Accessories Assemble!

Appearance translates to Performance. A phrase not just applicable to our own image, but also our workplace. There are certainly many ways to enhance an office space, and accessories are a good starting point, whether you are completely refurbishing your space or looking to brighten up your existing office, organising and de cluttering accessories certainly go a long way. With endless options; desk power, cable management, Laptop stands and monitor arms to improve ergonomics there is no excuse not to energise your office.

Given that we spend more time at work than we do at home, the office should have character and to some extent embody elements of domesticity. At home an empty wall would be a sad sight. Yet it seems that work place Art is under provided, and when it can represent your company’s values it seems a travesty to leave the walls under nourished.

Employee engagement is a key topic for companies, and ensuring that employees feel better about their environment means higher levels of productivity. We all must seek to create a space made up of light, air, ergonomics, and visual stimulants, and with this in mind, Art needs to become a necessity over a nicety. Energizing and personalising a workspace gives each employee a clearer sense of the company’s identity. Indeed with companies spending hundreds of thousands on fitting out their office to the highest specification, and investing in quality furniture, they have forgotten the purest form of design; painting, drawing and photography, Fine Art. Even for the smallest companies in their first office space, a desk is often just a desk that merges into the landscape, but artwork can jump, and present cues to the company’s ethos and vision.

Another element within the workplace to seriously consider is poor lighting, which can affect motivation and efficiency, with eyestrain and headaches amongst many other things. By using the correct lighting, errors can be decreased by up to 60%. A huge percentage of people spending their days staring at a computer screen, and with artificial light sources causing glare and flickering, absenteeism is undoubtedly set to rise. A factor costing Business’s millions per annum.

Installing a new lighting system can be costly, and not always a viable option. However investing in LED lamps could be the perfect solution to these lighting woes. Creating ambience and atmosphere goes a long way, especially for those who aren’t blessed with natural lighting.

A husky tune on a broken record, and a tale always told, but Plants are another key piece not to be missed in your workplace. The benefits of plants in the workplace are endless providing all the buzzwords of reducing stress, increasing productivity and reducing absence. But it goes without saying that if these potted wonders clean the air we breath, why isn’t It a worthy investment.

It is clear what must be done, and criminal to leave your office an empty void of cables, bare walls, computer screens and Stationary, so accessorize up, and nurture your workplace. The Return of Investment is unquestionable, don’t be the fool in the wake of the rat race.

Modern Museum of Curiosities

In an age where there has never been so many photographs being taken, totalling 1.1 trillion worldwide in 2016, with every man and his dog carrying a mobile phone with a built in camera, one might argue that this advancement of technology is destroying the art of photography. Is it a result of a narcissistic generation enslaved by the need to place a lens between them and their day to day activities, or is it a revolution, democratising this technology, opening up the art form to whoever will take the challenge?

Instagram is a key part in this shift in behaviour; A free mobile app that has over 500 million users a month opens up a global marketplace of imagery, allowing the individual or company to enhance images and interpret situations however they please, adding a filter to reality. Instagram has certainly become a modern museum of curiosities, with the individual as the curator and exhibitor. Yet in a world of continual advancement, we must progress positively and whilst the traditional art of photography, with lengthy process’s developing and printing may well be dwindling, one might argue that photography has never been more alive.

Accessible photography was born long before the phenomenon of camera phones. In the 1920s Kodak released its small, affordable shutter camera, giving everyone access on the go. Yet, the real development has been the narrative of the image that has been perpetuated by social media such as Instagram. With such readiness and accessibility, it drives competition, raising standards and in turn pushes the art form in many unpredictable directions.

A point that can be cherished, is that whilst pixels are king, and smart phones are continually developing you will never capture a lion hunting their prey 40 metres away in clear definition without an HD camera. Nor will the shutter speed of an iphone capture the water splashing as a bird dives for their supper with such clarity.

The true art of photography will always live on, but its purpose has shifted. It has certainly been diluted, yet we must remember that Instagram filters are a nostalgic reaction to over exposed polaroid photos, and in this world, escapism through the medium of photography can be a welcome refuge. It is important to remember and distinguish the layman with a camera phone, and the photographer composing images from perspectives we could never have fathomed. As an art form, photography will never perish, it is our perception that will continually need adjusting, in order to appreciate its true value in a saturated world.
