 The beauty of empty space

The beauty of empty space

Japanese art and design, the term yohaku no bi (余白の美 ) expresses the beauty of empty space. It’s employed across the arts from architecture, gardening, and the culinary arts to painting, literature, and cinema. 

It is powerful for many reasons: it gives form to the solid through a void; it can be used to direct the eye and offers the eye a place to rest; it holds infinite possibility; and allows space for the viewer to interact and engage with the piece, to write themselves into the artwork, making it their own.

Boredom is an in-between state

Productivity says move, move, move. Boredom comes after “I’m not engaged” but before you’ve decided what might be more engaging. It’s uncomfortable because it’s uncertain. It’s unclear. But it’s also an opportunity to recalibrate life toward your values, or simply to rest and restore. 

Boredom is the pause in between breaths. It is not the exhale of production. It is not the inhale of inspiration. It is the space between.

The right to be bored

The right to be bored is:

  • The right to not be productive. 
  • The right to your own thoughts.
  • The right to change your mind. 
  • The right to care less about optics and more about how your body feels.
  • The right to play. The right to have fun. 
  • The right to rest.
  • The right to daydream. 
  • The right to be still. The right to quiet.
  • The right to not know. To not have all the answers. The right to explore. 
  • The right to imagine a more ideal world without lapsing into an escape, fantasy, or When / Then Thinking.
  • The right to no plans.
  • The right to no pics and it did happen.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
