You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

Bringing Stringed Instruments to Life with @jacobvdlippe

For more moments from Jacob’s workshop, follow @jacobvdlippe on Instagram.

“With a new instrument, the musician can actually shape the sound in the first years, making it an integral part in their way of communicating music,” explains Norwegian violin and cello maker Jacob von der Lippe (@jacobvdlippe). “Instead of doing repairs, I focused on making new right from the start.”

For Jacob, who took up cello at age eight, music has been a lifelong pursuit. “My parents were passionate about music, and encouraged my playing,” he says. At 17, he built his first cello as a school project. “From then on, I was hooked.”

“Being able to work with a craft merged with music was something that really appealed to me,” explains Jacob, who spent five years in Cremona, Italy—the violin’s birthplace—studying the trade. Fourteen years and nearly sixty violins later, Jacob’s creations have found their way into the hands of musicians around the globe.

Irregular And Apparently Functional | Ben Sweeting | The Draftery

"In these drawings I have explored ways in which the contingencies of designing might be made manifest in the things that we design. It is not that that I have tried to design objects that “are” contingent—everything we design could equally have been otherwise. Rather, I have tried to make the contingencies of designing experienceable, in contrast to the way that they are often tidied away.

The drawings begin from a consideration of apparently functional everyday objects. Though these have clear requirements following from their purpose, they are under-constrained and leave enormous room for variation. Using an elaborate process of drawing, I have amalgamated several possibilities together to create irregular compositions without any one dominant ordering principle (even that of orderlessness). This formal strategy is complemented by the inclusion of mechanical components, animating the objects so that they slowly cycle through alternative configurations while being used.”
