WERK | bdsm

i know everything about the sexshop offer in Denmark, the Czech Rep and Germany.
all because of my school.


wtf, right?
we had a project in collaboration with Bitchslap Magazine; and we were supposed to profile a chosen subculture, both in a written piece and visually.
me and G went for BDSM - and it was a hell of a struggle.
first, we got ridiculed at a local S&M sexshop by a supermean, slightly nationalist owner, then our cute pink bondage set ordered from ebay didn't arrive (and as i'm writing this post, it still hasn't), then there was no photo equipment to borrow at school (god bless my own camera), then the printers at the nearest printing studio got broken down, then we couldn't hang our pictures the way we wanted and we still didn't have our exhibition ready 5 mins before it was supposed to open,...
(it was also a lot of fun - writing stuff with ketchup, tying our classmates with pink bondage rope, getting handcuffed with my friend, having impromptu wax dripping performance etc.)
we managed to pull it off though, and the results, i have to say (however super-big-headed it sounds), were really great.
can't really show you the final works atm, but will do as soon as i can. here's some behind the scenes shot at least.


this was my favourite project i have ever worked on.


CONSUME | no furniture bill challenge II

as i have settled down a bit more at my new dorm room / flat, i thought i'd update you on how my not-gonna-buy-any-furniture low-cost challenges has been going.

this how my room looks like atm.
read more below.

i found the cute baby pink side table within a few minutes after moving in; and i sort of expected the rest of the process likewise easy.
of course it wasn't.
sure, i could have borrowed all the stuff from the furniture bank at my dorm, or i could have just bought the cheapest pieces at IKEA, but i wanted to keep on doing this experiment. so, i spent two weeks sitting on that pink table instead of a chair when trying to work, which lead to a lot of back pain. for three weeks, the first thing i saw after waking up would be ugly, dusty curtains with a ridiculous pattern reminding walnut shells.
luckily, when my parents were visiting, we found a nice desk (i used to have the same one but bigger when i lived in Herning) and a chair at the same spot where i found the pink table, ie the huge contained in front of my dorm.
i tried to hunt down some nice curtains, visited so many second hands, but nothing was nice. i pretty much gave up, because i just couldn't stand looking at the walnut-covered ones anymore, and ended up going to Jysk. none of the curtains sold there looked reasonable (= very simple, white, inexpensive), so i bought the cheapest white bed cover and hung it with 4 office rings i always carry in my purse for school projects. it is extremely ridiculous, but i sort of like it. very lo-fi.

expenses so far (in DKK):
2x 399 - mattress (the cheapest one available)
49 - towel
19 - shower curtain
24 - pillow
29 - LED light bulb doublepack
2x 19 - bedsheets
2x 24 - blankets for guests
19 - candle

100 - blanket
30 - bed cover used as a curtain

10 - plant (died already)
15 - fresh coriander (also died)

stuff i found (zero costs):
a desk, a chair, a cabinet with mirror (didn't know how to use it so i put it back to the container), a wooden crate

stuff i upcycled (zero costs):
pencil holders from a metal can and a tomato sauce glass, a flower vase from a glass jar from beetroot, fruit 'bowl' (requires a lot of imagination to see it as a bowl) from an ice cream container.

+ i used a lot of decorations i had brought from the CZ with me.

stuff i'm still searching for:
a bookcase / chest of drawers / whatever to put my stuff on, a board on which i could put photos / drawings etc on, another chair(s)

let's see how it goes!

the event sequence of a lot of drama during a school project, moving, my parents coming to visit and an individual assignment was a killer combo.
i have reached unknown levels of exhaustion.

my hands are shaking.
i have broken a light bulb and cracked my basin when i was washing the dishes.

things are happening but i feel like it's just a dream.
i am not present.
seconds, minutes, days, weeks, month are just slipping through my fingers.

i don't even go out that much anymore, fewer parties, fewer concerts, fewer exhibitions.
i'm skipping so many events.
i haven't been to Bakken for such a long time. i used to be there at least once a week.
i was at Mayhem 4x in the past 7 days though.

i have such great plans for this upcoming school project.
i have never been so afraid of failure.

i'm trying to pull myself together.
self-care, it's called.

was ist offen?
die wunde und das herz.
