#MOGICOFFEE loves bue

Is it possible to get lost in a seascape, staying in the heart of Morocco? If by sea we mean a poetic amalgam of infinite shades of blue, the answer is absolutely yes and there is also the perfect place to do it: the city of Chefchaouen, the “blue pearl” of the Rif.

Between the narrow streets of this inhabited center founded in 1400 by Andalusian exiles, Muslims and Jews, in fact, everything is blue, from the walls to the shop signs, from the doors to the steps of the streets, from the sky to the taxi cabs. It is not known whether this is due to ancient Jewish traditions, a lively expedient to remove insects, a colorful trick to keep the rooms cool and calm the mind or a tribute to the importance of water, but it does not matter because the result it is a suggestive city-painting unique in the world.

When water springs*

We like to share with you our new discovery and this time we are so pleased to introduce you the work of Anne Ten Donkelaar, a Dutch artist that has worked with cut-out flower arrangements and that is now taking further her research.

Her latest work “underwater ballet” she sinks simple and yet profound bouquet of flower anchoring each one of them to a metal trinket, the result is a choreography of a dance, taken in a single shoot: poetically light and delicate.

August Blues*

It has officially been proven now that August-existentialist anxiety and depression are a real thing–as the New York magazine reported— but we prefer to think about how many names and shades the color blue has, it cheers us up! Try it!
