Link List #34
Creatives who are continually reinventing, bulletins from the worlds of Apple and Snapchat and the question of how our hunches let us down.
Journal > Link List #34

At Huoliquankai, we’re always connected. With our Link List, we wade into the frontlines of the digital zeitgeist to find the best articles and links and then collect them here for you to enjoy and share.

We don’t plan our link list around a thesis or theme, but this edition dwells on the cultural boundaries, visiting artists and designers who seemingly can’t stop innovating. This time around, we’re sharing bulletins from the worlds of Apple and Snapchat alongside stories of several creatives who are continually reinventing themselves, their work and their relationship to the world around them.
