Welcome back to the Isolation Diaries, our weekly round-up of the things that bring us joy, keep us creatively motivated and help us unwind. What have you been up to?

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume22 Reading

We’re living through the lens of Childish Gambino, reading more about the amazing energy of his live shows… Because we can’t go to any right now. There’s a real art to delicious, simple, family food, but Julia Busuttil Nishimura tells us that the secret ingredient is almost always love, sharing, or seasonal ingredients. Or all three. Remember travelling? We’re reminiscing with the Lonely Planet’s Best of Italy: A guide to the top sights, experiences and food.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume22 Watching

Exciting news… The Tour De France has begun! Here’s how to watch. We’re clearly missing the opportunity to explore, so we’re taking in the beauty of the great outdoors through a screen, roaming Our Planet with David Attenborough. A game-changer for Marvel, and a defining moment in cinema for many reasons, we’re watching and rewatching Black Panther. The great Chadwick Boseman will be missed by all—Wakanda Forever.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume22 Making

You love your dog? Of course you do! And we say, why not treat all the good bois out there with these pup-friendly snackables. For ourselves, we’re pickling jalapeños this week with the wonderful Sophia Roe, NYC chef and all-round good human. The NGV has been offering online courses, tours and workshops to keep the masses entertained while the gallery is closed. We’re learning all about Surrealism this month, a course that explores the birth of a movement to now.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume22 Listening

The Bananas podcast is an exploration of the strange, fascinating or ‘plain bananas’ news from around the world, with special guests. We’re trawling the events on LiveNation. A one-stop-shop, it’s an online portal for streaming all the music, comedy shows and interviews you could imagine—from your favourite artists, to you at home. And we’re making sure we keep our masks on and our spirits high with Daft Punk’s Alive 2007.
