INSTAGRAMABLE PLACES

INSTAGRAMABLE PLACES

instagramable places are those places that allow us to take a beautiful picture without much effort. i am not talking about art. i’m talking about a special kind of currency nowadays: our pictures shared on social media. most of the brands and people use social media to promote themselves. and often the promotion takes a...

EUROMAIDAN FIGHTS THE POWER!

euromaidan fights and it’s all over my facebook and twitter feeds. i cry in front of my screen because i feel their pain and anger. and because i doubt that i will ever be this ballsy and relentless in my fight. it’s fucking heartbreaking to watch this unfair war happening 800 km away from me....

MY NAME IS ANDREEA AND I AM AN INTROVERT

i have always seen myself reflected in the eyes of people as being weird. i didn’t understand it at first, but i was fine with it. so i had known for years that i was different, but it was only recently that i found out that i was actually just an introvert.

WE ARE NOT THE THINGS WE OWN

WE ARE NOT THE THINGS WE OWN

it scares me to see people fetishizing material things in an escapist craze while barely ever thinking about actual life. i see thousands of blogs and wall posts depicting lifeless perfect-for-the-camera pictures of girls wearing cute cookie cutter outfits and pictures of their lives defined by perfect arrangements of objects. it’s as if they’re hoping that...

ACTA OR HOW THE FUTURE MAY END UP LOOKING WORSE THAN OUR COMMUNIST PAST

WHY TRAVELING ALONE CAN BE A GOOD THING

WHY TRAVELING ALONE CAN BE A GOOD THING

PRINT OR ONLINE FASHION MAGAZINES?

amazon announced earlier this year that their sales are better for kindle books compared to regular print books. it’s no surprise, right? paper is losing ground: books are becoming obsolete while glossies are fighting lack of ads and the natural communication delay that comes with the monthly issue. i see print fashion magazines dying to...
I CALL BULLSHIT ON EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP

I CALL BULLSHIT ON EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP

was exit through the gift shop for real? i think it was total bullshit. i noticed none of banksy’s subtlety and genius in there. there was this guy with a distorted voice, in the shadow. that could’ve been me, right? also, how could he have possibly complained about the unlawful use of his “name”? file a complaint signed banksy…?...
