The Nonsensical is back with tasty brain food for you this Friday. Sit back and relax as we show the world through the eyes of a alternate reality developer, ponder the challenges of co-living and make Theresa May dodge Jeremy Corbyn through a field of wheat.
Yes. You heard us…
Nonsensical [non-sen-si-kuh l]
A weekly summation of all the cool stuff we see on the internet (and real-life)… ready and waiting for your procrastination pleasure on a Friday afternoon…
Bringing The ‘Co’ into Co-Living…
“The idea of ‘collective’, ‘co-living’, ‘common’. These words have real meaning. They imply ownership, responsibility, cooperation, freedom. They come weighed down with historical connotations — from forced land enclosures to the counterculture movement.”
Ownership, responsibility, cooperation, freedom… something that resonated hugely with the team here at Sense Worldwide HQ. We constantly push ourselves and our Network to own, be accountable for, cooperate and have their own creative license across all our projects and client briefs. Perhaps the co-living challenge is our next one?
The Matrix Is Closer Than You Think…
Move over AI and VR… Alternate Realities is a billion dollar business (and it’s terrifying).
Colour Blends – Enough To Give You A Colourgasm
Because Toucan play at that game…
Geek Out On New Planets
Because this planet is bumming us out at the moment and the new ones found by the Kepler mission sound AWESOME.
Come Wheat May
It’s the computer game you never knew you needed… until now.
We spend time with a lot of people in the Sense Network from cities all around the world. We hear things, we see things, we share things.
What’s been most noticeable is the interest and intrigue in how ideas are formed, interpreted and reshaped as they travel around the world. From Gangnam Style to White Dress vs Blue Dress we are fascinated about how these simple ideas permeate and are reimagined across cultures.
The Nonsensical will be our nod to this. A weekly summation of all the cool stuff we see on the internet (and real-life)… ready and waiting for your procrastination pleasure on a Friday afternoon…

The museum of failure in Stockholm:
It’s basically a building full of Google Glass and we’re not going to lie, we want to go.
Books on the future of design for the win. An amazing write up… just watch the spines don’t melt on the beach.
Japan take the battle of the memes to another level. If you catch our drift…
Sound waves that can levitate objects:
A potential breakthrough in medicine for improving the purity and potency of drugs delivered to the body – this is MENTAL.
Ikea Ads hit the spot:
As grocery retailers struggle to sort their figures out (check out this report from McKinsey for more information about this) these are some of the best food ads we’ve seen for AGES. Simple, easy on the eye and most importantly. Actionable.
Radiohead’s artist nails it in Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht:
And it’s even got a Thom Yorke soundtrack…
