I ♡ London



  










Full set here.


In London...
I fell in love with Portobello Road,
I drank a lot of tea and not that much coffee,
I had cupcakes for the first time,
I sat on a red bus,
I got scared because it drove on the wrong side of the road,
I took photos of red telephone booths,
I bought nesting dolls,
I went analog and came back with two rolls to process.


Merci Laetitia!

Seeing Voices




You may not know this but I can Sign Language. I used to speak it on a daily basis when I still lived in France and it's actually one of the few things I miss from my life back there. This video was a sweet reminder of some of projects I had regarding my favourite language and I hope you'll love this movie as much as I do. - Adeline. 

"As a result of being born deaf, my perceiving process is shaped by American Sign Language interpreters, subtitles on television, written conversations on paper, emails, and text messages. These communication modes convey, filtered and limited information, which naturally leads to a loss of content and a delay in communication. Thus, my understanding of reality is filtered, and even potentially distorted. This is at the core of my practice as an artist and through this I am now able to take ownership of sound. I perform, vocalize, and/or visually translate them based on legitimacy of my perception." - Christine Sun Kim.

Caffeinated Consciousness




I can't remember how or when it started but Pantone® has been a obsession of mine for years. The brand is well know for its colour matching system but it has also become a hipster phenomenon and yes, Pantone cups are high on my wishlist. What can I say? It combines for my love for colours and my love for classification. (Did you know I'm also a Dewey Decimal Classification nerd?) Then comes this box in.  We found it in Paris and I just had to have it. It's pretty. It's useless. I love it. And I'm thinking of putting all 100 of these cards up on the wall of my bedroom. That would be a pretty sight to wake up to, don't you think?

Taking Oslo Back


"The last few days have been heavy and unreal. Our thoughts go out to everyone who has lost someone or in some other way has been affected by the tragedy in the centre of Oslo and at Utøya. We send our condolences and compassion to the people who are struggling right now. These are times for mourning and reflection, and we know that many will now have to use all their time and energy on working through what has happened. In the midst of all this, we find it important that our city and its citizens shall not be broken by what happened this weekend. Organisers of concerts and events in Oslo have jointly agreed that this shall not stop us. The Police, the Government and the general audience have expressed a strong wish that Oslo resumes some kind of normality as soon as possible. Together with the population of Oslo and visitors from abroad we wish to take our city back. Festivals, concerts and other cultural or sports events are meant to be arenas for common experiences, unity and positive impressions during hard times. We hope that our events can help ease the sadness and also be good meeting places in the days and weeks to come. We wish to take Oslo back by once again filling it with the great variety of cultural activities this city is known for and also by spreading a clear message that our population wants to take care of each other."



Now do me a favour, pretty please, take a few more minutes to read this and if you feel like it, join. Thank you.

Loving... being able to finally wear the shoes I bought in New York last September.

[Oh Hello Oslo] Dan Colen at Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art





"Based on elements from mass media and experiences from contemporary life with a subcultural language, he creates a personal remix that highlights beautiful and magical aspects of undervalued, everyday life. His artistic production encompasses photographs, painting and sculptures, and includes, among other things, Disney motifs and chewing gum on canvas."
