the love of it philosophy

the love of it philosophy

the love of it started, as all good ideas do, with a list. I was visiting my brother in Japan this September and as you do when you’re far from home, pondering on what you should do with yourself when you get home and spending a lot of time on trains, I wrote down a list of everything I loved doing: road trips, wild swimming, picnics, telling stories, playing Scrabble, nightwalking and star gazing, climbing hills and camping, spending time with friends. It dawned on me that there wasn’t one single place that brought all these things together – so I decided to make one! Since then things have kind of snowballed. Read More »

Draw a blind self portrait

To celebrate the launch of Light Box’s Happiness Project, we’d like to challenge you all to draw a blind self-portrait. Look in a mirror or sit opposite a friend and just start sketching. Use pen or crayons, glue and glitter, finger paint, make a collage, make a mess. There are no rules. No, wait, there is one rule – don’t, whatever you do, look at your paper! Read More »

Have a monster swap

Making a monster is child’s play. Follow our guide to making cuddly creatures out of fabric scraps or an old scarf, turn a teddy bear inside out then sew him back up again, or get splicing and sew the head and neck of a beanie giraffe onto a penguin’s body. Swap your monster with a friend and send us a photo of the little critter in his/her new home.

Paint with light
13th March 10

Paint with light

Painting with light is a really fun photography technique that gives great results but is so easy to try. Pop your camera on a tripod (or rest it on a wall), set it to a slow shutter speed and start experimenting. Scribble eco-friendly graffiti on buildings with a torch, make patterns with glow in the dark hula hoops or poi, or animate your own story in light. Use your imagination, set off into the city and play. Read More »
