I tried out working as a figurant, it was a scene in the movie The song of names, the scene took place in the 50s, so we got makeovers and costumes, which was so fun. I love movies so much and being part of creating one was really exciting.
There are two topics I was thinking about that are close to me. One is beauty, as always 😀 I think it is so easy to fall into either of these opinions about beauty: it is stupid and superficial and it doesn’t matter at all, so the best is to avoid it, or it is something we should always consider and maybe it’s even a kind of responsibility to for example look beautiful.
I think the search for beauty is so deeply and naturally inside us. And we can find it in so many ways and in so many things. It’s in colors, shapes, sounds, stories, anything. And searching for that is I think just one of the things we do naturally.
Trying to collect that beauty we can see in the outside world and in some way adding it to ourselves I think is the most natural, fun and uplifting thing to do. And there is nothing superficial about it.
I don’t think it’s in any way a responsibility to do this all the time, having those days when you do absolutely nothing to look nice, those are fun too. And in the end, noone or nothing can take away that true beauty that is always inside you.
The other topic I like is why believing in things still matter. I see a lot of times people automatically giving up on positive or idealistic ideas and just accepting things working not really as they should be.
I think believing in things still matter because everything that ever happened or got created is the result of someone or more people believing in something and then making an effort to make that real. So if we stop believing in good things, good things will actually disappear. And I think that is true about relationships or work or justice or basically anything.
Of course, things won’t be always as we wanted or imagined ideally. But there is certainly way more chance them to happen compared to the scenario where we didn’t even believe in them at the first place.
I had the most awesome idea today, I want to make a freelance space out of my apartment. When I’m here at home, it would be an open space for other freelancers and when I’m away it would be rentable.
I’m experiementing with more abstract styles, I really like now the type of drawing where you mix up different elements that you see around you, this is what I tried today at Massolit.
I started collecting colors, whenever I see something that has a great color I put in my collection, so far I collected parts of plants.
