About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Evolve into "homines ludentes"!

ABOUT ME

We are in love. Two people living in the same city for many years, hangin out in the same places that never met, found each other after one was away. Now their plans have changed completely, to the best. The two travel together, as one. Not many things to say. Let the references replace this section. The one who talks, doesn't really know, the one who knows, doesn't really talk. Sometimes. ;)

PHILOSOPHY

"That which is above is from that which is below, and that which is below is from that which is above, working the miracles of one". Hermes the trismegistus

We came from a black womb, we'll end up in a black tomb. The small part in the middle is called life and it's inner form is binary. There's an eternal dialectic in everything. We never go somewhere, we just try to return to our own somewhere in a purposeless road that nothing can be re-obtained. The last and only thing we have to do is to play, to love and fool around. If you read any book of Vilem Flusser you will be able to see whom I consider as my mental father.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Trying to formulate the im-possible. One man's waste is another man's soap. Having spare space, information and time (well, i'm not sure for the last one!) means that i can give it to the people!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Our couchsurfing experience is www.couchsurfing.org/nasta. Nasta was my lovely roomate and we shared the same profile for three or four years so you can check her profile to see what is my cs experience! Seen everything. People biking, driving, walking, doing nothing, loving, exploring, touring, travelling and staying settled even if they are many kilometers away from their hometown. If you show respect you 're gonna get respect.

Interests

Finding greatness in small things. Extracting new out of old. Considering everything as one. Considering all the possible and impossible aspects of one. Fantastic realism. Information theory. Photography. Rap based poetry. 1914 style dadaism. 1924 style surrealism. 1957 style situationism. Throat singing. Sampling. Lo-fi music editing. Alchemy. Hermetism. Shamanism. Practically, I am doing a master on Information Philosophy and Cultural Dissemination, have a home recording studio where I make sound experiments with my voice, mouth harps and little intruments, I sample from old vinyls, field recordings with an eccentric taste and I go out photographing strangers and then spend two hours working on photoshop collages.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seen: Nasta fell in love with a girl two years ago and after a long period of love and fights, now that i leave for Tannu Tuva they rented an appartment together and they have the niciest time ever. Everything flows so harmonically sometimes.

Done: While i never had any really big interest in photo art, the last 2 years i'm surprisingly evolving in this thing, taking part in exhibitions, and even capturing female soccer matches, marriages, animals and role models not even asking for money. Photography tends to be my personal proof for the possibility of the impossible.

Maybe the two facts are somehow connected in a metaphysical post-whatever level. I was chasing around Nasta's girl in concerts to get sneaky pics of her with my old nikon coolpix two years ago.

I met Efi.

Teach, Learn, Share

Expect the unexpected, give form to the impossible. Love and play!

I can teach how to play the mouth harp and how to rap, photoshop, use nikon cameras, mix with fruity loops, trigger your philosophical instincts, and how to make creative use of a very short attention span!
