I decided to write this story as it is a typical manifestation of “luck”, “coincidence” and “fate” moments in my life. That’s when I have this feeling that everything is going as it is supposed to go, when it feels that I am in the right place, at the right time.
On the early early morning of the last day of September I took the X90 bus from Marylebone, London to St Clements Street, Oxford. The student ticket with return cost 14 £ and the journey time is about 2h. Continue reading
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.

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).

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.

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
