Marcin (Un an plus tard)
December 6, 2010
if you want to see Marcin one year earlier, click on the picture.
if you want to sneak a peak into Marcin’s life,
Shiny shoes : I bought them to wear when I was working at the reception of a hotel but now I like them so much that I only wear them at special occasions.
Keychain NY souvenir : I bought it in NY two years ago and has kept it since then. I worked in a summer camp for disabled children. I remember spending all my money I made in one weekend in NY (as an excuse: the dollar was very low).
« One hundred years of Solitude », Gabriel Garcia Marquez : my favorite book. It took me four times for finally finishing it. In most versions there is a genealogical tree at the beginning of the book but unfortunately not in mine.
The God Delusion book: a great book – Biologist supporting the whole theory of the evolution, Darwin – I bought it second hand and as I was reading it in Greece on my vacation, I had to get each time my pages back from the pool. It didn’t change my life but It made me just accept my condition of atheist.
The postcard: I was in basic year and I got stuck in a project. On way to school, I found a beautiful destroyed sawing Machine table which really helped me complete my project. I even dragged it in the tram. I found this postcard in the middle of the machine. There was also a question about eternity and a phone number written on it. I tried to call but it seems to be an old number.
Iron box: I am throwing small things I want to keep (notes and stuff) in it.
The Meter: even though I study architecture, I am really bad with measures and I am unable to see immediately if something is 2m or 3m for example.
Small photo: I was in America in an amusement park. This picture always makes me smile when I look at it. I have a weird face on it.
Postcard of the exhibition of Jeff Koens:
I bought it in the Nieuwenkerk (Amsterdam) and a guy I was dating at the time told me he had bought the exact same card 10 years ago. So I thought “That must be it!”
Laminated quote: I was heartbroken for a long time after a break-up. One day, I took a bus to the place of my ex and stood in front of his apartment for 3 hours. It was raining, it was just awful. At one point, he got out of his house, passed me and didn’t even recognize me. I took the bus home with a depressed face and suddenly a Muslim girl (maybe a Muslim angel) came to me and gave me this little note. I thought she assumed that it had fallen from my Pocket so I told her it wasn’t mine but she said « it’s for you… it will help you » and then she left. On the note it is written : « use your best fantasy to pursue your goal ».
Small yellow note: a paper with names of artists written on it that teachers gave to me. I still have this note in my pocket but I haven’t checked the names yet.
Statue : greece souvenir which is not too tacky.
Ladurée Box : I love the colors of macaron and I wanted to keep this box that I will certainly use for a project.
