Write&erase robot Scribit and artist Worry Lines present a series of illustrations to decorate your wall with positive and uplifting messages in the year of COVID-19.
Write&erase robot Scribit and artist-illustrator Worry Lines present “Odd Rituals at Work”, a lighthearted illustrated guide to reimagine working life in the highly stressful year of 2020. The guide features a set of drawings, done in Worry Lines' typical "oddly comforting" style, which can be reproduced by Scribit on the wall or window of any workspace, with the objective to diffuse work-related stress or share simple messages of mindfulness. The content was developed in collaboration with the European coworking network Talent Garden and is available worldwide as part of Scribit's art streaming platform that is sometimes referred to as the "Spotify-for-Art".
Scribit is the world's first write&erase robot that can turn any vertical surface into a low-refresh screen. Functioning as a "printer for walls", it ushers in a new way of presenting digital content and allows users to instantly personalize a vertical plane. Launched with one of the top crowdfunding campaigns ever, it was named one of the Best Inventions of the Year by TIME magazine in 2019.
Imagining the new working life in a humorous way, Scribit joins forces with the popular Instagram illustrator Worry Lines, whose drawings feature topics like mental health, the climate crisis, relationships, self-care, and body neutrality. This linear artistic style matches Scribit’s markers to promote creativity and improve the mood at work at a difficult time.
The “Odd Rituals at Work” collection includes four drawings, inspired by daily habits and moments related to the life in the workplace: from one’s hidden emotions behind polite and formal emails to the various postures in front of the desk; from a set of rules given by mythological figures to find your mental balance, to a wise turtle that reminds us the beauty of slowness as narrated by Aesop.
The Scribit Original by Worry Lines continues a series of collaborations with artists, public intellectuals, scientists, designers, foundations, and cultural institutions to promote universal messages and uplifting content to Scribit users worldwide. The collaboration was made possible thanks to Talent Garden in Turin, a branch of the largest European community of digital innovators within the coworking campus network.
Scribit Originals #13 was made available by Worry Lines
