Dreams with Helin

What’s on your mind right now:
– ”The only thing that I know is that I know nothing”. This quote from Socrates is constantly on repeat in my head.

Who’s visual expression makes you feel overwhelmed?
– LSD world peace on instagram.

Where do you turn to online for inspiration?
– The world wide web is the limit!
I’m a heavy Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr user.

What do you dream about?
– I’m dreaming and longing for when I’m able to master each part in the creative process by myself. I get really frustrated when I can’t fulfill or complete my ideas by my own.

What piece of writing opened your eyes?
I think my sister Dimen is truly amazing when it comes to writing. Her choice of words and the dramaturgy is strong and powerful.
There’s been a time now where I have found it difficult to read, but her pieces is always easy to get caught up in. There’s a flow in her way of writing mixed with poetic words that’s always straight forward, she’s never hiding.
She doesn’t leave anything unsaid either it’s a script, a poem or a random text. She’s honest and true in what she’s doing and for that I admire her.

What’s your preferred space?
– The sauna.

What’s your relationship with time like?
I’m trying not to be controlled by time. Observing myself in relation to time I’ve notice that the past is just a vague memory, the present is hard to perceive and the future is my constant goal.
I understand that being in the future isn’t a sustainable path but where I am is not who I am. Learning how to accept time is also how I learn to accept my own process in life.

What makes you excited about work?
– I get really excited finding new inspiring people. That’s why I really like my work.

Who would you would love to work with?
– The ultimate dream would be to work with people that I’ve discovered myself or maybe working with creative people that doesn’t have a big influence yet, but soon to come.
Then there’s of course a lot of amazing creators out there that has already made a name of themselves that could be amazing to work with, but I haven’t really decided of who and why.
If I have to namedrop a few it’s pretty obvious that it would be Harley Weir and Oliver Hadlee Pearch when it comes to fashion photography and Jacquemus when it comes to fashion design, I absolutely LOVE him.

What’s the biggest risk of your life?
– To truly trust in myself and my intuition.

Dreams with Malin

What’s on your mind right now:
– Naked bodies, christmas songs and odd sunglasses.

Who’s visual expression makes you feel overwhelmed?
– Just now I’m in love with the work of the Posternak twins and of the image making duo Hart + Lëshkina.

Where do you turn to online for inspiration?
– Instagram and Pinterest. Practically endless and always accessable.

What do you dream about?
– To live a creative life. And to figure out whatever that actually means, for me.

What piece of writing opened your eyes?
– The second sex by Simone de Beauvoir.

What’s your relationship with time like?
– I do most often think I have more time than I actually do. But on the other hand I constantly need to remind myself that there is no rush to figure out what I want to do or what I want life to be like. Time will show.

What’s your preferred space?
– Anywhere among creative and eye opening people.

Do you feel a sense of belonging in your field as a creative? How?
– Not really. But I hope and believe that it will become clear for me in time. Or if doesn’t and I will just keep exploring different fields of my creative self. Sounds alright to me aswell when I think about it.

What makes you excited about work?
– Those moments when you get lost in the process, kind of forgets time and space and when you finish, you can feel how that state of mind got captured in your work.

Name a defining moment in your life.
– When I moved to Stockholm from a smaller village. It has given me so many possibilities, but most importantly, it has made me feel free.
