Foot fetish?

Two weeks ago I went to the photographic lab with 5 negatives I had undeveloped for a year or so. I scanned it and now, two weeks later, I'm looking through them. One thing made me a little bit curious - Why I have so many pictures of my feet? It's something I can't explain, so please don't ask me about it. Fortunately I think some of them aren't so bad and I decided to show them. Maybe I could make a personal foot fetish collection or a book and one day perhaps I'll become real queen of decadence.

Happy late Valentine's Day everyone.

As I announced earlier, I did my entrance art exams last week to studio of Federico Díaz called Supermédia. You might want to ask what the hell is that and to be honest it's very hard to explain. According to my opinion is combination of expressing artist's mind and usage of unexplored and good known technologies... It's totally up to you what you will use to make your art. It's really fantastic, because you can do whatever you want to. Some people think that this is only about video making and using computer, but I think you don't need computer, because medium is everything what tells something. Probably, I'm not saying I'm 100% sure I'm right, what I'm telling is just my opinion.

I should probably tell you how I did during those exams. I got into the second round, what means I went through the first tasks, which is kind of cool, I didn't get so far last year. Second day, they gave us a short history test. It was very very hard and to be honest I think I didn't do that well in this test, but we'll find out soon, same as well marking of interviews, another tasks. I'm Ok with both possible results.

And I definitely want to share some works with you guys so here you go...

This should be the my self-portrait, just like an exercise. I know it looks more like Phantom of The Opera mask, but I really like it, so that's why it's here.

I made this when I was in Canada and I was waiting for guys to pick me up, I had such a passion to start draw again. So I found one really great photo and wanted to make it little bit more abstract. didn't ended up so bad, don't you think?

And finally this should be my self-portrait I've been working on lately, unfortunately my sister doesn't think it looks like me, and maybe she's right... Well I guess I'm not such a good artist... but that's how I see myself.

Fashion As a Medium

A year ago I did entrance exams to AAAD (VŠUP for Czechs), Faculty of Fine Arts, Supermedia studio. It's new studio and everyone is asking what is it about. I won't be explaining since I'm confused as well, but point of this post is, I'm doing those exams again. Next week!!! It's very hard to get there, because they take only 2-5 students into one studio. Anyway I see some things differently this year. We applied there with my friend/classmate doing graphic design and decided to make some project together. To be honest I had some ideas but I was kind of lost. My friend, Denisa, she likes to work with bubble wrap so our project was with this "medium" and she made this fabulous transparent coat from it and I took pictures...

...If I remember right point of this project was that person is not created by clothes, but personality, that's why it was transparent. Fashion piece what shows everything under.I didn't get there neither she, but year passed and I have to think about it again. I've learned how to sew, I found some inspiration and I got this perfect idea that the thought from last year is not true, fashion can be perfect medium to express whatever you want to express; T-shirt could be used as a clean canvas, and not only T-shirt! So I'm re-thinking everything I did last year and maybe that's the way...  We all grew up, right?

My Little Macroon

It's like get a box of new pastels.
Last summer Elle Magazine in USA said about this yummy, that it's most stylish candy. Of course they are cute but mainly they are so delicious. I saw them for the first time two years ago when I went to Paris. I didn't buy them because the looked so expensive, but since this summer we have luxurious french bakery across the street and we bought them. For the first time I found sweet I really enjoy, of course I love gummy bears, chocolate, but this is something special it's not so sweet but the taste is fantastic. Since that we buy it time to time and take a little piece of heaven.
