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.
I’ve been sharing a lot of pictures and videos I’ve taken prior to getting my MacBook, just because I don’t want them to go unseen. So bare with me, because there’s still a bunch to go and once I’m done with that it will be all-new content.
It’s actually kind of therapeutic because I’m also classifying my files, and updating my online stuff – which has been a huge mess to deal with. At first, it seemed so depressing, like how the heck am I ever going to be done with that… but as the days go by, I’m really starting to see the end of the tunnel.
I feel relieved and freer now that I have a computer and I can plan, re-arrange and work on ideas I couldn’t let myself focus on. There are some people who will tell you that, you don’t need the “right equipment” to get going, but I don’t think it’s necessarily true – at least not for me.
I needed this to kickstart myself, and I’m so happy I managed to make enough to finally afford it, and that I never gave up on my priorities no matter how difficult some days were. Keep on believing in yourself, and do what it takes to get what you need to make your dreams come true.
When I’m not feeling my best, I know I can always count on my sisters to cheer me up. We’ll do hangouts for fun, shopping sprees, restaurant dates, urban exploration or big ass vacay and even karaoke nights !… whatever we choose to do, it always brings good laughter and a high dose of craziness. We’re best friends and always there to support each other.
I went to this amazing contemporary museum in the north of Paris, the architect is Frank Gehry – they’re having the best exhibition I’ve ever been to, on Impressionism. They have these beautiful famous paintings, going from Renoir to Degas, Manet & Gauguin and so many more ! It’s a sight for sore eyes : I’ve only ever seen these works of arts in books before…
My boyfriend came along and he took those two pictures of me that you’ll see below; I really enjoy sharing a cultural moment with him, it truly is important to me as Art has always lifted my soul and spirit, and I feel blessed I can have that with him as well.
I promised you guys an Advent Calendar type of month, posting a blog update every single day until Christmas… I got so excited by the idea but I completely lost track of it, and today is my 10th post of the 24th I said I would do;
I still want to get them all done, but I don’t think I can manage to post a bunch to fill out those other days I missed out. It’s going to be a lot of work, and with my current job and private life, it wouldn’t be reasonable. & I know some of you are going to think there’s no bother in trying to do that anyway, because I understand that you’re glad I came back blogging at all, but it was important to me as I challenged myself and I wanted to succeed in that matter.
Plus it was highly motivating, as the new year’s coming I wanted to change my bad habits and adopt new ones, so I can become a more hard-working person, someone who goes after her dreams and completes them.
I was watching the new season of Fuller House on Netflix the other day (…yes, I’m desperately addicted to Netflix) and in one of the episodes DJ was referred to as the “bye girl”, the kind of girl that forgets all about her friends and other commitments once she gets into a relationship : I realized that was me !
I started a job at Apple last February, it’s my first job & I really wanted to imply myself fully in it. Then I met my boyfriend with whom I fell so in love that I wanted to spend all my free time with, leaving out my personal projects unaccomplished.
It was him who started motivating me to take back my projects, and come back to this, between other things. I feel very blessed to have someone like him in my life, I want to respect my path and I won’t let go this time around, even if it takes me a couple tries before I get there. I will not be the “bye girl” – I got my wake up call.
I went to Zurich a couple weeks ago to see my best friend and we shot a bunch of photoshoots together – she modeled for me. This was an inspired look from the burlesque era. She was pretty thrilled with the results so I hope you’re gonna like the idea as much as she did, took me a while to edit this set but with much excitement 🙂 I also did her makeup.
