I adore capturing and recording the beautiful world around me; travelling to find the extraordinary. I like to talk and write about the peculiar and mysterious experiences that I have encountered in my life. My project is called FACE because we have all faced these challenges or incidents. I started to document these thoughts, feelings and experiences 12 years ago. I have always enjoyed listening to knowledgeable people and I have used these small snippets of others and my own life experiences within my work.
My specialist subjects are Media and Photography, but that doesn’t mean that I couldn’t do anything else with the same passion. The message throughout my chosen path and my project has been to demonstrate that we can do everything with a great enthusiasm without comparison or prejudice. All ‘blacks & whites’ are just in our subconscious.
I’ve been inspired mainly by Isha Sadhguru’s writing: ‘The most important thing in our life is the Life Itself! The only moment which you can live in this life is the present one, otherwise you just exist’ (Sadhguru, 2016). I have always been seeking for something more, beyond the ordinary of the world around me. Sadhguru had an exceptional ability to motivate people in a simple way, on how to become more blissful and ultimately free from this temporary vessel that we call ‘My Body’.
In my personal video essay I deliver a message related to my current experiences, sharing my thoughts that have been troubling me until now. I have used Adobe Premiere Pro as a main tool to build my essay, and it represents a combination of video-recordings, photographs and music. I have begun to understand that all the positives and negatives of my life are just life lessons, which make me wiser and improve my own perceptions.
