Since 2004 the Dutch artist Rob Sweere has been inviting people worldwide to take part in an unconventional experience: to contemplate the sky for 30 minutes in complete silence. It’s the Silent Sky Project#.

“I learned not only how to read from comic books, but also how to see. I learned about line, shape, color, value, space, texture, color, balance, harmony, unity, contrast, variety, rhythm, repetition, emphasis, continuity, spatial systems, structures and grids, proportion and scale, and composition by studying and copying the drawings from the comic books of my Italian childhood. The word disegno literally meant drawing, but also design. Thus, the two were forever fused in my mind, each inseparable from the other: drawing is design, and design is, essentially, drawing.”
