Multimedia Arts Festival 2014

Last Saturday, me & my BFF (Jaro, the other one) went to visit our SDA friends' exhibit at SMX Convention nearby Mall of Asia. I was actually caught loathing around twitter by my BFF & he phoned me to tag along with him to an art expo. Turns out that I knew about the event & I never knew that MultiMedia Arts Festival 2014 is having their last day during that time, so in a heartbeat - I went with him to pay Bjorn, Mav & Steffi a visit and show 'em my support. :D

The event was held inside Hall 001 of SMX & it was jam-packed with art installations & various exhibits presented by MMA students from DLSU-CSB. I never get to visit the last MMAFair as it was held in different places & it was a bit of a hassle. Fortunately for this year, all the exhibit were housed inside one venue!

First exhibit on the list was CONTINUUM where Bjorn Bedayo aka. Bjorn Manila's art installation can be seen alongside Carlo Alcala (and ofcourse more of the works of Team Continuum all over the area). CONTINUUM presented more on moving images & videos - WHICH I FANCY AT THE MOMENT. I love seeing still-like images and an alternative version of it displayed in motion. Most  videos are in endless loop (as referred to the name of their exhibit). I see that this kind of media will be the next level of photography. Remember "The Daily Prophet"? (ref. Harry Potter)

Next exhibit ont he line-up was RECESS. Their theme was la-la-la-love~ I'm diggin' the whole retro-pokedex vibe of their exhibit! They went all out with their Artists' Portfolio navigator, where you can freely play with a huge transparent touch-sensitive LED screen! Wow, just wow!

Another one of my favourite exhibitors is From The Ground Up & BALIKTAD. The two exhibit felt like they compliment each other XD but in terms of the illustrations, I think they kind of portray a whole different meaning to each other. BALIKTAD shows more on role-reversal. As for FTGU - I really don't get the whole gist of what they're trying to tell their audience. If someone would be kind enough to explain - feel free to comment! :)

And last but not the least of my personal favourite is Error 404 by as curated (& also lead by him) by Maverick Lacson. Ever since I saw bits of his work via Facebook - my creative juices overflowed! Haha! Never really seen something so distorted, warped & gnarled that I have appreciated ever since Pablo Picasso. For me, the whole exhibit was more of like Cubism in digital-age.

I highly appreciate artists who can create something so distracted into form of art. So two thumbs up to Error 404 for introducing us to your MASTERPIECE.

Other exhibits displayed were by Kalye Berde & The Vantage Point. TVP played around with angles perfectly! MERIDIEM & SURGE also did their best when it comes to contrast, and also used luminescent materials. :Db

Hello Kitty Around The World + Mimobots

2 days ago, I received a call from an XEND delivery guy that I have a package that I need to receive - unfortunately I was out watching this new movie I fancy so much called Divergent. The movie was hella great, I would love to tell you guys more about how I enjoyed its storyline & plot compared to Hunger Games but this post is all about this kyot littol ketteh I adore more than anything else - Hello Kitty!

I was so giddy that I already had a hunch that the package that have arrived is my Hello Kitty Around The World gift set & I was right - first thing that I did when I came home was jumped around carrying a penny plain brown box that contained all the goodies sent by Hello Kitty Philippines.

You guys may be wondering how I ended up getting one of these together with all these HK lovers all around the Philippines, eh? A friend of mine contacted me for my address telling me that Hello Kitty has something in store from me - I gave my shipping address in a heartbeat (every HK fan would do so!) & waited patiently for that surprise Sanrio has for me. They were also in perfect timing as it was my birthday gift & I don't really receive plenty o gifts for my birthdee~ SO YAY! <3 A lot of bloggers who loves Hello Kitty have received their own care box as well & also celebrities! :D

A birthday present for the little prince

Been out & about recently taking part in a lot of collaborations & mini-projects with other people to market myself & also to enhance my portfolio. I know 2014 is quite slow for me in terms of my photography - but nope, I'm not giving up! Not now that I have my own studio for personal use, I should at least be productive.

I was invited by Ronan Capili & his friend Jaws Bodestyne to document her youngin', Mio, 1st birthday celebration.

I felt at awe that they liked what I did on how I documented their family portraiture from our last shoot with Ronan. I was just literally going with the flow & feeling my blogger intuition that time. XD So I'm a bit surprised how they fancy how I executed the photo-ops I did. I'm thankful that they gave me another try as a photographer. I knew right then that I'm so going to like Mio's party favors & theme as I know that my client is very conceptual when it comes to design - so the moment I stepped inside Bonelli's restaurant (where the party was held), I couldn't stop from getting giddy inside as I'll be taking details inspired from my favourite book ever! THE ONLY BOOK I HAVE READ 5x FROM ITS FIRST PAGE TO THE VERY END - The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

So thrilled that it felt like I'm a year older once again - felt like it was my birthday party too! Haha! You guys know how ecstatic I get when it comes to the Little Prince *teary eyed* (NOTE: to my avid readers - no this is not about Zirjaye's blog named "The Little Prince" #chos!). I always see myself as a person who never grew up & see reality in a perspective of a child... 24/7, forever & ever like forever21~ <3

There were so many photos, as you can see. So I can only post my favourites from the bunch! People were also given some scrumptious patisserie to take home! I love their white-chocolate coated pretzels, btw, but I never get to take home one of those. I love how every detail in the party highlights the story of the little prince. I want to do more of these kind of birthday party - I just hope that it would be as cute & quirky as this one. XD
