Stranger Than Kindness

Stranger Than Kindness, originally uploaded by Design.Her.

Lately I have felt short on words, and as though I have fallen away from my blog a bit. I have every intention of posting, but sometimes the time and expression fails me. However, I woke up this morning earlier than expected, and decided to tackle an idea for a self portrait. Once I had finished running back and forth from one side of the camera to the other, I had fun scaring the dog with my face painted.

Next week marks the return to something that I had once left behind, which I am really excited about. On top of that, I have to study a bit more for the GRE, and work on my portfolio. I have given some thought on trying out more portraits, not necessarily self. However, there are dozens of other things on my to-do list that are much more demanding of my attention.

For those of you that have taken a moment out of your day to read my blurb, maybe you can spare a few more moments to take a look at the inspiration for the photo above.  Video by Fever Ray, the solo project of Karin Dreijer Andersson.  Karin and her brother Olof make the electronic group The Knife, both of which are uniquely innovative.

  1. interesting. the self-portrait is really cool, though the video is a little strange, border-line scary. ^_^
