Dreaming away to Berlin. (Photo by Sanna Trotsman from our trip with our classmates two years ago)
Turned out to be a slow week for me, as I didn't felt that well in the beginning of the week, and yesterday I ended up with a migraine. And today feeling totally groggy or as I'm having a bad hangover. Maybe a result of all stress I've been exposed to. Hopefully feeling better tomorrow, trying to find inspiration from nice technical drawings. Having Carlo Scarpa, Louis Khan, Lina Bo Bardi, Tadao Ando on my mind, if anyone knows where to look, let me know. Maybe a trip to the architecture and design museum would be good for me.
“Throughout the work of the groundbreaking designer Robert Stadler there is an underlying experimental vein. He questions the status of the object, its function and its presence. Through a subtle shift of the frame, he accentuates the perception of the profession.”
Also what my aim is in many ways when I think of objects and space in my own work. I like to think about obejcts/furniture more like sculptures. I like the idea of an object being something more, or being something you actually can't tell what it is for. I like to think the same about spaces, to question what it is, and what it could be. If art can be some kind of space, in my meaning it absolutely can. Why do we have to put lables on everything? I would like to make people aware of the space, and their own bodies. Create a room you just don't pass by, or ignore, or doesn't remember. That is my true vision, hopefully I can stay with those thoughts in the future. That's why the relation between space, body and object is so important and interesting.
Been exhited for a while over that my favorite fashion designers are back, Astrid Olsson & Lee Cotter with their new brand BY THE NO. Here's some sneakpeak pictures that I found on their facebook page, also the news about Jesper Waldersten being their guest creator, making prints of his beautful art and illustrations. I'm so exhited about that too.
Yesterday we got a nice visit at Konstfack by stylist Tina Hellberg and photographer Idha Lindhag for our space/object project to be part of Elle Decoration for an upcoming issue. It turned out very nice, they are so talanted and it was very fun to be part of that yesterday together with other products. Thank you! Now, continue with my spatial project and for the others to continue with their project at the furniture fair.
This weekend we had to rebuild this triangles that we made before as we didn't have anything left as we destroyed it to try another version. This time we improvised a new shape, and this is how it turned out. Hopefully the shape will be used for something, we'll see. At the moment I'm so tired having a hell of a week with deadlines almost everyday. So, now I need to rest so I have energy for this upcoming week and project. All I really want is to sleep for a whole week or go for a vacation.
This is previous work that I made, and a portfolio for our project made in the furniture course.
With no time at all for change, it's everything I wish for now. Especially in my own home. As I live in a quite small apartment, it's important in my opinion to have a sort of structure, as it gets pretty messy from time to time. All I want to do is to to paint all walls and change the way it is. But, no time, and no interest of bringing or buying more stuff. I just want to make it work, as it is and with small changes it might. I'm so tired of all white that I see (I know I will regret that thought soon) Well, as I said, no time at all. Eventually I will have time to solve the storage problems and other stuff, maybe in the end of spring.
Now, time to finish the writing for my application for the spatial design master studies, and the essay, and the portfolio, and start my new project based on the essay, and then start with the thesis work. It's gonna be really fun, but very, very much work to do. SEE YOU!
Some images from my trip to the exhibition Mark the Line at Göteborgs konsthall this saturday.
On way to Gothenburg as I yesterday realized that an exhibition that I want to see ends this weekend. In my essay and for the upcoming project in spatial design, and probably in my thesis work for my last term in this bachelor interior Archiecture & furniture design I am investigating lines and rooms. In the exhibition Mark the Line at Göteborgs Konsthall some artists that I write about exhibit their artwork in the relations between line and space. In relation to plain art, in relation to all lines that are drawn in this world regarding boundaries, in politic and social terms. It is going to be interesting to get access to some artists ideas and their work. I'm looking forward to take part of Mona Hatoum's work, and also Fred Sandback's clean lines in space, two artists that work and worked in two different ways. Hopefully I can study how I in relation to their work move, react and think. How I interact with their sculptures, the lines that they are drawing in space. If the lines of Fred Sandback's work actually is what I think they are, and how they are going to affect my and others movement in space. We will see how that ends maybe. Have a nice weekend!
Have been dreaming of this lamp for a while (years) and I'm very lucky to have a crazy boyfriend that bought it for me this christmas. Not something that I would wish for as it isn't in my price range exacltly. But, thank you J, you are crazy!
I love the simplicity and the shape, it will hopefully fit right in to our home.
Free shipping in my shop for all orders within Sweden during December!
Together with two exchange students from London (Georgina & Jamie) we have been exploring shapes in our furniture course with the theme Display. This is one part and test version of how it could look like, and also be able to change scale of course. Yesterday we took everything apart and next step will be to assamble it in another way. How that turns out, we'll see!
