I walk a lot; the best way to experience a city. So it's sometimes to do with the way places join up. This cast concrete letterform is a part of the Lycée's gateway. Each of the form's facets arrives at a different character, so six possible letters come from each cast object. I've never been inside the Lycée but always walked through this way up to the V&A, in order to examine again and again how each form works. The surfaces set the tone for the V&A and its incredible Ceramics floor, a perennial inspiration.
Is a couple of minutes walk from my apartment. It’s a little waterfall that is part of the Lysaker River, which defines the south western border of Oslo. I think it’s just as beautiful in the summer as winter. I love the fact that there are so many places in Oslo where you really feel close to nature. This place makes me feel good.
I have a picnic with friends at every early summer. Our university has a good garden. There is a good spot for picnic. The class of my university start at night. We eat, drink, sing, dance, and finally go for a class.
Established by Melbourne-born restaurateur, Michelle Garnaut, Capital M is one of my favourites, especially for afternoon tea. During pollution-free springs (when we have them) and summer (when the heat is not too suffocating), the view of Qianmen from the terrace is breathtaking, whilst cooler months see the use of the indoor fireplaces, which create a cosy, intimate environment. They also hold some great events here and the decor is trippy.

Ana (*1993), situated between an idealist wanting to change the world by great concepts and a pessimist firmly believing in our imminent death, currently works on the creative advertising industry. Lately, Ana is haunted by anguish which lusts in (an artistic) practice of inertia, fear, and parabolas of listing meandering thoughts and free associations. Finding herself researching on the topics of productivity and emotional labor, she boils down writings for the sake of it, further elevating her scribbles with design mastery. During the day, particularly from 9 to 5, or later, Ana is a productive producer, always eager for the next task mask. Her works have been exhibited in the privacy of her home and thoughts, some museums such as Het Nieuwe Instituut and EKKM and monthly paychecks. Ana has been ⅓ of we need to talk — an experimental editorial approach to talking as a way of curating. Ana still likes to talk on the phone.

I was Born in the sunny lands of Tenerife, holiday destination of millions of people, I grew up there and moved to Madrid when I was 18. Studied Environmental Sciences and discovered my vocation in photography at the same time, and nowadays combine both.
A sustainable living is my goal and I'll do my best for photography to be my way to get it.
Tenerife is a great place to visit, though at the same time because of the tourism the island has been distroyed and overcrowded in many areas. But luckily there are still many great places to enjoy the original nature.
Roland Maas is currently working as an artist in Tilburg, in the South of the Netherlands. In his autonomous work Maas does not limit himself to a particular technique or discipline. While creating, the process of making is all that matters and directs the final shape of the art work which can be different from its initial concept.
This fits in his current ceramic works, which he combines with technical materials and garbage. Maas is also a photographer, illustrator and creator of the world's first toon-model 'Babelle'
