Try A Zen Moment of Creativity with Elements by Lunarr

9 Feb

I just signed up for elements, a new visual Twitter like service by Lunarr. Simply beautiful. Take a minute to explore the incredibly striking images and get zeninspired. Hideshi Hamaguchi is co-founder and is an expert in strategy and design, two of my favorite subjects. Here’s what founders say about the new service:

一期一会 We’ve brought the cultural concept of “ichi-go ichi-e” into LUNARR elements. It means “one chance, one meeting,” and is traditionally at the center of a Japanese tea ceremony. It’s the idea that you must treat your interaction with others as if it is the last time you will see them.

With elements, we invite you to come take part in “ichi-go ichi-e.” You will view inspirational images and quotes (elements) one at a time with the option of casting the image to your friends, which will increase the possibility that they will see the same element; or keeping it yourself if you like it.

The elements will gradually become customized for what you might find inspirational based on your actions, those you follow or those who follow you, the elements others cast in your direction and more. We also welcome you to become a catalyst of inspiration by uploading your own elements or clipping them from the web.

You can check out a few of my own photos here. When you join, you have the option of finding or inviting friends to follow, similar to the Twitter model.
