Lunarr's Inspirational Elements

Lunarr, in Portland, Oregon has launched an interesting site called Lunarr elements. It is based on the Japanese concept of 一期一会 “ichi-go ichi-e” or "one chance, one meeting." It is the central concept on which the Japanese tea ceremony is based, the idea that you interact with others as if it is the last time you will see them.

Lunarr elements displays inspirational images or quotes. The viewer is asked to quickly vote if they like it, or to "cast" it to others, or simply continue exploring the database of elements. The goal is not to think about it too much, to decide in a split second.

Users can upload their own images and quotes, and also follow other users. I recommend you try it, it's a great way to spend a few minutes and take a refreshing break from your daily tasks. And it might help provide a creative spark for whatever project you are working on.

Here is an example of an element.
