Nacinimod Deodee

Caribbean born designer, poet, artist and musician, Nacinimod Deodee, talks about his island roots, growing up in Dominica & defining his style from a young age.  He is also the designer behind House of Nassat, a crochet wear company.

It does my heart good to see a fellow islander doing his thing and being true to his own style.

What To Do With Your Prizes Money

Well if you’re German artist, Hans-Peter Feldmann you’ll wallpaper the Guggenheim Museum with it.  All $100,000 in 1 dollar bills of his prize money is now officially the world’s most expensive wallpaper. The Hugo Boss Prize, in partnership with the Guggenheim Museum promotes contemporary art. Hans-Peter Feldmann is the eighth and oldest winner of the prize.

Take money out of its context  and it suddenly has a different meaning.

It is just paper, isn’t it???

Plan Of Action

 

New year new possibilities, they always say. And this I’m hoping is true. Actually it’s more than a hope, it’s an action. There is a big difference between the two.

Thinking at Hell's gate By innoxiuss

For the past few years I’ve hoped, thought, mulled, stressed, worried, imagined, contemplated … and oh did I say worried. Yes, it just keeps on going. I’ve realised that this is a matter of cause and effect. As long as the planning is not followed up with some type of action you’re doomed to stay in a vicious cycle of thinking. Which makes me think of the popular statue The Thinker by Auguste Rodin, which depicts Dante deeply pondering his poem in front of Hell’s gate of all places. Talk about pressure. Although the bronze image is a symbol often times used in philosophy, I want to use this image to illustrate how over thinking can freeze you in time making you a statue or stagnant in whatever area you don’t progress in.
