Lower East

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and exhibitions, events, dinners and a lot more.

“Magical Realism is the name
Latin American literature got.
It’s about to make no sense,
to mix whatever and give it sense.

Latin America is about mixing,
about forgetting the roots
and making something out of it.

It’s about keeping your roots,
while you preach someone else’s god.
You may want to let the hare fight
otherwise the birds are gonna fly away anyway
and if they do,
you won’t be able to set the fight.

It’s about speaking indirectly
this isn’t your language anyway,
you may want to sing,
it will make no sense anyway,
so keep your shoes tight
you may need to run.
don’t forget the ornaments,
they may keep you safe
from human eyes.”
