The former factory buildings of the museum gives you a perfect picture of the textile production of the previous century. But even more interesting might be another important part of the museum called the 'TextileLab' which allows students, artists and designers to execute their designs on the machines. The idea to do so has gone through my head ever since.
I spent a lot of time in the British Museum whilst studying for my Degree. My work has changed considerably since then but it is still a place I return to again and again. Inspiration doesn't always come from objects in the collection but also from the space and its visitors.
The biggest and most famous flea-market in Kiev. I love this place. In the market you can find any unexpected things like player on plates, antiques, dishes, trash-toys, old cameras, brands with profile of Hitler, Soviet cards, wheel of car, pirate porn video and many, many others.
It might not look like it, but Ponta Verde beach is placed right in front of a avenue with intense traffic all day. But it doesnt really matter as long as you can stay watching the sea - and wonder why you're in a car when you're supposed to be as much wet and tanned as this place allow you to.
Tramline 3B will take you almost anywhere in downtown Helsinki. If you want to get an overall picture of the city centre and its surroundings taking a tour on this tramline is a good way to do so. 3B is the only tramline that operates late at night so if you’re visiting Helsinki there’s a great chance that you’ll end up using it.
A quite special museum and soulfood in the 9th arrondissement packed with Moreau's work, who established and decorated it himself, so that his works could be gathered and displayed the way he wanted. He lived and worked there all his life long, and was ready in 1896… Two years later he died at the age of 72.

Lena Müller is an artist living and working near Nuremberg, where she studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts between 2005 and 2010. The majority of her work reflects her fascination for nature and natural sciences, especially her interest in the field of microcosm and macrocosm:
„What I am doing is a kind of a philosophical circling around questions of time, space, origin, human existence, cosmos, composition and mystery.
Regarding the form, it is the experimental play with a reduced stylistic idiom, made with
different tools, materials and techniques, what is exciting for me. Finally I like to create abstracted worlds which give the viewer, and also myself during the artistic process, the freedom to develop our own thoughts and imaginations and to discover the new.“

Matthew Brandt (b. 1982, Los Angeles) received his BFA from Cooper Union in 2004 and MFA from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2008. Interested in physicality, process and landscape, Brandt’s ability to stretch the readings of an image, multiplying them both physically and conceptually, speaks directly to his interest in how images loom and meanings shift within a shared visual history.
His work is the clever manifestation of a photographic alchemist, satisfying the urge for the tangible, and grounding us in the present. Brandt’s precocious talent has landed him in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Armand Hammer Museum (Los Angeles) and the Elton John Collection. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
