‘there’s a window’

 

I call my entry ‘Six can be one…’

 

 

 

Marraskuun teemakuun kollaasi ‘On ikkuna…’ valmistui kerralla.

Työnimi on ‘kuusi voi olla yksi’

On ikkuna keltainen

tai kultainen niin kuusi voi olla yksi. 🙂

aesthetics of everyday life / arjen estetiikkaa

 

 

‘According to Richard Shusterman we can find everyday life aesthetics from

nature, human body, rituals, sports, fireworks, popular culture,

home decorations, tattoos, cave drawings, cosmetics and so on.

It is to be found from colorful views and inspiring happenings that enrich our lives.’

 

 

Here we go, day 1 and 2
