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
Pinakothek der Moderne
München (Munich), Bavaria
Contemporary Art & Design group from Hochschule Augsburg, with our tutor Angela Opel organised a trip to München to see Pinakotek der Moderne – the biggest museum of modern Art in Germany.
After buying the Bayern Tickets,
the University would reimburse the cost of travel.
Since we were 11 travellers, we split up in 3 groups.
I was in a group 5 and there were another 2 groups of 3.

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 – …

Magic of Light and Sound
On 18th of March there was organised Hochschule Semester Opening Party. I felt more comfortable sitting at home and was sure that I won’t go out that night.
That was until, by pure coincidence I wrote to my friend from Manual Printing Creative Lab, Anna, asking about our homework.
The temptation to change my plans and actually go out that night was growing, as she was convincing me to join her and her best friend to a Gothic Party. Continue reading

at Hochschule Augsburg
Wednesday, 15th of March was our first day of University studies.
The schedule for the International Design Students was two Creative Labs of our choice.
Most of my classmates went to the one that was recommended for us: “Illustration Boot Camp”.
I, instead, have chosen to go to Manual Printing since it involved learning and practising new techniques. The time-plan showed that it was supposed to be in the morning, starting at 9:50, but the classroom was occupied by another workshop. While I was running around searching for the tutor, I ran several times into a professor of Visual Communication. He was very helpful and suggested to join his Creative Lab. 🙂 Continue reading
First meeting – Faculty of Design
We got introduced to the choices we have to pick for our projects, creative labs and other classes.
There was a person that got my attention specifically. I have no explanation for the reason it happened, just his presence made me tremble and I found a strong motivation to guarantee my attendance at the University 😀 .
Because I didn’t actually introduce myself nor asked that person for his name – the situation got even more mysterious and intriguing.
Party on the 19th floor
On 12th of March we had an Welcome party for all International Students.
It was a pre-drinking event on the top floor of Lechbrücke – the student accommodation where I am living at the moment. The purpose is to have fun, get to know more people and later go out together and dance at a local night club – Ostwerk. Continue reading
