Greetings from an English 20-year-old studying architecture in Oxford. I adore The Smiths, tea, classic films and literature, autumn, wine, Irish things and Italy. When I'm not slogging away at coursework I'll be posting these things on here.
"To discover hidden beauty and meaning in small and trivial things is the fundamental element, not only for film, but also for all art genres. The problem is, beauty doesn’t exist per se. Like the light and shadow, whether it’s visible or not, beauty co-exists with pain, filth, and ugliness. Apricots need to fall down to earth to create a new life. Therefore, art is an irony as itself. As so are our lives."
These days I’m constantly torn between an ambition to become an incredible architect with a fantastic undergrad portfolio, and the feeling that actually I just want to sleep forever.
