LOVE WALK CARE HOME VISIT || 13.2

I took my scent along to the care home just down the road from my house. Along with the scent I took a selection of imagery, a colour wheel and textiles of varying textures and feels.

I began by asking the residents what the thought of the smell, what it reminded them of and what they thought upon smelling it. From this I had a variety of answers such as citrus, soap, lemons, strawberry, fabric softener and polo mints.

I then spread out some images across the table and asked the residents to choose which image they would associate with the scent. This was great as they really thought about it and picked some lovely imagery which I can now use towards visualising my project.

I then asked them to associate a colour from the colour wheel, the majority agreed the scent smelt either yellow or red.

I had prepared different textiles which represented different textures and feels…soft, smooth, bumpy, rough etc. The group told me which they liked and why, and that mostly they would associate the scent to a soft, smooth, spongey and bubbly fabric.

We then went on to do some weaving together o some handmade looms i had prepared using fabric straps of all different textures. This was great as they really participated and have made some lovely pieces I can use towards my project.

Oh if only we were all as romantic as former pop sensations PJ and Duncan, aka Ant and Dec. I’m off to cook dinner, for one, and watch TOWIE, alone…

HAPPY VALS!

But the real thing (film) is always the best. 

Menton, Cannes, Nice and Maddie mon petit pois! (that’s all the french i can muster)

I love this; ‘Don’t think you’re a photographer just because you have instagram’ and totally agree, but I’m equally as hypocritical as I don’t have an iPhone, (i wish) but I do have a pretty convincing camera app, and it makes normal pictures look realllyyy coooool. 

Ex, above. I went to the south of france in January and it looks like summer! Big lolz

I’M TWENTY ONE!
Time to get things back on track - get back to Berlin, secure a new internship, find somewhere to live, buy a bike; ride my bike, get a sewing machine; sew, go to gym; get in shape, the list is endless. 
Big plans? Best start by going for a big fat birthday Steak. Laterz

Whilst doing some research for work today i have somehow stumbled across the work of Craig Atkinson, publisher of Cafe Royal Books. 
I am particularly intrigued by his ‘found photo’ series. He buys 35mm cameras from charity shops if they contain film, the images attained from the film are then creating into a book. I have always loved the idea of finding things in charity shops creating stories about the objects past life. Atkinson couldn’t have put it better ‘ I don’t know whether the photographer is alive or dead, whether the camera was donated as a gesture of good will or cleared out of hatred. It’s exciting to know I’m the first person to see the images that someone, possibly many years ago, has taken.’

Another hungover Sunday in Berlin and I’ve managed to waste about 5 hours of the day on YouTube. Did discover these gals though and I think they are my newest obsession 

It’s Friday the 13th, I have an interview, and have accidentally dyed my finger blue.
Good job I’m not superstitious, eh?
