As we count the final hours of 2013, there is nothing more fitting than taking a final glance back at what has happened in the past year and recall the events, people and projects that were the most memorable and inspiring. It is for that reason that every year at this time we like to bring together the most popular stories from our website into one spectacular post – like a fitting farewell to the year that we are leaving behind and a great way welcome the new one just around the corner.

Throughout 2013 we followed people who decided to chase their dreams no matter what, as in for example the almost legendary tale of Constantin Brancusi’s controversial New York debut a hundred years ago, or the heart-warming story of photographer Theron Humphrey and his amazing canine partner Maddie. We also discovered others who decided to make the impossible possible no matter what: visual artist Berndnaut Smilde creates real clouds indoors and takes surreal pictures of them, while sculptor Phillip K. Smith III transformed an abandoned shack in the middle of the Californian desert into a poetic light installation. Tales of commitment and passion also found their way into our pages, like that of coffee company TRUTH, whose flagship café in Cape Town, South Africa is full of character and complexity – a fitting tribute to great coffee-making. Meanwhile, in Paris, France, illustrator Jonathan Bréchignac painstakingly draws elaborate carpet designs on paper using just ballpoint pens, a long process which is almost meditative in nature.
