[amor fati ☕️] vol.6 conversation nooks

homeless living rooms, art that flows, house of mirrors, fav airbnbs, conversation pits, and reading nooks.

AmorFati is a mood board of art, poetry, architecture, photography, and design that has personally inspired me.

Happy Sunday,

Today’s Amor Fati: homeless living rooms, art that flows, house of mirrors, fav airbnbs, conversation pits, and reading nooks.

Last week in Tulum. Some of my favorite feelings that I want future me to remember:

  • waking up to fumes of black coffee. Meditating in bed with hot ceramic between my palms.

  • the jungle zen of Habitas and late night work flow states at La Zebra.

  • 10pm conversations under dark red lights on a spanish beach terrace. And the best fuchsia shrimp tacos i’ve ever had.

  • car windows down, volume up, hair whipping my face, and inhaling the salty night air.

  • breaking of the 4th wall as we silently watched the Social Dilemma.

  • the creativity channeled into FlowBox, MindStreaks, and SubtleAsianFood.

  • realizing that at the end of the day, being drunk with purpose wins over sobriety in paradise.

Enjoy ☕️

Spanish artist Àngela Maria Sierra explores the human psyche through subtly layered foliage. “I always imagine that they are someone’s soul, what we don’t see, our nature,” Sierra says of the delicate botanical assemblages that she overlays onto her subjects’ faces and torsos.

In her series titled Living Rooms, which culminated in a book published by Kerber Verlag, the artist situates the shelters of those experiencing houselessness within the dwellings of affluent folks in San Francisco.
