23 | work work work.

I recently landed a new job, a position that is actually a first for me.  Great company, great benefits and a relaxed environment, what more could I ask for? Even with these positives, I am worried about getting the balance between a working schedule and creating time to spend on personal/creative endeavours. It’s only withinContinue reading “23 | work work work.”

BUT HE’S NOT RACIST

by Candice Nembhard I have been living in Berlin for around two months now and generally the transition from the UK to mainland Europe has been a relatively easy process. If we put rising rent prices, endless German bureaucracy, and the future of Brexit aside, Berlin in some ways is a safe haven for aContinue reading “BUT HE’S NOT RACIST”

Interview w/ Bookmarker Berlin.

I was introduced to Candice by Lavender at the Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz in Berlin-Weißensee when I asked her: What are you reading and how do you like it so far? I am reading ‘Things Fall Apart’ by Chinua Achebe. It’s really interesting. I just got into reading it, but so far there seems toContinue reading “Interview w/ Bookmarker Berlin.”

22 | neo-soul sundays.

Since moving to Berlin, I’ve seen more weather changes in one day than I care to count. From rain to snow, to bright and sunny mornings, the party capital certainly does have it all. Unfortunately, it is taking a little toll on my skin. (Not going to sit here and proclaim I have the bestContinue reading “22 | neo-soul sundays.”

LIVING WITH LESS

by Candice Nembhard I have always been fascinated by the dynamics of space; how we utilise it, what we decide to fill it with and what our own space says about us. If we think globally about ‘space’, its conception works in tandem with a few other fundamental principles of our existence; time, energy andContinue reading “LIVING WITH LESS”

21 | look for it.

My last post which took great inspiration from the late John Berger was the first stepping stone into looking at observational work. Be it the selfie, portraiture, or even truisms, there is something to be said how a view on a object can render it completely vulnerable. It can be done with a smile, aContinue reading “21 | look for it.”

20 | work and glow.

There are big things in store for January. Less than 30-odd days before everything is pulled from its roots and planted elsewhere. Frightened does little to cover the almost manic excitement that is bubbling away – yet my determination still has room to grow. Online spaces, my written work and social interactions have become aContinue reading “20 | work and glow.”

19 | looking.

A woman must continually watch herself. She is almost continually accompanied by her own image of herself. Whilst she is walking across a room or whilst she is weeping at the death of her father, she can scarcely avoid envisaging herself walking or weeping. From earliest childhood she has been taught and persuaded to surveyContinue reading “19 | looking.”

2 | afrodeutsche.

As the grandchild of immigrants born and raised in a large multicultural city, a great importance was placed on me knowing, understanding and respecting my ethnic history. Caribbean culture has been an important influence in shaping my values and of course more cultural avenues such as food, music, and community. The societal influence of theContinue reading “2 | afrodeutsche.”
