I love beauty and kindness and I find some beauty even in saddness. Love plants and animals and people as well, the coherent, real ones. No-game. Life is just experience, filtered by you. Will you be a scratched, dusty, noisy filter? Will you be a neutral filter? Will you be a sparkly stardust filter?
Inspire and be inspired. Enable and be enabled. Listen and be listened to. Let your soul dance to the music of the world. Dive in your inner world or expand across continents. Be colorful. Be summerish. Be spiritual. Be serendipity. JUST BE.
Really happy you are here I do hope you will let yourself inspired by this place where you landed. I love inspiring you, I think it’s an awesome way to spread love and cure the world. Maybe it’s nothing in the realm of trumps, fights, poor health and immigration camps… but let me let you...
Touring the Dublin Mountains | loop hike 🥾
Beautiful end of November hike guided by Ben Shorten, from My Bike or Hike. It did come as a surprise, as I cozied myself up in Dublin, that the public transport is far from stellar 🙃 There is only a handful of trails one can do using the public transport to the starting point – not...
Looking at people looking at art, in Venice Biennale
Apparently, my visit of the Venice Biennale was more about observing the other visitors than interiorizing the work(s). I honestly can’t say I was taken aback by most of it… but neither did I expect it to be so. It’s rather hard to bring in controversial work when you’re “representing the nation”. Yet, Cosmin...
What about Zalău? | participatory photo exhibition
Autumn 2020: it’s lockdown and I am going on my first artistic residency It’s in Zalau, a town of less than 50K in North-Western Romania. My plan in this residency was to look without expectations and enjoy time in a greener, breathier place than Bucharest. And, if I could, make people rethink their relationship to...
Photo work: The political theatre season – 2021-2022
To stage corona. To dramatize shame. To enact maternity. To (re)produce hospitality work. To listen to history. To sing delivery. To have solidarity in solitude. What does the labour of a commercial worker or a delivery wo/man mean in Corona times? How can one step in the shoes of those who just serves one’s needs?...
Decentralands, the new paradises of i-gaming and fashion?
Blockchain solutions continue to revolutionize entertainment and luxury More and more commercial brands join the e-space, a trend accelerated further by Zuckerberg’s announcement on the Metaverse. It might look like a business development potential for the i-gaming industry as well. Fashion brands are championing this brand move, with Gucci’s virtual sneakers available in Roblox and...
A few notes on the Creativity 4 Better IAA Conference #5
I should start by thanking Diana Flutur & Victor Dobre from IAA Romania for managing to pull the inspiring Creativity 4 Better online conference and bringing an engaged, curious audience in spite of the zoom event fatigue 👏 I really found great value in many of the sessions so here’s a briefish digest of Creativity4Better...
This will age really well | Co-curating the first NFT-centric exhibition in Romania
After my extensive and critical contributions in Revista ARTA and Revista 22, Ioana Marșic, artist and curator, promoter and making-happen-er of all sorts, reached out to me. Together with Leilei, Andrei, Andrei and Lucian, she was just starting to imagine a NFT-centric exhibition in Romania. But, besides playing around within this new crypto-realm, it was...
This is my personal space, the online place that represents me. Uncomissioned. Unedited when I want, filtered if I want. All work belongs to me, if not stated otherwise. I would be proud to see my photography help others in their creative endeavours, but I’d be really happy to hear from that creative.
Sincerely hope that my sources of inspiration will be sparkle for you, too.
Control is about as real as a one-legged unicorn taking a leak at the end of a double rainbow.
It’s not where you take things from, it’s where you take them to.
The part we create from can't be touched by anything our parents did, or society did. That part is unsullied, uncorrupted; soundproof, waterproof, and bulletproof. In fact, the more troubles we've got, the better and richer that part becomes.
The five colours make a man blind, the five tones make a man deaf, because if you can only see five colours, you’re blind, and if you can only hear five tones in music, you’re deaf. You see, if you force sound into five tones, you force colour into five colours, you’re blind and deaf. The world of colour is infinite, as is the world of sound. And it is only by stopping fixing conceptions on the world of colour and the world of sound that you really begin to hear it and see it.
