Chromaesthesia, an all-pink apartment, writing advice from Mary Karr, and more in this installment of The Zone.


  • Israeli artist Michal Levy has a condition called chromaesthesia, a form of synesthesia, in which sounds and music provoke visuals. She turned John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” & Bach’s “Prelude in C Major” into musical animations, and the results are amazing.
  • An all-pink apartment! What a perfect spot for a vacation. Huge Instagram potential for those interested.
  • See how Charles Bridge in Prague was built in the 14th century in a short animation here. Amazing.
  • How different classical cameras click sounds. This made me think about my dad’s old Russian Zenit; a madeleine cake of sound.
  • Cartographer Sean Convey transforms vintage maps into prints that look like 3D relief maps. I’m seriously thinking about ordering this Australia map.
  • A song I’m listening to: Jai-Jagdeesh In Dreams from the album Of Heaven & Earth (2013),

Quote I’m Pondering

After a lifetime of hounding authors for advice, I’ve heard three truths from every mouth: (1) Writing is painful—it’s “fun” only for novices, the very young, and hacks; (2) other than a few instances of luck, good work only comes through revision; (3) the best revisers often have reading habits that stretch back before the current age, which lends them a sense of history and raises their standards for quality.
