Last year I had a course in my university called: Audiovisuals, in which on groups we did a series of different kinds of videos. My group was composed by: Clara Navazo Pintor, Naiara Martín Haro, Ana Poza del Hierro and me.
This video was the one that I liked the most, this is the main reason why I´m dedicating a whole entrance for it. It´s name is: APARIENCIA, that mens APPEARANCE.
I hope you like it as much as I do. And, of course, you are free of think and draw your own conclusions as you want. The good thing about this video is that it could have many different interpretations.

The thing is that this book although it has a lot of interesting things, it´s oriented to principaly highschool´s people in USA. And the label thing it´s not only a problem of the teenagers, it´s true that in the high school it´s when it becomes to start. Maybe this teen thing implicit in the book it´s because it´s been written by a sixteen years-old girl. By the by, a very smart girl.
So, looking through the internet I found this new book, that apart that it´s written by a sociologist women, for the moment, it seems to be more focus on people from different ages and countries. Somehow i´ll be informing you about what interesting things I´m reading in this new book. I hope it´ll interested you as much as it does to me.
(Also the cover it´s really nice, isn´t it?)
Curious fact of the day: The name of Brugges (that fantastic city of Belgium) in spanish it´s Brujas that literally means witches. The spanish name of this town in northem Belgium has its origins in the Spanish presence in Flanders, a few centuries ago. At that time, and yet is still made, was very fashionable to translate all the names so that their pronunciation was a little bit more affordable for the spanish. So when the soldiers of the spanish troops arrived in this lands and heard the name in Flemish /Dutch, which is Brugge decided that because it was "similar"(everything is subjective in this life) Brugge would become Brujas in the spanish maps.
So the spanish name has no association with any property of the city. By contrast, the name in Dutch/ Flemish does. Brugge derives from Bruggen, that means bridges, and this that could see everyone who has visited the city it´s something that surrounds you in the streets of Brugges.
Now, I feel a little unconfortable every time I pronounce the name of this city in spanish.

I must add to this post a videoclip of a song. What is really interesting for me of this video are the images, look through it and draw your own conclusions. In reference to the labels subject, don´t you think it´s amazing?
This video clearly shows the labels thing...What do you think are the factors (of the 5 factors) that are implicit in this video?
Also I like very much the way it is recorded.

At first, telling that I had never had concern about blogging and less in english. (so please sorry if my english it´s not correct, I must improve it)The thing it´s that I am a spanish erasmus student in Sweden, and this it´s my last and fifth year of degree: Fine Arts.
In this blog I would like to explain a lot of things of the project that I´m developing now, and another projects that I have done in the past, although they are not complete.
Of the project that I´m developing it´s good the thing that it´s starting now thus I can be explaining step by step during the year. Also I will be writing things that inspire me day by day, maybe not concerning my project, but also future projects.
Why I named "The Kooks"?Because they have colaborate as a inspiration to me as a little part of the whole idea behind the project that I have talked about. The reason?...You will discover it.
