How do you take a walk with someone on the internet?

"In May and June 2021, artist g chiarion exchanged online walks through different countries; her guides were individuals forced from those countries by conflict. Born out of the COVID pandemic, and our collective isolation, these sessions were themselves conducted remotely. Despite this double distance, or perhaps because of it, the walks are intimate portraits of the places we call home. The resulting work has been captured as four folder poems, or verbal maps."

Designing Beautiful Shadows in CSS

"In my humble opinion, the best websites and web applications have a tangible “real” quality to them. There are lots of factors involved to achieve this quality, but shadows are a critical ingredient. When I look around the web, though, it's clear that most shadows aren't as rich as they could be. The web is covered in fuzzy grey boxes that don't really look much like shadows. In this tutorial, we'll learn how to transform typical box-shadows into beautiful, life-like ones."
