned off. Clear your desk so that the place is neat. This can make you feel better. Just put everything in the drawer. Keep it in place later when you are free. Also it is better to turn off your phone. This is the uttermost distraction that you may have to face these days. Close the door of your room. Be free from every problem. One more thing to keep in mind is placing a bottle of water. Do not get any snacks thinking that you can have while you are writing. It is a wrong decision, especially if you are a foodie. This will tempt you to focus on eating, not on writing.
