Time Out Sunday


PsychoBarn by Cornelia Parker (Met Museum, New York, USA, October 2016)
Well hello there The Escapist Season! Because what else would you call this cold dark thing?! A bit over a week ago I landed from sunny +22C New York into freezing snow covered Tallinn. While this happens every year (snow round here, not me in NYC) then getting snow that sticks around for weeks this early is not that common. And as you might have noticed... I do have issues with weather... (or maybe I am just not that good at talking about astrophysics and other highly fabulously sounding stuff)

The authentic sofa not curated for a photo shoot
So - what's a girl to do? (ah, yes, see the music video at the bottom) Build the escapist reality! (say what) First, I started with my living room wall. Need.more.stuff.on.the.wall. Sparkly, colorful, inspiring - anything goes. It's a good thing that washi tape is in fashion. Though I must sheepishly admit that the one I used has peeled off by now and I need to reconsider my options.

Posters, prints, postcards, magazine pages, photos, sparkly things... work in progress
Secondly, it's time for Black Nights Film Festival! One of my favourite things in Tallinn, a good reason to hide in the dark and minimise socialising (apart from being like: oh, I am so busy, I am at the festival). Oh and Taika Waititi is back with 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' - much needed dose of awesomeness tucked into last week that... (what a week!)

Everything will be OK!
So, what's a girl to do, but one (dark) day at a time. One dark night a time. Wrapped in glitter, cinema vibes and rebellious thoughts. And a cup of coffee (make it two).
