Exclusive artistic walk in the streets of Paris
My sisters & I signed up for this new surreal walk organized by Apple in partnership with the New Museum of New York. An experiment using augmented reality on iPhone and a pair of Beats, for an immersive audio-visual effect.
Six contemporary artists have created ephemeral works of art, you have Nick Cave, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Cao Fei, John Giorno, Carsten Höller and Pippilotti Rist. We entered their fascinating, strange and even crazy worlds, and we got to see, hear and feel, what art means in a different way.
If you are lucky enough to be close to one of the six Apple Stores that offer this walk, which is still available until the 5th September, then absolutely go ahead and do it… it’s beautiful, incredible and inspiring.
We went to the Silicon Valley…
I’ve wanted for a while to visit Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, and my dream came true !
First stop – at the Apple Store nearby, nicknamed “Visitor Center” where you can find cool goodies that you wouldn’t be able to get at any other store. Fun fact, they don’t have a Genius Bar… which makes sense, because it’s mostly a pit stop for tourists.
What’s nice is that they have a cafeteria. I loved the design of the building, it’s incredibly beautiful and aesthetic. They have a map of Apple Park inside, that you can visualize via iPads in augmented reality, which is fun.
Second stop for me is beyond limit for tourists – without going into details, I was lucky enough to experience the breathtaking circular spaceship that is Apple Park. It is absolutely bananas inside !
I can’t tell or share anything about it, except for my feelings which were basically : “OMGosh”, “Is this real life ?!”, “I can’t believe where I am right now !”, “Can somebody pinch me because I’m having a stroke”, “I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE !” pretty much… It was the highlight of my trip.
The Computer Era
I visited the Museum of Science and Technology in Belgrade, Serbia. It was incredible, they had so many cool things to see but my favorite was all the old computers that were exhibited… they even had a Macintosh Plus on display ! Never saw one in my life before, it was amazing 🙂

Hey everyone 😊 I’m blogging from my iPhone because my MacBook hasn’t been working well today, and I basically haven’t been able to do anything with it so I just turned it off and left it aside until tomorrow…
I’ll have it check up if the issue is still ongoing, but I’m just hoping for the best. It’s probably my fault again, the sh*ts I put my electronic devices through is crazy. I forget (aka am too lazy) to turn off my MacBook sometimes and it stays on for days : which is bad, don’t ever do that.
My guess is that the drive or whatever, is tired of turning almost non-stop. That’s why I opted for letting it cool off today, which means I can’t post what I was supposed to… plus, since the weekend is already here, that also means no blogging until Monday because I don’t work on weekends; I go out instead, and have fun ! 😛
But if you’re dying for updates, follow my Snapchat or Twitter, those two are like my survival kits when I’m staying off the grid (internet) they’re literally the only things I’m still checking on weekends & posting stuff to.
