Hi my name is Christina. I like pretty things and learning about the world. I belong to unusual fandoms and make gifs when I'm bored. I tend to ignore big problems and overreact to small ones. I love good conversations with people but I hate making eye contact with them. I feel most comfortable on the water and happiest when I'm singing.
Dongwook Lee is a South Korean photographer living in Seoul. His body of work which could be described as ethereal, expressive and reflective, invites the observer to contemplate the nature of human existence, curiosity, physicality and morality. Lee who approaches his photography with the idea that ”to see” means using all of one’s senses and memories, means that his photos may very well have different meanings for every viewer, dependent upon past experiences, the subconscious and the limits of perception.
One such collection by Dongwook Lee titled ”Sense of Guilt” (also known as ”Fake Tale”) presents a real world, albeit inhabited by Barbie dolls. Although the settings are familiar and commonplace, the reality is distorted precisely because the dolls are both so human-like and inanimate. Through the carefully executed scenes that he creates, they are almost like fleeting moments where the onlooker acts as a voyeur and spectator. (by Gerard McGuickin)
Naomi Elishuv had played for a number of orchestras, including Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, but was forced to stop performing professionally two decades ago when she began suffering from a condition called essential tremor. During the procedure which was performed under local anaesthetic, surgeons asked Elishuv to play so her brain was active. The footage shows Elishuv shaking and struggling to play the violin before she is wheeled into surgery. Surgeons are then seen operating on her brain behind a huge plastic curtain. As soon as the procedure is complete, the violinist’s hands become steady, and she is able to play unhindered for the first time in 20 years.
