Guest Post: stay crazy

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.
