Invisible cities



Ruby and I are in our last year of secondary school. Graduating year! And that means a dissertation.
We had to read a book (Invisible cities by Italo Calvino) and make there several art works out.
It started in January and stops begin May, with a scary evaluation at the end, judged by docents of art academies.

And why am I telling you this? Well we also have to keep up a website! Originally meant for the judge, so they can follow our process; but everybody can took a look.

Just click on Ruby or Siel. Although Ruby isn't started yet with hers (Shame on you Ru! :p)

once more: the website



If you're  still interested in the story, keep on reading :)

The book explores imagination and the imaginable through the descriptions of cities by an explorer, Marco Polo. The book is framed as a conversation between the aging and busy emperor Kublai Khan, who constantly has merchants coming to describe the state of his expanding and vast empire, and Polo. The majority of the book consists of brief prose poems describing 55 cities, apparently narrated by Polo. Short dialogues between the two characters are interspersed every five to ten cities and are used to discuss various ideas presented by the cities on a wide range of topics including linguistics and human nature. The book structured around an interlocking pattern of numbered sections, while the length of each section's title graphically outlines a continuously oscillating sine wave, or perhaps a city skyline. The interludes between Khan and Polo are no less poetically constructed than the cities, and form a framing device, a story within a story, that plays with the natural complexity of language and stories.
Marco Polo and Kublai Khan do not speak the same language. When Polo is explaining the various cities, he uses objects from the city to tell the story. The implication is that that each character understands the other through their own interpretation of what they are saying. They literally are not speaking the same language, which leaves many decisions for the individual reader.
The book, because of its approach to the imaginative potentialities of cities, has been used by architects and artists to visualize how cities can be, their secret folds, where the human imagination is not necessarily limited by the laws of physics or the limitations of modern urban theory. It offers an alternative approach to thinking about cities, how they are formed and how they function.

I think I'm flying





I've spotted some awesome Jeremy Scott wings at le blog de betty and le monde de tokyobanhbao.
It made me curious ad I searched for more.
Normally I'm not an Addidas fan or sneaker type at all, but these ones made me greedy. Me want!

Even my mother liked these ones!





Addidas, expect me soon in your shop!

-edit: the shop I had in mind appears to be a Puma store. Damned.-
