Skin / Structure : On Top of Tate

It is on the top of new Tate Modern that I visited on the opening week in Southbank Area of London which I surprisingly discovered this hidden palette of Tate’s beautiful brutalist skin. I took some film images, which resulted as a great colour blocking inspiration and geometric composition, perfect for Pinterest. As we are not drone and never will be, seeing from the bird-eye viewpoint makes me feel more free and floating. The squares and lines of the industrial facades, encouraged by the right mix of colour, are strangely calming. Modernism dream in this Concretopia society.

Peaceful London : Highgate Cemetery

Perched on a hill above the smoke and the crowd of London, Highgate Cemetery is a peaceful and magical village of the post lives.  There, a wealth of gothic tombs and Victorian romantic graves live in harmony, entwined with overgrown woods and nature. It is a home to many famous people e.g. Karl Marx  Not very usual to visit a cemetery during Christmas, but I’m always been intrigued by its beauty and mystery. I have written about Glasgow Necropolis and Cimetière du Père-Lachaise in Paris. A cemetery is never a hang out spot, neither a creepy/goth area, but the place of contemplation, bringing in peace of mind.

Walk in London : The Monocle Christmas Market 2015

Christmas comes early this year, as the fourth annual Monocle Christmas Market took place at Midori House, the office of Winkreative design studio and Monocle, on last weekend (5-6th December 2015). After weeks of stress and pressure from college work review, I was successfully filled up with cheerful joy, chirstmas-sy vibe by these fellow friendly reindeers, shared mulled wine, amazing cheesy Swiss raclette, Mast brothers chocolate and other brands I love. I am now trying to shoot more in video as a moving-image practitioner.
