What the hashtag #AddMotherfuckerToShakespeare produces sound like The Wire lines :
"Today, we will learn that “there are no shortcuts to beautiful form” (as Christopher Alexander would say). In design, “form is process.”
Every time we build things with our hands and with our minds, we are (at the same time) shaping our hands and our minds.”
Today I had lunch with one of my former teachers, probably the person that has taught me the most. We talked about the process. About the difference between using theatre as an end or as a mean. And also about how if we stay on the surface of things, we are left with a tool, say, a screwdriver, but we don’t know what we were given it, so we will bang stuff with it, or try to eat and it’s not going to work very well.
Also, and it is only seemingly unrelated, we met afterwards a fellow actress who went to school 2 years after me who will play Les Nègres by Jean Genet. Our teacher asked her why she is excited about this project and why she declined an other (both revolved around the question of race).
We talked about how it is much more interesting to work on something you don’t fully understand, because there is room for you to evolve with the work, and also the work leaves room for you to bring something of yourself, and how when everything is said and explicited, there is nothing left to do.
Our teacher said that a play was precisely this, something that couldn’t just be read but had to be made and shown on stage to be elucidated.
Great big announcement !
I’ll add more stuff throughout the next few days (especially in the “vêtement” section which is a bit empty for now).
You can find all the informations you need in both english and french (scroll down a bit for the english).
Have a lovely day,
It’s been a little less than a week since I launched the OuBroPo and I’m already working on a few orders. Let’s keep the orders coming in, and feel free to share ! :)
The word prototype comes from the Greek “prototypon” which means “original”, “primitive”, “a first impression.” It is a product’s early model or sample that we use for testing a concept or a process.
Start from the overall “function” and not with its form. As Mies would say here, “form follows function.”
Start with a story.
Ha ! Thank you for picking me :)
i’m not used to saying nice things about myself (who is though) so maybe i could have found more accurate things to say but. yeah.
I use a software called Giffun, but I think the best way to make gifs is with Photoshop really. Thank you, it’s a MOOC organised by iversity, the first time I did that and it’s really interesting :)
Today I have to plan my garden.
I am amazed by kokedama (or string gardens). I really want to try and make one, but I’m mostly known for my very poor maintenance of anything vegetal.
Also, to make one you need to have a grown plant and not seeds. So the purpose of watching the plants grow (if it grows at all) is a bit lost.
However, I haven’t finished planning it and shall come back to it later. But what strikes me since the beginning of this course, is that very often as I research references I stumble upon a concept, an image, something that catches my attention, and as I push forward and try to see where it comes from, more often than not, there is a japanese craft or concept behind.
Why is it that traditional japanese culture is so design oriented ?
It isn’t directly related to today’s assignment, but now I want to read about that, and understand where is stems from.
I have read a lot, and I still don’t know what to do. My other two ideas were : growing aromatic herbs or making a terrarium (I have a little glass bowl that has no purpose).

oromi said: lovely
karmice said: haha “the phrases in grey” grey is not a good colour, they look invisible. cool idea!
and everyone who liked, reblogged, sent me messages about the OuBroPo, thanks a lot !
I’m happy to have so many positive responses so far for this project, and I hope it’ll grow in the weeks to come.
"If you only give, there isn’t much value, because very soon your inner self dries out. If you only take, people around you see you as a monster and start avoiding you.
The point here is to find a balance. Being aware that in 99% of cases you take from one person and give to another (there is not an immediate reciprocity).
Good design is to take in as much as possible, and to give out as much as possible.”
= another important concept : “pay it forward”
