About Olga
Olga Noronha, a 21 years old, London based portuguese jewellery designer, has been relentlessly examining the relationship between bodies, attitudes and surroundings, both in the wearer’s and the audience’s points of view. Olga’s creations are never mere ornaments, but are art pieces that celebrate the marriage of sturdy mechanics and delicate anatomies. Constantly challenging and exploring the relationship of interactivity, Olga illustrates the connection between ‘to see’ and ‘to be seen’. Wishing people not to be apathetic towards her work, whatever the reaction – good or bad, Olga welcomes doubts for they may lead to surprise.

It takes me no more than 10 minutes to get there and if my days go “on schedule”, I always finish them sat by the sea for at least 5 minutes. It is compulsory!

I discovered this warehouse / shop few months ago, but I was very annoyed at myself for the fact that I so often passed by and never noticed it. It is an endless world of leathers and accessories and tools for its work, along with a magnificent Art Nouveau façade that invites everyone to come and enjoy the amiability of the owners.

A 17th century former Augustinian monastery is laid on the highest point of Vila Nova de Gaia. From the front of the church there are wonderful views over the river and of both Porto and Gaia. It is the place where I go when I want to feel that "I see everything and nobody sees me."

My name is Catarina. I like plants, but I do not know much about any of them. Currently working on a self initiated project to discover some more about those wonderful beings. I love vegetables and eggs are my favourite food of all the time. I always drink orange juice in the morning. Ice cream is amazing, and I ́ve recently discovered avocato. I ́m entering a whole new level on food experience. I made myself a club (“ColorClub”), and I ́m a dedicated member, almost as the peopleof Scientology. In other subjects, I love my work. I’m interested in graphic design, visual culture, education and values, as well as analog photography. My self-iniciated projects always appeal to some kind of social issue that bothers me. When I feel the need to share and complain about something, I usually do so by travelling to a new country, making a serie of photographs and then creating a whole project around it. Some examples of those are “There are people who have a group, and there are others who do not.” and “Complete Love”. I forgot to mention that I am completely crazy about traveling. Thank you for getting to know me a little.
