Stand Up Paddling

BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
IN VARBERG

SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. (in Swedish)

Nostrum Collective

BY NOSTRUM COLLECTIVE
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Nostrum Collective is a photographic project to show the relationship between a group of friends formed on the sea for surfing and the Sea through our photo shoot. Every kind of relationship with the sea is accepted, whether it be surfing, swimming, fishing or diving- or simply looking into that magical blue water. Nostrum Collective would like to be a high quality photographic diary with a very deep Ligurian and Mediterranean identity to share with all people who love the sea and the many beautiful moments it gives to us.

La revolución del Garabato

BY BLANCA TULLEUDA
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 09, 2014

Blanca Tulleuda nos recuerda en su presentación que es necesario devolver el poder del garabato a las personas, para que éstas puedan seguir luchando por un mundo mejor. El 80% de nuestro sistema nervioso está dedicado a la vista, pero al mismo tiempo la sociedad no fomenta que dibujemos, dejamos de hacerlo a los 10 años. La revolución del garabato es la vuelta al dibujo para ser más creativos y productivos en lo profesional y en lo académico.

Tulleuda ha materializado esta revolución visual en el proyecto Dubu2pia
