I keep these remembrances on my storehouse of memory.

I like to keep them with me. I found them beautiful.

Hey angel. What does beauty mean to you? 

Hey angel,

It’s me again, Julia. I hope you are doing great! If you are new… Welcome on board! It was a pleasure meeting you 🙂

B.E.A.U.T.Y

Your beauty should not be defined just for your physical appearance. “We are” like a book cover. Strangers only see the outside which is a tiny representation of us. They will never know the way we are unless they get to know the person.

There two different types of people. The ones that look beautiful physically but they can be arrogant. On the other hand, there are people who don’t pretty physically but they have an excellent heart. What I am trying to say throuhg this post is that your beauty should be more defined for your personality than your physical appearance.

If someone’ personality is outstanding. Then, they will win more hearts than who don’t. The main purpose of this post is not to compare and contrast two extreme identities. Basically, it is to make understand the society that beauty has to do more for the way you are as a person than just about your physical traits.

Have a wonderful rest of the day! I hope to see around and please stay as long as you like!

The meaning of hands’ gestures

Hey angel,

Thank you for passing by. it is wonderful to see you again, and I hope you are doing great! Stay as long as you like. You are more than welcome to stay.

Back in High School time. I made one of the projects based on the ways people express their emotions through hands’ gestures. For me, It was a very interesting topic, and I have enjoyed doing research, and I come up with an idea of sharing it with you.

For me, in order to create a successful project, I have been observing the ways people express their emotions through hands. Besides the observations, I have been interrogating them to understand in depth my project. Some of the major questions were “What do you think about your hands” “would you be able to live without your hands?

Could you guess what was the most common reply to these questions?
“I won’t be able to live without my hands because I haven’t the faintest idea of the way I could express myself” It was shocking because it tells me that they will give up, and it is quite sad to think about it. Putting this aside, have you ever question to yourself “Which hands’ gestures might be offensive in some countries?”. For example, in Thailand touching other people’s heads or pointing to someone with an open hand are seen as bad manners so pay attention to it or get some knowledge before going to a country. It is always good to be aware of it.

In order to create my pieces of art, I have been influenced by different places around the world and people such as my friends and some family members. In addition, I was inspired by well-known artists like Henry Moore ( 1898-1986) who created a series of artworks called “The Artist’s Hand, 1979” when he created these artworks he was going through a rough time. He used to say “Hands can convey so much” “They can beg or refuse, take or give, be open or clenched, show content or anxiety. They can be young or old, beautiful or deformed”. When Henry created his pieces he has had a fascination for hands, he felt that he could express himself. Me ( Julia ) as an artist of this project I am not considered a person who has a fascination for hands but I like to see the way people express their emotions. I believe that people’s hands play an important role in our daily lifestyle. For instance, humans’ hands help us to manipulate things, communicate emotions verbally and through our body language. Some of the common actions some people do are biting their nails, this might show they are nervous or stress. Perhaps, this action is transformed into a new habit for them. Sometimes, it becomes a struggle to stop doing it.

One of my artwork was a photo of a couple which resemblance love. The fact that one of them wear a ring is already indicating to my audiences they married. I believe that love can be expressed in many varieties of ways. It can be transmitted through a relationship with your partner ( girlfriend/boyfriend ), friendship, love between a mother towards his child or vice versa. Basically, to any family member. Including material things like tattoos.

A random story

Again, an icy dawn on this distant planet, a desolately cold and uninhabited planet. There is no form of life, no trees, no animals, no people, only immense footprints covered by ice and that hides in each of us a desperately longed for desire and that perhaps illuminates our hope of finding a source of survival. Winding mounds such as we have never seen in our existence and sculpted mountains that evoke our imagination to the idea that perhaps one day there was life here as well. There was an intense and painful cold, every breath seems to get stuck in our lungs with such as an intensity that we thought we will die, it hurt us until our own breath. Only one thought keeps us on track, there is no turning back, our lives depend on this planet, on this dilated but beautiful and nearby moon that threatens the great white man sculpted in the mountain, but that sends us enough energy to continue. The moon was as bright as a million fireflies around us. We have been walking for two months in the middle of nowhere, in absolute silence, it envelops everything.

