URBAN DOLLS // DESIGN FACTION // Zamek Cieszyn (Poland)

I wanted to share with you a picture I have received from Kasia Jezowska. Kasia’s curated Design Faction exhibition (my Urban Dolls project is part of this touring exhibition) had a huge success in Lodz Design Festival 2011, and  Kasia was asked to show her exhibition once again, but this time in another town of Poland – Cieszyn. The exhibition was on 3-12 February 2012 in Zamek Cieszyn. Thank you Kasia, due to this event I had a record high my website views.

Yayoi Kusama @ Tate Modern

Last weekend Mindaugas and I went to Yayoi Kusama exhibition which is currently on in Tate Modern. Not mentioning 30min queuing up for a ticket (5 cashiers were open), we have managed to get it. Inside of the exhibition as we have expected was – crazy. I never seen so many ‘art thirsty’ people running around, as all 14 rooms were full. I would like to share with you my favourite pieces that I photographed using my best undercover photography skills.

Weekend in Göteborg

It is so nice to travel when somebody is waiting for you. My dad is temporarily working in Sweden, so we couldn’t miss a chance to go and see him, so  3 weeks ago, Mindaugas and I went to snow covered and freezing Sweden, which we found very exotic and extremely cold, as at that time when we left London we were enjoying +8C.

Last evening, small Text gallery based in WC1 was completely packed with people who came to the opening of Imaginary Menageries exhibition, where 19 designers from all around the world were exhibiting their tongue-twisting interpretations.

Urban Dolls Contextual Report / Mum who am I?

This is my Contextual Report for my final year project. In this paper, I propose that there is no need to undergo expensive, psychologically and physically painful procedures in finding your perfect look. Essential parts of the human psyche – confidence and self-esteem – could be easily lifted and ‘healed’ not just by a few cuts and stitches made by the surgeon, but also by through various design contexts and practises.

Stool

Yesterday I did this small DIY project.
I always found this stool very unattractive, so by painting its legs and making soft cushion I brought it back to its glory. I have included a picture to see how it looked before and after.
