This is me ! Vivian from the lovely blog le petit bird told me posted a moodboard of me reflecting my little universe. Do you recognize me?  I love moodboards and her original project « who are you » is so inspiring. Please have a look at her blog and maybe you are the next.

{ ephemera }

By Brit

Becky Adams uses stitched paper, vintage fabric, sketchbook and antique ephemera to create intricate paper and book works. She considers her work as a recollection of past experience. She uses all recycled fabrics, including old thread. Many of the materials are from her grandparents’ old house which is part of her instinct to preserve the past.

{ naturalia & mirabilia }

By Brit

A little bit of botanical beauties, a bit of voodoo, a smidge of anatomic and a pinch of superstition… the universe of Lyndie Dourthe is a fantastic cabinet of tiny curiosities. The artist creates beautiful floral pieces and other curiosities with delicate paper and fabrics. She draws her inspiration from nature including the complex forms of insects, natural colours; the art of origami and various traditional papercrafts. Captivating !

{ collection of everything }

By Brit

Peter Blake, the grandfather of the British Pop movement, is an inveterate collector of everything from pop culture to found objects and seaside detritus. His sculptural compositions and collages show the energy and lightness of touch he brings to his work.

{ whispering walls }

By Brit

I have always been fascinated by abandoned and isolated buildings and their hidden stories and secrets; locations like castle ruins or abandoned mansions, closed factories and ghost towns, simply curious places that move you in another era, another world where the walls are whispering of yesteryear. It’s so fascinating to imagine the forgotten past and to explore past lives through the things they left behind, thinking about how these places used to look and who lived there. It’s captivating to see a part of something and try to figure out what it was. Decay can be so beautiful, it’s an eternal loveliness.

{ cabinet of curiosities }

By Brit

As long as I can remember, I am fascinated by cabinets of curiosities. Yesterday I created my own little wunderkammer, a personal collection of natural specimens with a sense of wonder. It’s a kind of personal approach of anything that is strange and interesting, provoking a sense of curiosity and inspiring me in many different ways.
