First official day of the International Festival of Art and Culture: Capsa 2017 was dedicated to getting some rest from the trip, however, some of us headed out to explore the city of Gafsa. Here are some of my visual notes from the walk.
Most of July 2017 I am based in our Latvian countryside house nearby Kadaga / Adazi.
This month is dedicated to regaining my own balance, reconnecting with my own past, clearing out old books and papers, exploring my family roots and mental traveling through time…
As a follow-up to the Time Perspective Network meeting in Potsdam, I’m collaborating with Marc Wittmann on a paper: Orientation to the present and future and its role in pro-environmental behaviour and sustainability.
I’m continuing to work on the #100daysofinnerart project, which I have decided to exhibit during the art festival in Tunisia later this August.
I’m coming back to the idea of creating something out of my father’s music collection of over 4000 tapes and various other objects from the Soviet times – Blast from the Past. Contact me if you have any ideas or museums that might be interested in this!
Working on the second leg of the Indvielsen project – stay tuned to see the new portraits!
End of July – beginning of August, I’m traveling with my mom to her home town – Chelyabinsk, Russia – to spend some time with my aunts and cousins and their kids.
I am available for giving workshops on how to deal with culture shock and using creativity as a resource. I would be thrilled to develop a tailored talk / workshop regarding time, creativity and your field of interest.
Best ways to keep up with my progress and stay in touch with me:

Finding Creative Flow course in June 2017 is taking place at Stavrianna organic farm, nearby Diakopto in Greece. When Stavrianna’s owners, Stavros and Anna, got married they we had a common dream to create their own paradise in a countryside, to cultivate own all natural vegetables, to pick all kinds of fruits directly from the trees, to grow domestic animals and to have beautiful flower gardens. Their dream became true in 1990 and now, that they are retired, they offer us to be part of their dream.
With this post I would like to give you a taste of our life here, at Stavrianna organic farm. Contact me if you would like to join us – there are still some opportunities!
The days starts with the sunrise. I go around on the bike to different places and observe the morning colors and collect them in my sketchbook.
