“Do what you love” disguises the fact that being able to choose a career primarily for personal reward is a privilege, a sign of socioeconomic class. Even if a self-employed graphic designer had parents who could pay for art school and co-sign a lease for a slick Brooklyn apartment, she can bestow DWYL as career advice upon those covetous of her success.

If we believe that working as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur or a museum publicist or a think-tank acolyte is essential to being true to ourselves, what do we believe about the inner lives and hopes of those who clean hotel rooms and stock shelves at big-box stores? The answer is: nothing.

Do what you love, love what you do: An omnipresent mantra that’s bad for work and workers. (via bakcwadrs)

a couple of other quotes from the article i really like:

According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation but is an act of love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, presumably it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace

and

Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life! Before succumbing to the intoxicating warmth of that promise, it’s critical to ask, “Who, exactly, benefits from making work feel like nonwork?” “Why should workers feel as if they aren’t working when they are?” In masking the very exploitative mechanisms of labor that it fuels, DWYL is, in fact, the most perfect ideological tool of capitalism. If we acknowledged all of our work as work, we could set appropriate limits for it, demanding fair compensation and humane schedules that allow for family and leisure time.

Arhitectural Hand Drawings by  Rafael Araujo

When it comes to architectural drawings, computer-aided design software is being used  and due to this, hand-drawn art seems to begin to lose.  The venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo show us that no matter how impressive the technology, nothing can match the expressiveness of hand-drawings.

His series of architectural style drawings entitled ‘Calculation’ are done with pencil and pen and seem to try to give an answer to the question “Is the Universe actually made of math?”. Araujo creates complex fields of three dimensional space where he renders the motion and mathematical brilliance of nature with a pencil, ruler and protractor. The trajectories of a butterfly fly or the logarithmic spirals of shells are beautifully illustrated by Araujo, who`s remarkable skills seem to resurrect the art of hand-drawing.

Araujo`s illustrations appear to be drawn from Da Vinci’s sketchbooks,  showing us that our reality isn`t just described by mathematics, it is mathematics.
