Home Decor by Joen

A very long time ago, prior to us both working at Automattic, Joen Asmussen sent me a gorgeous print of one of his works as a “thank you” for help on an amazing project which unfortunately never saw public release. A few years later, he graciously requested to I add a nostalgic touch to my office with a second. Both sadly sat in tubes for an unjustified amount of time, but the wait is over! Now that we have completed our move, these pieces from Joen were the first to be hung.

Finale #1 is (for lack of a better word) part of an interactive art project that Joen did in May of 2007.

I Want to Believe is, of course, a recreation of the iconic X-Files poster. Just as it once graced the wall of Fox Mulder’s office, it is now the centerpiece of my office.

Folks who cannot figure out the nostalgic reference on sight need not remain in my office.
