PRESENTED ON FEB 09, 2016

In Primitiva from PechaKucha Night Stockholm’s 55th Volume, speaker Katrín Ólína discusses her new project Primitiva. She embarked on a journey to find herself, but instead found something that belongs to everyone. By creating a language of shape, Katrín discovers a diversity of human conditions.

Unscripted Beauty

BY MURIEL BORDERS
@ VOL 17 ON OCT 21, 2017

Art and the concept of beauty are all very personal. What is beautiful to one - may be abhorrent to another. Muriel Borders’ presentation highlights some of the unscripted moments of her concept of beauty.  Many of these photographs are taken with a Sony Alpha 7, although some are taken with mobile phones as Muriel often finds herself in situations of fleeting beauty, without a camera, and has learned to make do with what I have at that moment so as not to lose the moment.
