To those of you who didn’t know, yesterday was my birthday. I was born on 27th July 1996 (still a young bitch) and have been ever since awkwardly walking the earth’s surface. So lately things have been weird for me – definitely better than last year, which I might or might not be planning to make a video about – but still weird and troubling. Ups and downs are something that hits everyone but, damn it, I feel like I’m constantly on a roller coaster with Jim Carrey riding along.
Stories of Violet is the name of a project I just recently participated in. I’ve known Nefeli from my classes and, having seen part of her job, she had given me the sense of a pure artist. So, when she suggested that we collaborated I couldn’t deny. She’s got this romantic approach and loves the urban scenery – she’s really into captivating the light in all its forms, breaking through the dark. I easily recall her saying I should turn my “face towards the light”, at almost every shot we took.
