I love the way the colors flow together and create that beautiful marble effect. I think I can recreate this effect with nail polish and water in combination with other materials and textures. I like the colour theme in this picture.

Material Research CSM library

These materials were my favorite finds at the library. The first one is especially interesting, it´s resin with crystals inside so you can´t actually touch the inside. I think that creates an reaction that you would like to touch it which inspires me for my publication because that´s the kind f effect I would like to reach.

Marjetica Potrč, Caracas: Growing Houses (Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin)

The rural culture of the Caracas barrios (which this artwork is about) has proved resilient to changes from the outside, particularly from the neighbouring urban culture. The barrio residents prefer to live in a city of communities and not in the modernist city of individualism. The use of different materials and colors informed my work a lot.

This exhibition was dedicated to Gianni Versace and his 80s to 90s pieces. I´m extremely fascinated by this part of the exhibition where a collection of silk scarfs was arranges on the ceiling. The colour combinations are so fresh and uptlifinting snd give me new ideas of using colour differently.

I like the way he arranged this small artwork randomly on a wall and made it look effortless. I think I could do confetti out of my photographs as well and stick them into my publication.

This bubble gum could be part of another collection in its bright colors. I would like to take a picture of making gum bubbles and print on bubble gum my "print fetishism" title.

This image inspired me for one of my shootings. I used a pink wig as well but in combination with water and pudding. I like his picture and the anonymity because of her hair cowering her face.

These two pictures are an homage to Dalston. He compelled to capture this place at its rawest and most beautiful, with all its flaws and smells before it too is transformed and disappears altogether, as time moves ever forward

I like the idea of doing a love up of the mouth in the video, I think I´ll do something similar.

Make up can inspire me a lot, I like the way it shines depending on the light. The glow and the glossy part makes me want to look for material that reminds me on that look.

A History of Senses by Robert Jütte (book)

The sensory perception of the beautiful shows that the mind needs not the assistance of the senses in the discovery of intellectual beauty. It is evident that the beauties of this kind are only discoverable by an intellectual perception, since the taste of the elegant pleasures they inspire, depends on knowledge.

I like the combination of this collection. I think a collection of different materials could show my theme well.

I think I could try to spray on my materials as well and film it. I like the humor in this picture.

I would like to buy a similar pudding to take pictures. The colour is amazing but I´ll probably look for a more pastel tone.

This picture is perfect for my project because it combines texture and colour made out of random things.

This Japanese artist informed my work a lot because of her aesthetics and use of colour. I like the way the picture was taken its´s a nice angle.

This campaign is amazing, it creates a mood without showing the clothes. It´s something different and I like the idea of using fruits matching to the makeup. I think fruits are a good material to show texture, they can be hard, soft, liquid, fluffy...so many different textures can be combined in suits which could be perfect for my publication.

This work makes me want to touch it and that´s what I would like to show in my publication. The combination of gross materials, flowers and kitsch sculptures combines many interesting materials and textures.

I like this sculpture of Jeff Koons because of the liquid looking part. I wonder which material it is, it could be resin maybe. I like the way he combined the basket ball with this kind of "water" looking texture. It´s an unconventional idea of combining materials. That is very inspiring for my publication to combine materials that you would´t think of combining in the first place.

I researched some artists that inspire me for my project such as Maisie Cousins. There is no need for her to appeal to nice She is not making an advert for a perfume, she is not interested in nice things, she likes grossing herself out. Her brightly coloured images do that, appealing to some of our most basic human impulses, the ones that make you want to squish something slimy or pick at a spot. She said that with social media and the internet you can stretch out your audience with your own control and push it in the direction you want which is a good point!

This artwork was huge and you couldn't tell what it is if you were standing close to it. With a distance you could see the images. I like this effect a lot and I wonder which kind of technology he used for that.

The make up is an inspiration for my publication. I could imagine using something like that on some close ups of eyes.

I like the combination of framed artwork and a poster next to it. It shows variety and freedom in the way of presenting work and different materials.

Bubblegirls Photograffitis by TILT (book)

These images inspire me a lot because they show texture. The bubbles are integrated in the photo as an example the bubble infant of the lens which creates an interesting effect. Our most basic human instincts make us want to touch and pop the bubbles.

The work of Lorenzo Vitturi who has a unique approach to photography helped me with my theme. I like his images and his use of colour.

Dazed 1998

I found this amazing drawing in an old Dazed magazine at the CSM library. I like the way it´s drawn, very lonely and not perfectly more abstract. I think this kind of technique is more interesting as we are able to take photos nowadays and we know how a real orchid looks like. I won´t draw in my publication but this helps me for inspiration in my sketchbook.

I love Mert Alas work, it´s always daring but never vulgar. This picture fits in my theme, I like the pose of the model and the glaze in the picture.

I think it´s a good idea with the liquid. I think it´s a possibility to use colored powder instead of the green water. I like the colors in this picture.

5 senses

library went to an exhibition by Jordan Wolfs and when I came back I had a look at the senses in the briery. There was a virtual reality work reflects the manic brutality of a witness’s iPhone video of real-life violence and translates this into a heightened, disorienting, and contextless experience. I never had a virtual reality experience before and it was very scary somehow. It helped me to understand how to `feel´visual things by seeing them but not beeing able to touch or interact with them, which is the opposite of what I want to achieve with my publication. But I am interested in exploring senses and feelings for this project and this was a great experience for me regarding finding new feelings of seeing something that doesn´t exist and you actually don´t want to see the violence but you are somehow forced to watch it because you can´t look away because you are wearing these glasses and headphones. YOu are not physically able to help this person which had a strong message for me, most people look away and don´t help but in this case I HAD TO LOOK but I wasn´t able to help.

The power of Wolfson’s work owes equally to the visceral impact of its complex, animated representations – which slide seamlessly from banal to violent, and from vividly imaginary to scarily real – and to its disturbing refusal to judge.

Mika Ninagawa

Living in an urban city filled with its unique aesthetics of ‘kawaii’ culture, and Japanese anime l, Ninagawa was greatly influenced by such creative surroundings. Among a variety of art forms, she found photography as the most emotionally direct way to express herself. She likes dark shadows, along with colours almost too bright and dazzling that she could go blind. I think it´s interesting how deep her connection with colour is.

The artist said that with social media and the internet you can stretch out your audience with your own control and push it in the direction you want which is a good point! Even if she uses gros materials she has the ability to make it fashionable and beautiful, if you take a closer look you can see the `disgusting`materials. I like this picture in particular because she can show so much with simplicity and not a lot of effort.

I like this artists work, her makeup is so different and perfect because it is not perfect. She combines beautiful colors and textures and translates make up in art.
