“Think 8 hours, work 2 hours.” —Mirko Ilic
It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world. Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm fog.
I took advantage of Thursday’s sun-shine-moments to do some sunny eco prints.. <3
I mean that it is Sun printing it is friendly it is beautiful and quiet. The Sunlight is fixing the paint into the textile, it really is washable and really is long-lasting. Years ago I felt totally in love with this process, since then I was trying to research it a little bit more and now I can actually do it. well you really need to have a heat and you need to have the sunlight so in Sweden it is like few-weeks-a-year process, it makes it even more exciting. The waiting for the right time and for the right temperature and then to really quickly organise the work on the surface, I think this is that one part I really like the most. You think but you cannot overthink, it just to pick the flowers you have around you and you only have this few minutes because otherwise your paint is fixed by light even if you do it inside of the house. So it's a quick, no thinking, intuitive process and the effects are amazing. in shop
So there is a Medusas head.. filed with destructive rage and vengefulness as a part of the story it also tells of sexuality power mastery and freedom as an offering of oppressed woman.
But was Medusa really the evil creature she is portrayed to be?
Did she really wish a stoney death to all who met her gaze?
Maybe Medusa wept for that which she saw. Her own heart was strangled by the coldness which ran through her veins when she gazed into the souls of the eyes
that met hers.
What would be reflected back at you? At me…?
Are there any cold shards… surrounding your and my heart that need to be delicately released and cleared?
As an offering of oppressed woman. The mental anguish..invisible pain, invisible shame. The only reflection of the pain in the face.
The absent face.
Im my story medusas head is gone, just like that, cut, severed,
what remains when the fear is gone… is love.
And If you’re not familiar with the story of Medusa; here is a quick overview:
Medusa was a beautiful protector of Athenas temple, seduced by the angry or vengeful Sea God Poseidon, who really wanted, unsuccessfully, to win Athenas hearth.
Athena, already jealous for her Medusas bountiful beauty and her hair, angry that the sanctity of her temple was violated, turned Medusa’s hair to snakes and made her gaze so terrifying it turned men to stone.
Medusa retreated to a small garden isle to live in seclusion with her two gorgon sisters. However, the isle slowly became covered with stone statues as heroes and warriors sought her out to slay her…
One such hero, Perseus, set out on a conquest to kill Medusa. Athena helped Perseus succeed by lending him her shield and he has bee aid by other Gods too…
Perseus used the shield as a mirror to avoid Medusa’s gaze as he cut off Medusa’s head and slipped it into a magical sack.
From Medusa’s neck, her two unborn children: the winged horse Pegasus and a golden giant warrior, sprang forth.
Her head was a potent weapon that help Perseus win many battles.. just a drop of the blood from her head could kill or heal a city..
One drop from her head has coloured a whole sea in red.. the Red Sea.
This was a most powerful and potent head in a history..
Athena placed Medusa’s head on her shield as a protection in times of the war…
And so has Mezuzas never fading promise to protect Athena manifested itself…

In a dream I was a boy who went out from a village, when he return he could not enter his home.. during his absence black dressed intruders took over his life family and home.
He walked away and he was desperate, did not knew what to do and he wondered for days and nights, at the end he found himself in the mountains. He screamed and cried for help... suddenly the Earth started moving.. huge figures made of Earth and stone started to appear as if waking up from deep sleep, slowly Mountain Kings and Warriors arouse from underneath the ground and from stones of the mountains.. They said they came to help..
The body and mind appear inextricably linked. And findings from a new study published in Cancer by a Canadian group suggest that our mental state has measurable physical influence on us – more specifically on our DNA.
The drawing is a a present i received from a relative, he found it in some abandoned polish house and gave it to me as I could not get my eyes of it, while staring at it for days I started to see the male face looking more and more as a woman. So i scanned it and started adjusting and then other subjects continues emerge from it. It is clear this image now also follows the development of the polish new situation regarding the same sex marriages.. or maybe it did from the start. The whole process remaining on the same photo is rather fascinating in a way that also the drawing seems to react to the process..
The black and white image at the end of the slideshow is the EYE COVER you can print&cut out one for yourself..
When I stare into space
I'm looking for you
And I can see you
I'll be around
To pick up your phone
I'll be around
It is incredibly interesting to consider how the emotional pain of a breakup can actually be felt physically. You know, the tightness in your chest, nausea in your stomach. Two studies (linked below) looked at the brain activity of people who were going through a breakup and found that the reward systems were not the only areas of the brain which had been activated, but also the regions of the brain which control distress and physical pain. The areas of the brain that capture pain sensations were quiet, but the systems those are tied to, the ones that determine how the body reacts to pain, were telling the body that something bad or “painful” was happening. The brain controls functions of the body, which can lead to the release of stress hormones, which in turn can have grave impacts on the body’s well-being. Breakups can actually lead to some pretty extreme conditions, such as takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as “broken heart syndrome,” which is caused by the heart weakening and expanding under this kind of emotional stress. Although rare, this can lead to death.

Since last summer I photograph my neighbours and friends just under my window.. Vanadis Cofee & Photography just opened yesterday for summer season when noticed my neighbour, Camilla, walking with freshly cut branches, and the immediate photo-shoot followed.
Moving places lately is is so intense i think i can't really handle it , as soon as i get to know a place a little better there is time to move on.
inspired by some ghosty image i tried to shoot this layered concept that i so much like
particularly liking the amber-like colour and effect the natural dyes had on silk, dyed with dried St. John's wort that has left marks on the surface, my old- feeling -lovig isoul s content.
