Imaginary animals



During the weekend the rain came and ate up the snow. This didn't stop me and Robert from heading out on a few field trips though. We walked around in wet grounds and saw a place we've never seen before. As always I wished to see some animals, but even if I didn't, I can imagine that they were there. I bet they were hiding under a leaf, watching us from a distance :)

We had mid-crit evaluation of our bachelor project today. I don't think it went very well. Some of my classmate say I only heard the bad in the criticism, some say the teachers didn't make any sense and that it wasn't constructive. I'm voting for the last. But the teachers were in an off mood today, only willing to point out the bad.
Every time I get an email where people ask what school I go to, I say that I study Industrial design but that I do not recommend this education. If you like what you see on this blog, don't study design. The upside of studying something so static is that you tend to daydream even more... you search even deeper for that dreamy place... and without that, many of my pictures might never been created!

  1. How lovely! <3

    Isn't it interesting how the whismical, dreamy ideas all come from very harsh, numerical studies? It's so fascinating. And I'm sorry you had to go through such a horrible critique! I'm glad you're not taking it too much to heart.

  2. Thank you Masha :)
    It's true, I remembered when I work as a waitress, never before did I want to do something creative really bad. So my teachers have been right with one thing so far - you can't find creativity by doing something creative. The funny thing is, my education is supped to be creative... but it feels the opposite way and therefor it makes me more creative in other fields :)

  3. hello
    remember what Josef Albers the Artist and Teacher said in science 1+1 always =2 but in Art it can be 3 or more
    I always thought this was a most liberating idea as anything is possible with the imagination
