in the making
A week ago in Göteborg.
Workshop at Rum för Papper, making book boxes with ten enthusiastic participants with various backgrounds; photographers, graphic designers, record label owner, textile artist, author, stylist and otherwise generally interested paper nerds :)
Shop dog Kellogs couldn't care less and didn't understand all the fuss about paper, cardboard and glue.
Yesterday I visited Magasin 3, to see an exhibition with chinese artist Ai Wei Wei. It was extremely interesting, gripping and touching. One of those artists that leave a huge mark in history.
One thing annoyed me though; the museum was swarming with show guards looking over ones shoulder to make sure nothing was touched or that you weren't standing too close. A paradox, since his art also criticizes surveillance...
