Stardust Memories/Breath-les

The vibes are in black and white today which is kind of nice. Black and white feels more authentic sometimes, perhaps because it eliminates colour as a distraction and allows one to focus more on form, action and the contrast between light and dark. Although a huge ambassador for colour, sometimes it's calming to watch a film in black and white or to do some photocopying in black and white or desaturate my photographs.

I've had a day in the studio today, not an altogether productive day but technically I'm on my week long 'mid-semester break' so I'm entitled to a little bit of 'down time'. Really I should be writing essays, proposals, slapping paint on as many surfaces as I can get my hands on... but so far I've just been losing myself in films and utterly ridiculous circumstances with friends. It's nice.

I like being in the studios on the holidays because it's so quiet. When no-one is around it's great because I can play music and hum to myself without feeling self conscious and have a great sticky beak into some of the teen angsty first year studios. I dunno today was a good day. Hope yours was too.


  1. Ahh I'm glad to hear you had a nice day. Sometimes it's just so relieving to sit down and relax with a nice film.

    I really love these gifs, they look like they could be from a movie! Your outfit is perfect too.

  2. Thanks Kailey!
    P.S Just checked out your latest post, I'm so jealous of your record collection! Gi Gi oui oui!! xoxo

  3. Aw thank you! It definitely has been a labor of love finding them and I am very proud of what I have found thus far :D
