is it day or is it night?.. which one do you want it to be?

Crazy that i’m only able to see life through my own eyes.. there’s over 7 billion other perspectives i’ll never be able to have.. over 7 billion stories i won’t ever be able to fully know. we all get such a small slice of the experience of life.. pass by strangers every day that we’ll never be aware of. what are they going through? what are they thinking about? i always wonder..

3D Printing Fashion

Good Afternoon.

Today the post is more unusual and personal.  Three weeks ago I have presented my Major Project- my App concept idea to my tutors. Later that day, I have submitted all of my documents, essays, posters etc..  Tadahh. Its all finish. 1 final major project, 1 Dissertation, 11 modules, 100 mental breakdowns and 3673 tears later I ready for my graduation on 12th of July ... 4 years of best/ worst days of Uni is over... 
Today with my post I want to share with you all the idea about my project and all the upsides and downsides. Let's Start with the idea themselves and the possibility of creating something so unique was a great challenge. The project initial hypothesis is about hybrid interaction which contributes to a personalisation of the fabricated object and the impact on design concept.  . Thus, supporting the exploration of digital fabrication approach, introducing craft qualities into digital domain. 
"Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown." A flurry of new exciting technologies is signalling the birth of a new medium, not yet completely understood, not yet fully imagined. There is a conviction, that anyone dreaming about a particular model of the garment should be able to materialise it on a computer screen in the near future....
University was a great place to let me to experiment and create something different. A future shaped by algorithm, generative data and 3D printing technology are having revolutionary impact on design. I have collaborated with a company called Materialise with printing the dress at "one go" with no additional assembly using material TPU 91A and SLS (selective Laser Sintering) Method. My bestie who is 3D designer helped me with designing the dress using Marvellous Designer and 3D's Max and Zbrush Software. I was really inspired by people like Iris Van Harper, threeAsFour and Nervous System. There is also an amazing exhibition happening in New York Manus x Machina Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Fashion and technology is merging into one hybrid element which is all about designing the future fashion experiences. This is why I called my project "Hybrid Fabrics" Thinking about what it is that we want to do and achieve, where we wish  to take our craft or what creative milestones challenge us the most"Design is a type of communication about the way object or idea speaks to its audience. Good design not only get its message across but engages in conversation.” (Kinfolk, 2016)

White Shirt

It wrinkles my brain to think that there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth. And it wrinkles my brain again to think there are more atoms in a few grains of sand than there are stars in the known universe. We are utterly enveloped in vast and invisible worlds… No wonder I can never find anything in my bag ;)

Don’t you want to be alive before you die?

It must be a Monday, it feels like it. I continue to be in a endless state of delirium, joy and stress. I recently get my results from dissertation: 86%. I wrote about Consumer Engagement in Online Social Media .The final result makes me really happy ♥ ❤  Howbeit, now is the most difficult project, my very last University Project. I still can't believe I will graduate on Twelve of July... Oh man! How time flies! The project is about R&D company, where I am coding an app (yep, I know how to write a piece code in Objective-C and makes it work!). I also want to print a 3D garment, hopefully I will have a chance to share photos of it with you all and talk about it in more details! Lastly, with a help of my dear friend I want to create a virtual model and catwalk show and animate it, to create a fully immersive experience. I really like idea about virtual Catwalk shows. Finger Crossed, I only have time till 16th of May! I really happy to see how all my sleepless nights and hard work coming together. I am beyond excited and feeling so blessed. 

Happy Sunday

Isn’t it strange that we talk least about the things we think about most?

❝I have the deepest affection for intellectual conversations. the ability to just sit and talk. about love, life, anything, and everything.❞

If only I could write how much I missed blogging. This is my first new photo post since July. When I start working on full time basis, I have meet a lot of new faces and soon back to university responsibilities, my free time reduced to near-zero. For the last eight months my life was on the go 24/7. On Saturday I've submitted my dissertation about consumer engagement and online media and I can not even stress enough how much relieved I feel now. However there is still one more project to go! Wish me luck ❤︎ With this blog I aim to continue to improve and reach a certain level of capability with photography and writing. Allowing my brain to wander through myriad thoughts and weird places for more artistic vibes. For me inspiration can be found in the most unassuming places. Usually it could be found at a long walk, early morning, when sun breaks through the clouds and the silence float in the air. It is where somebody takes control of monitoring traffic. This creative brainstorming ideas, usually came while walking, recreating or perhaps working on other unrelated subject. This present how creative act came to be associated with 'divine inspiration for the illumination to be appear to be involuntary. I've watched a great video today from Ted Talk today from Shonda Rhimes- 'My year to saying yes to everything.' I really recommend you to watch it, at some point. We all need the hum but also, we all need the silence in order to charge the creative batteries...

From, where you wake up is a good place to start new adventure.
