Day 7 or 8 of Covid for me. So thankful to be able to shelter at home and have someone look out for me, but living in one room has been really testing.

Heading into Brighton in a rare outing to see actual people, lured in by the tempting double bill of @paulrobertlloyd and @roobottom give design talks 🙌🔥

Lovely 4K renders of rivers - love the organic shapes. From the post: “An ongoing series of vibrant river and delta images from North America and other parts of the world. The images are constructed using high-resolution elevation data.
