last weekend i went to another midnight bazar here in munich, it was a lot of fun as usual, some of my friends from uni joined me and we had quite a nice evening, eating in a noodle bar before and then searching for some treasures. the sweater on the left isn't from the flea market though, i ordered it at TO BE CLOTHING since it was on sale, make sure to check them out, they're selling pretty nice stuff! - i also ordered the black beanie, but it wasn't in the package.. well, the other stuff is from the flea market, a grey kind of eqyptian pattern sweater for 2€, gold necklace and bracelet for 5€ together and that cute little tokidoki plastic toy for 1€ - don't wonder, i collect plastic toys and phone charms. well.. now i finally have my holidays until april and i hope i'll get to do some more DIYs, i've got a long long list, i'm sure you can imagine.. so stay tuned!
it feels like ages since i developed the last lomography film, this time it's diana again! i let them cross process it, and surprisingly there were a lot of good photos, i guess the diana is a little bit better than the holga, it's always more sharp and less blurry on the edges.. anyway, i have to take a lot more analogue photos, i really have to remind myself to take one of my cameras with me everywhere i go!
i guess i'm a little bit crazy about every kind of geometric things, shapes, patterns, polyhedra.. so i did different kinds of geometric art i guess, one of my favourites is modular origami at the moment, it's crazy just check out my playlist on youtube, there are so many things to fold, i just do it while watching tv or while waiting for something.. practically everywhere.. well and the other things are just ramdom, some thread art on some of my black and white lomo phoos and something i had to do for uni, a completely white artwork.. i really had fun doing that, i folded those triangles and then spilled 6 small candles over it and sprayed it white - although i nearly burned my apartement..
i nearly made it through the first semester at university, it's just two weeks to go, maybe the most horrible two weeks ever, lots of projects, some test and not enough time at all.. so anyway i wanted to show you some of the more interesting stuff i did this year.. beginning with the first of my three 5-week-main-projects: landscape architecture (not the best translation, but that's kinda it..)
among other things we had to build to cardboard models of a certain building in munich, every team of two students got one.. the first model is a negative model, we kinda built the air around the building, the building itself are the holes in it.. looks pretty interesting i think.. the second one is a classic 1:100 model, but we also used it for our study of the movement around the building, each colour represents a certain group of people moving around the buildings..
the next project was interior design and our task was to design and build a 1:20 model of the same box with specified measurements three times, everytime a little different and each within one or for the second one two weeks. the first task was to design our own dream apartement for one or two persons - lowest box - second task was to design a home for a family with one child - middle one - and the last was to combine work and live within one box designing a system that can be changed and rearranged to separate or connect single rooms of the house. at the end we placed all of our boxes next to each other, it looked really cool, like a really big scyscraper in shanghai or something!
last project had been product or furniture design and the most awesome day was our 8-hour-chair-day.. as the name already tells, we had to design and build a chair in only 8 hours, teams of two students and only laths and nails were allowed.. well i think our chair went out pretty good, it's just tipping over very easily - doesn't matter :D
last two pictureas are both renderings i did with photoshop, completely built out of concrete and other textures and background pictures.. it's fun but it really takes time.. the last one took me about 8h or something.. O:
well, after all i really loved this semester, i had so many different things to do, my university is just awesome, not theoretical, but all practical.. it is exhausting sometimes but i think i've learned a lot and i'm pretty excited about what's to come.. if you have questions, just feel free to ask!
