Common Things Uncommon Beauty

web design, development

Common Things Uncommon Beauty is a project started in 2016 by artist, photographer, and poet, Arthur Gibson, that acts as an artistic outlet for documenting everyday beauty. The site archives the hundreds of photo / haiku pairings posted daily to Instagram with filters that organize the content by nature, things, and people. Centered, circular buttons trigger the navigation to focus the layout on the catalogue of images. A large, bold title borders the screen acting as both a frame and home button. 'The haiku speak of love, connection and the beauty of the human condition. Together the photograph and haiku present something to be considered, and the hope that we will realize that we have much more in common with each other than not, and have the opportunity to create uncommon beauty working with each other.'
