"I’m considered many things but first and foremost I am a globetrotter. Once a year (ideally) I try to go to a place I haven’t been to before. Last year that place was Frankfurt, Germany. One of my dearest friends, Sara, was kind enough to let me stay with her. I took this photograph inside one of the churches somewhere downtown Frankfurt. As you can tell I am not a photographer but document all the traveling I love like this picture. I am not religious but this church was hauntingly beautiful.
I wish my apartment was as organized as my desktop. Damn it.”

"My desktop changes a few times a month; right now this lemon is to remind me both to think more Big Picture and to just make.”

"This is the cleanest my desktop has been in the last six months. Preparing a show is stressful. These two images are from a body called Disturbances, by Irish photographer Willie Doherty."

“On top of digital images and video, I also shoot on damaged and/or redscale film, so I usually use one of those pics as my wallpaper, which I then impose boxes for keeping current projects separated from misc. clutter on my desktop.”

"Yea I found this in a search for a new desktop, That someone else made, and though I would submit the one I was using now.
I am 60, a pro Photographer (off and on), Digital Art and Photography, Lafayette Indiana (Purdue), and my site is currently down. This is a heavily modified dragonfly image converted into a Wallpaper border that I am currently trying to sell.”

"I am really scatterbrained and always have too many projects running at the same time. It’s constantly a battle for me to keep this desktop clean. The "Josh Bell is Awesome" folder is actually in even more disarray as it consists mainly of files from desktop cleanups. Someone help me x.x"

"I have maybe too many interests and I always feel as though I don’t have (or make) enough time to really get way into them like I’d prefer.
The greenery picture was actually my desktop when I downloaded Steam in order to play this game with a sweet soundtrack, Hotline Miami. Upon opening the game, the title appeared on my screen like this and I thought it was absolutely perfect. Ironically, it’s been a few weeks and I have yet to play this game…”

"I’m a fine artist working predominantly in glitch, gif, and pixel art, I also make noise music, I tend to have a weekly clean up of my desktop and this is about two days worth of practice images saved, a handful of which actually go out into a public forum. The image is a teletext version of the Jaws movie poster I made, but due to my lack of copyright knowledge I’m not really able to upload most of the posters I’ve re-made through fear of being sued."

"My desktop is generally somewhat messy since I am in grad school and am always working on various projects or assignments at once. Either way, my organization when it comes to my laptop is minimal. I like to say I can find things in my mess, or I enjoy discovering old work and inspiration through searches.
My current background is a photo of my mother circa 1995, when my family and I immigrated from Cuba to the United States, making Memphis, Tennessee our home. She’s sitting by the Mississippi, which is directly in front of her. My father snapped the photo.
I have used family photographs in my past work and am always intrigued by the family album. I believe they are our first introduction to fine art photography. I think they are worth more than gold.”

"I try and keep the desktop image simple, beautiful and relaxing. There’s enough going on already. I keep the inspiring images on tumblr, in their own space. I don’t wanna drown in other people’s images all day."

"This is a prime example of how I keep my desktop in the midst of finals. I am a graduate student currently, and although I maintain a slight amount of organization, I cannot help but constantly snag inspiration and throw it on my desktop. 
I always use other artists’ images as my desktop background too. I hate exposing myself to my own work an unnecessary amount, so I like to look at someone else’s when I’m not working on mine.
Here’s a link to that image, so you guys can go look at the artist’s other work.”
