Is the reason to go to Berlin!

I highly recommend anyone that is in Berlin or has a chance to go to go to the Hamburger Banhof Museum. You will not regret it!

I went there two weeks ago, and I loved it! I only got to spend a few hours there, but if you can it’s well worth spending at least half a day there, if not longer.

I saw to the Walton Ford exhibition (Ive previously posted about him), which I’d never heard off, and nearly found my self crying at two of his pieces. I love art, but it’s NEVER really touched me on another level. But Walton Ford really did.

The art displayed in the museum is contemporary, and some of it I didn’t really get, but there’s something about walking around the place that just inspires me. Kind of like how I feel when I’m t the V&A.

McFaul Studio Talk

Posted in Design, New Media by Sophie Kinnane on February 8, 2010

Today we had MacFaul come and talk to us at our uni, John actually started the course I’m on. I found the talk really inspiring, I don’t particuarly like their illustration style, but I really admire their work ethic. Above all i just found my self sitting there, thinking I really need to start working harder, and that I need to get my self out there more. So this is the main reason for the blog.

The Transmediale festival held in Berlin from 2-7 Feb was last week.

Most of these were taken by my friend Evelina, so all the wicked pics are hers! Here are some pics of the event:
