POLAROID LOVE

It’s insane how much this girl must have spend on polaroid film, but I love what she does with it.  You can find her on deviantart as ‘pheebsyeahbaby’, but nowadays she has a blog called ‘Lightning heart‘.  Now that we’re talking about polaroids, does anyone have good experience with 600 film from the impssoible project?  I’ve tried the silver shade, but none of the images came out well.  I’d love to hear your experiences!

all those sleepless nights and all those wasted days

– Too afraid to love you – The Black Keys (*)

 

For the longest time I have been a fan of Lieke Romeijn’s photography, so I figured it was about time to share her work here.  You can find more fascinating photographs at her website or at flickr, where she’s known as liekeroomijs.  Not only does she has an eye for photography, the texts that accompany her pictures are wonderful aswell.  I won’t waste anymore words on this young talent from the Netherlands.  Go see for yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(*) I will be going to their concert tomorrow!  I’m so excited because I’ve never seen the Black Keys before and I’ve been a fan for quite some time now.  Hopefully they can live up to my high expectations!

 

edit: turns out, I blogged about lieke and her photographs before in this post.

PRINT


I’ve showed you all the articles in Unité that I worked on… I figured I should show them in print aswell, so here they are!  I hope you enjoyed all my enthousiasm about this first issue, now it’s time to start working on the next one and hope it’ll be at least as good!

(t)huiswerk

In this old factury, originally used for retting flax, Joke Vermeulen & Francis Catteeuw of compagnie-O. architecten are working to transform it into their home.  8 years they’ve been working on this amazing project, and in a few months, it’s finally supposed to be finished.  With Unité, we got a sneek peak  for oursection (t)huiswerk, where we visit architects in their homes.  The story behind this project is very interesting, and can be found in our first issue on page 13, although only in Dutch.  It’s too much to translate (or even summarize), so I will leave you with these pictures.  I hope they speak for themselves, because I’m extremely excited about this project!  The view is amazing, and I love that it’s so pure and industrial, while still being one with the environment.

LA FILLE DE JOUJOUELLE

One of the sections in Unité is called ‘op visite’.  In this section, we visit a student and photograph where they live.  For this first edition, I visited Sarah from La fille de Joujouelle.  Her room is stuffed with great finds from flea markets or thrift shops and gifts from her family.  The result is amazing, anyone would love to live there!

Unité #1

So… Time has come to tell you about what has been consuming all my free time lately!

This year, I’m part of Existenz, which is a group of students from the first master of architecture in Leuven.  All year, we work towards our Existenz Maximum Week: we get our hands on an abandonned building in Leuven and completely transform it into architectural heaven.  During this week, we organise workshops and lectures – all of them more or less connected to architecture. (More information about Existenz (although only in Dutch) and the things we do, can be found at our website.)

2010-2011 is the 16th year of Existenz and this year, we’re taking it one step further.  We’ve created a magazine, called ‘Unité’, which will be found for free in all architecture schools in Flanders.    Yesterday the first issue came out, and all of us are so proud of what we’ve accomplished.

Therefor, I present you the on line version of Unité #1.

In the next few days, I will tell you more about the articles that I worked on, but in the meantime, tell me what you think of the overall look!
