I think I am friends with this girl ‘Barbie’ is just because she’s a bit crazy. Look at her blog, it is more than clear that the chick is missing one screw. But enough about her, let’s talk about me. Karolis, 20yrs old, business student. I’ll say you this, I made one big mistake by choosing my field of study, because it is booooooooring as fuck. No worries, though. I have few passions that keep me positive and motivated and that is sports and photography either singled out or a combination of them.
This is actually one of my favorite photographs I took. And here’s some more:
(You should check out my portfolio here, for better quality and quantity pictures.)
I came today with a purpose. And that is to encourage everyone to follow their passion. In order to make others happy, first you have to become one yourself and that’s why it is crucial that you chase after your desires and stay truthful to who you are.
Why me? Why here?
Because as I told you, the girl is crazy, so is what I do and our message for you is to be crazy,follow your dreams and stay happy. People who tell you, that you can’t accomplish your goals are those who haven’t succeeded theirs’.
THE WEIRD GIRLS PROJECT
The Weird Girls Project is a continuous art experiment created by conceptual artist Kitty Von-Sometime. It is being developed episode by episode and its participants are a mix of those who started from the very beginning and those who joined later. The concept of every episode is carefully polished for around three months before its metamorphosis into video and photo formats. The participants know about the episode just enough – the date, but the idea, location and costumes are kept secret. Every girl knows she will be photographed and filmed, but everything else is taken care of by Kitty Von-Sometime and her colleagues behind the stage in secret.
I have to emphasise that the participants are only female and the project (no need to be Einstein) is named after them. The result of the project is of visual nature, but the centrepiece is the event itself and the reaction of the girls to the costumes, their improvisation and the force that becomes apparent when they collaborate. The women are of different ages, educational background and experience and do not necessarily know each other before the day of the performance.
The bombastic praise towards the sole gender might hint you that I am suggesting some feminist movement that is about to go burn their bras, but it is far from that. The grout that is united by owning a vagina is talking only about themselves and their problems. The women in the project are not studying theatre and are not professional (implied by the popculture) supermodels. The goal of the project is to encourage nonconformist women whose bodies do not follow social norms to get rid of any negative emotions caused by the existing stereotypes.
During more than 4 years of its existence the project gave birth to more than 20 episodes of various forms. It was started with a very naive note stating lack of experience, but has matured throughout its course. Kitty creates the concept of every event, but always involves various photographers, costume designers and filmmakers to make the project lively and meaningfully collaborative.
