Jobs for which I have been paid at least $1 in my life:
Minding the Minimal with @patriromero

"I’ve been a perfectionist for as long as I can remember," says Venezuela Instagrammer Patricia Romero (@patriromero). “When I was a little kid, I used to get angry when my two ponytails weren’t perfectly aligned, so wearing my hair down was always better.”
Today, Patricia’s obsession with details comes to life in her photos. “There are a lot of beautiful objects and moments in our ordinary life that deserve a bit of attention from us, and we overlook them,” she explains. “That is what I try to show in my pictures: that magic moment full of simplicity.”
An art director who also takes on various design projects with friends, Patricia has been living in Madrid for five years and finds that most of her shots are captured on her everyday commute. “My house is far away from everything, so I spend a lot of time in transit. I keep my eyes wide open all the time, trying to see simple things as if I had not seen them before. That way, I can find beauty in everything, every moment.”
Playing with Masks with @artedemirar

These are just a few of the characters Sandra Suárez (@artedemirar) brings to life through the masks she makes, then wears, on Instagram. “It’s for fun,” Sandra says. “Sometimes we forget to do the things that amuse us. Leave out the obligations and worries and just play.”
Sandra, who is an artist and began painting and experimenting with different materials as a child, has built an international community on Instagram that inspires her and informs her work. “This week, a girl from Indonesia wrote me, saying that I had inspired a recycling project she was doing in school,” she says. “How is that possible? From Spain I managed to reach a person who was thousands of miles away.”

Ben and I joined the Ghostly label/family the same year (2008). We started to talk online soon after his School of Seven Bells album release. I always looked up to him, even though he was a year younger than me, he had such an amazing body of work behind him…

"They are split by electronics and such insane vocal harmonies. I’m telling you man, they are really amazing - even better live(!) and you can peep a few joints on their myspace."