At first, the silence was sweet, intoxicating, almost hypnotizing. Today after sixty days the silence has become black and full of despair, our efforts are not bearing fruit, just seeing that mountain in the form of man controlling an inhuman being illuminates our day with a perhaps….this mountain is extremely different from the others, there was not only a human figure but it was in motion, in a gesture to control a terrifying being. The human being with angry and pleasant expression at the same time had perhaps achieved his goal. The crystal floor under our tired feet reflects our bodies covered by the special suits thanks to which we manage to survive in these extreme conditions, but these crystalline floors also reflect our smaller backpacks showing us that every day is more critical to all of us. We all come from the earth, from different parts of the world on that wonderful planet, now this planet is destroyed by the sun.

November 5, 2013

We have traveled in a ship prepared to preserve a small group of humans from that destruction and start from scratch on another planet. We have been traveling for a year now, we have been using our resources in the best way possible, however, our body mass has been reduced by thirty-five percent. We had begun to rationalize our food by trying to help us to resist until we found the right place to build our base. This planet is ours, it’s our last choice. The components of the settlement are nineteen people. There are a variety of ethnicities such as white, Asian, and African. There are unmarried people and young people who tried to survive in this isolated place after the catastrophe of the planet Earth.

Japan and Hong Kong

Hey angel,

Mayhap, I bet you you’re wondering why I’ve concluded this point. It has been for a little while certain people couldn’t ever tell the differences among Japan and Hong Kong. Ergo, let’s put our heads together to learn this.

Japan

  • It is a country in East Asia
  • Flag colors: a white background, but it has a red circle in the middle.
  • Japanese’ traditional meal is Sushi.
  • The official language is Japanese with a diversity of dialects. Additionally, other spoken languages are English, German and French.
  • Tokyo is the capital city
  • The country code is +81
  • Japanese yen is the currency

While in…

HONG KONG

  • It is a Special Administrative Region of China. Also, it is known as “one country two systems”.
  • Country code is +852
  • The official languages are Cantonese & English. Most of the international English schools teach Mandarin as an optional language instead of Cantonese. Cantonese has 9 tones in order to differentiate the meaning of words. On the other hand, Chinse said Mandarin have four tones and one neutral tone.
  • Hong Kong dollar is the currency. As stated by a website called CurrencyCoverter 1 euro equivales to 8.70 HKD
  • HongKongers traditional meal is chinese food.

Q1: “Design is a dreadful form of expression.”

Q2: “Freedom is the only style. That is why I never speak about beauty or beautiful products but “good products”… Nowadays, we have to face so many challenges,…so it is not really a priority to care for beauty. The only way for us is to focus on an ethic and ecological behaviour.”

Q3: “Physically it is more a fish than a building, which deviates quite a bit from what is being done today.”

Philippe Starck

Q4: “I’m trying to move towards making objects which are honest, objects for non-consumers, for “modern rebels”. Look, there are already millions of excellent chairs which are very comfortable, lamps which provide light, and so on. Is it necessary to create any more? The only question is: what will it bring to the human being who is going to use it? The urgent thing today is not to create a car or a chair which is more beautiful than another; what is urgent is for us all to fight with every means at our disposal against the fact that something is becoming extinct: love.

Q6: “Everything I do is a symbol. Everything, has a meaning.”

Q7: “The brain, intelligence and creativity. Because these are the real materials – these are the original materials. Before everything, you need a brain. When you know why you do it, when you have an ethical vision, when you try to give a better life to your friends and family, then any type of material is good. But I would always say plastic, because I’m a communist and I always want to make things more and more affordable. I want to reach the maximum I can, for everybody. Only mass-produced plastic objects can do this.”

The two rectangular pieces hanging against the wall are coming from Guangzhou, China.

The big table is coming from United Kingdom. Unlikely, I am unaware of the exact location as it is very old.

The transparents chairs were made by a french designer called Philippe Starck. Globally, these chairs’ are known as clear ghost transparent dining chairs.

The carpet is from Ikea.

The gigantic painting made over a piece of clothing comes from somewhere in China. Additionally, the two white and blue ceramic stools positioned in front of the artwork.

The three shelves are made of wood and it comes from Barcelona. It’s placed near to the big masterpiece.

This is natural light coming from the window. It’s wonderful! Let’s enjoy this moment for a couple of minutes 🙂


Furnitures’ origins and designers:

  • The sofa is from Indigo living
  • The two golden metal marble tables come from somewhere in China. The design is quite similar to pieces made by other designers. Nevertheless, the legs of these two tables are cross and have a circle underneath. Personally, these are more original.
  • The velvet cushion covers are from a shopping mall in Shenzen, China. The shopping mall is known as Luohu Commercial city.
