NYC

Roughly two years ago, I started to get NYC firmly stuck in my head -- now it rests firmly on my head until a rush of wind carries it away. Dreams are the most wonderous things: much like a loosely fitting hat they too can get torn away in a mere twirling of the air.
Chasing dreams to me is akin to chasing cars: they're quite sure to get away unless you have the steering wheel. I am now actually writing one of two books I have planned, tuesdays and thursdays are reserved for this exercise, right after coming home from work. There is nothing stirring me on; rather, it is actually me having to fuel this dream with time, dedication, and discipline. Sounds less glamourous than promises of fame, right?! But it may just get me there rather than my mere chasing of dreams getting me away from here.
Gute Fahrt!

Less than ten years ago...

...I got many a comment claiming that my sex wasn't all that clear! „Are you a girl or a boy?“ I heard often! I did my part, but, not consciously! Only about a month ago someone on the tube shouted at me by calling me „Tussi“, meaning as much as „Sloane Ranger“! I have come a long way, baby! My past me wouldn't have thought much of my present me! Boring and dull! But, oh, has my life won in color and tonal richness! My life is by far less excitng and less adventurous! Less cool parties to attend (via guest list, of course, darling) Less celebrities to admire from up close, less dreams to chase! More challenges to face head-on! In a strange way my life has gained authenticity over and above everything else! Which is odd as back then, I would have sworn to lead the real life: any dull and boring life would be ridden with escapism and delusions! Not so! Well, let me tell you, my prayer has been to live a REAL life! I never wanted Disney christianity! I wanted the pain and drama. Yet, death HAS lost its sting! Any challenge, no matter how terrible, has one common theme: ME! I am in it, not simply observing my life as though it were someone else's! I have become the protagonist of my life! Before, it was many a people's opinions being the author of my life! Now it is mine! Strange! Jesus says, whoever loses his life will save it! Losing more and more of my former me, as daunting as it sometimes seems, brings with it a profit like none other! Riches like peace can be bought for no treasure in this world! I would still give everything for this incredible gift!

making pretty things

How to get this garment? simple! surely you have an undershirt that has seen better days? dye it in fabric dye, bought for €2,20. Make sure all the residue is completely gone before proceeding! then, take an antique handkerchief, mine was a little stained from who-knows-what! so i dipped it in coffee, which leaves a really nice caramel color! You can use tea, too! even red tea for a different color! then simply cut your handkerchief in half ( i didnt go diagonal, as i didn't want to destroy the pattern in the corners) and stitch it to your shirt. bingo, now wear your shirt with a skinny little belt wrapped around you!

this is me in the result

what you get is what you see

the result of the process

coffee!

we work with this

this is how we start

nouveau realisme

cross-faded is PRETTY huge right now! well, the hard-core realism provided by use of the old fashioned top-flash is soon countering the present blur. Raw and upclose is on the up!
