It is true that I have been away from my home country for a quite long time now, but I have never felt less Romanian just because physically I am not there all the time. I still identify myself as Romanian no matter where I go, as well as I continue to enjoy and appreciate good local music as before I moved to Spain. Today I propose an inspiring playlist that has helped me throughout the development of several photographic projects. In fact, this playlist complements the reality evoked by the “Lesson in Mechanics” project, but it is also the basis from which a new, much larger project has recently been started.
The spiral motif entered my life a few years ago, by the time I was still in high school. I don’t remember exactly how it happened, but suddenly I started drawing almost nothing but spirals or curvy lines as if it had become a kind of automatism. Whenever I was facing a kind of surface, be it paper, a corner of a table or even clothes, I seemed to be automatically drawing spiral motifs and abstract curvy shapes.
It’s true that I’ve been away from my home country for a quite long time now, but I have never felt less Romanian just because physically I’m not there. I still identify myself as Romanian no matter where I go, as well as I still experience the excitement of the national holidays with the same emotion and pride as before I moved to Spain. Today we celebrate Romania’s National Day and that’s why I decided to share with you a bit of musical culture specific to my country.
În mod normal să știi ceea ce îți dorești este de apreciat, dar nimeni nu se gândește ce se întâmplă atunci când ceea ce îți dorești nu se îndeplinește. Poate că uneori e mai bine să nu știi ce vrei, astfel nu vei avea așteptări și nu vei atârna de un șir lung de dezamăgiri. Dar din păcate nu cred aceasta este cea mai indicată metodă de a gândi. Viața e imprevizibilă și te ia prin surprindere și nu toate surprizele sunt plăcute.
