A couple of summers ago, coming home from class, I took the subway with a friend and I told her I was trying to start a blog... then I also told her how time consuming and addicting it had become, and that I was wondering if it was something worth doing... she laughed and asked me to let her know when I was done and give her the"link" so she could read it. Then she left and I kept thinking...why? why should I do this ?

Technology has taken us to a new level and we are now, able to "publish ourselves"! PUBLISH OURSELVES however we want to; if you want to be yourself, transparent and out in the open, or even if you want to pretend to be someone else... YOU CAN! Now you can blog and share your thoughts and experiences with people without having them "altered" by the editors, or "chosen" because of how cool or marketable they are...

This space is for us to share; zaidibirindilindilandia-my own little world, my ingenious- and your thoughts!

welcome, and thank you!

direction --> biomes

Last year when in FLORENCE, I got into the habit of just collecting magazine tears of anything that seemed interesting and started accumullating information- that to be honest- I didnt know i had....
Anyhow, ARRIVE IN MILAN-NEW PROJECTS ARE ASSIGNED AND IN SEARCH OF INSPIRATION i was... so I began to rumage through my personal "library" and found an architecture report with images of the EDENPROJECT in cornwall, england along with other simmilar structures.

i kept my eyes open for other directions, but instead i grew curious about what was behind these... and i IMMERSED MYSELF andbegan to study/research/google/skim...

AMAZINGNESS. sheer amazingness...

apart from collecting hundreds of other directional images and ending up in a somewhat unexpected mixmatch...
HERE IS SOME... brainstorm/infogathering/ideawork:

  • science and art combine to result in functional beauty.celebrate the manmade, not as a competitor to nature but as its progression
  • When most designers were running back to their archives to recreate past hits, Alexander McQueen defiantly sent out a collection which could be called anything but safe. Never one to compromise his bold, lavish and rebellious vision, his collections epitomise fashion as we all love it. With vivid colour, uncompromising shapes and inventive catwalk shows, his often risqué collections are a celebration of contrasting elements: romance and horror, fragility and strength, and craftsmanship and technology. EMBRACE the attitude of boldness, the undeniable urge to push fashion into a new realm.

  • simpleapproach: experiment, improvise, innovate. Fashion is taught not as a solitary field but as a melting pot of diverse artistic and philosophical subjects.

  • to study/sounds interesting: Ecoshack is an experimental design lab that started its days in Joshua Tree, California. With the design studio’s main base now in LA, founder Stephanie Smith believes the Ecoshack concept is “inspired by the ad hoc, indigenous and archetypal typologies typically found at the fringes of society”.

Smith explores new ideas of culture and launched the Wanna Start a Commune? initiative, with the ethos: “Let’s take an old idea and give it a new attitude. Becoming more collective is the goal.”

Communes, or communities that share resources, are a business model worth adapting, as traditional notions of ownership disintegrate, and the ideas of sharing and collaborating are embraced.
