On the Monday morning, 7th of August,
after having a breakfast together with my friend, Emil,
we started our journey to his home town – Murnau.
I am really grateful for having such an amazing and skilful partner and guide for my first hitch-hiking experience. Continue reading
Organised and informed by the SWOP* team, a group of around 25 students gathered to witness and participate at the Legal Graffiti Event in Hall of Fame, Augsburg.
Getting there was adventurous and hilarious. Lots of explaining so if you’re not that into the details of my life, skip to the next paragraph. 😀 Continue reading
Me and two of my friends on exchange here as well, from Odessa (Ukraine) Alyona Pencheva and Yuliia Bailiuk went on the night of Friday to see the spectacular firework right from the Augsburg’s annual Amusement Park Plärrer.
After being really indecisive about going to try out one of the attractions from the amusement park, Alyona joined me for a ride in the Apollo 13 while Yuliia filmed us! 😀
The first time I noticed the fireworks from my window view, the second time I got on the top floor of my dormitory and recorded it from distance and the third time I saw it right from the Plärrer!
In the evening of April’s last Saturday, over 100 students from Hochschule gathered at the Business, Design and Informatics Campus for an event created and organised by SWOP-team. The participation fee was 10 €.

Manual Printing Creative Lab
We started our class with viewing our final results of the CyanoType LAB.
Manual Printing Creative Lab
In the early morning I got introduced to an awesome huge vintage shop called “Contact” by Carolin, an amazing friend from the Manual Printing Creative Lab.
The purpose of the trip was to get some textile scraps and different pieces of fabrics to later experiment with.
The place is simply a treasure “cave” for an artist!
You can get anything you can imagine there: from tiny pendants to huge items of furniture.
Augsburg is world famous for its string puppet theatre.
The SWAP team from Hochschule Augsburg organised tickets at a great price: 9,70 €
The play was called ‘Tischlein deck dich‘ (The Wishing-table) of Grimms’ Fairy Tales. ~ 90 min
The play started at 4 in the afternoon but I got there later because of my Cyano – experiments on textiles at Manual Printing Creative Lab. Continue reading

During this class we got small notebooks where we had to make fast sketches from the images selected and projected by our tutor Jürgen Hefele. The time limit and method was setted by him as well. It was a great exercise. Even if at the begging I wasn’t very sure about what I am doing because of lack of various materials to draw with (I was using a thick black marker given by my tutor and a pen that I had with me).
… – left hand – technical – lines only – look 1 minute, draw from memory – as many details as you can – same image less details, in 3 minutes – same image in 1 minute – very quick sketch – draw with closed eyes – …
