East Side Gallery, Berlin

If you’re ever in Berlin, be sure to visit the East Side Gallery! This is where the longest remain of the Berlin Wall stands after it was taken down in 1989. The East Side Gallery stretches over a mile long and features art painted on the wall in celebration of the end of the Cold War. A real must-see for street art and history lovers!

Rie Hosokai’s LEGO Wedding Dress

Rie Hosokai's LEGO Wedding Dress

Japanese artist Rie Hosokai of Daisy Balloon has created this Wedding Dress entirely out of LEGO blocks for Tokyo’s “Piece of Peace” world heritage exhibition. Amazing, huh?! However, I’m still rather unclear of how you’re supposed to get in and out of it…

Hosokai stated of the construction: “There is fear in that we are all different from one another, but that is also the gateway to self-consciousness. Self-consciousness was once whole, but in the modern trend where all things whole get broken down, it too is about to get deconstructed. For that reason, people now seek to reconstruct their consciousness by extending it onto others. Through this process of extension, we have learned to unravel things down to their basic elements.”

A Sunny Weekend Getaway

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to go down to the South Coast and visit Bournemouth – boy am I glad I did! Although rather busy, the beach had a lively and happy atmosphere with absolutely amazing weather! Seeing as most of us seem to forget that the sun can occasionally shine in England, if you are able to get down to the South Coast anytime soon then I thoroughly recommend you do before Mother Nature decides to go back to her normal, dreary self again!
