What does your desk say about you?

Desk – Music and Sound Design from Aaron Trinder Film:Motion:Music on Vimeo.

Are you nomadic, without need of a desk? Or do you like your desk to be cluttered with inspiration? Do you use piles of papers as walls of protection?

Why are you the way you are?

This lovely short film is a gentle glimpse into the fascinating psychology of the desk as used by humans.

[Much as I love paperweights – like those glass ones from the 1970’s – I’ve never had one. What’s the point of putting something on a pile of paper when you are not in a windy place? But ah, now I see in this little film it is for those of us who love little scraps of paper all willy-nilly everywhere. You will see a bird one in actual use – stopping delicate little newspaper cuttings from blowing about! And I suppose also pleasing the fancy of its owner.]

    I love this, the way people refer to their desk as their nest, their comfort zone, a place it’s all right to be alone.

    I think the physical desk could go away but people will always recreate a space of desk. People I see in the cafe with their laptops tend to sit at the same table every day–and on the same side of that table as well.

    My desk is a colorful disaster of papers, photos & sticky notes–and an old clock that ticks but doesn’t keep time. I wonder what this says about me.
