The End Of Romance: views, thoughts, images

I am a Chilean/Australian performance maker based in Melbourne.

Music, film, performance, fashion, literature, art, love, life, sex, men, pop culture, politics are a few of my favourite things.

This is a personal blog and views expressed are the making of the life i live in Australia, my longing for Chile, travel and perusal of the world wide web.

Fruits & Vegetables By Heidi Voet, 2010

Images of naked ladies taken from Chinese magazines are combined with vegetables. The fresh vegetables visually complete the young bodies, highlighting consumption and each other’s limited preservability.

I really think Coco Rocha should get to China. Beijing is one of the most inspiring cities i’ve been to. Basically its fucking cool, complex and inspiring.
I feel that China as a nation will go through incredible changes as its people engage in social media. 
oh-so-coco:

CHINA - The next social media frontier.After over 2 years on twitter I recently passed a huge milestone of 200,000 followers. That might be a drop in the bucket if your Lady Gaga or Kim Kardashian, but for me, I never thought that many people would be interested in what I had to say. Twitter has been an amazing tool for me to reach out to others and as a service it’s uniting people from all around the world. Except, of course, in a few countries where it’s under ban. One of those countries happens to have 1.3 billion citizens: China.As an experiment, back in October I signed up for the Chinese eqivalent of Twitter, a service called Tencent Weibo and I was shocked at the results. In just over 2 months of using the service I now have over 100,000 new friends China. At this rate I imagine that this number will surpass my twitter followers within a few weeks. I really had no idea China had such a crowd of people interested in the life of a high fashion model but I’m very happy to have found them half the world away!

The Great Wall of China is all you think it’s going to be and more. I was a bit, OK, here-we-go-with-the-touristy-shit… But once i was doing that full-on hike, i felt on top of the world. There weren’t that many people and it was a beautiful clear, cold day. I’m all cliche’s, i know, but sometimes these cliches ring true and being on the Great Wall of China was incredible. I kept thinking “how did i ever end up here?”

Shanghai so far… Loving this complex city.

"OK. This is fucking crazy. I am going to China in about nine hours. I have to do a little work on an assignment (fucking referencing) then I board a plane to Shanghai. I am so ready and also not. I have no plans once i get there but i know i am going to Beijing and i’m going to eat lots of food and walk… and some write. I want to get back to my writing. It feels surreal that only today i was working at a box office and that this time tomorrow i will be in another part of the world."

— Me on a couch at 9:12 pm Brisbane time.

"In four days i will be in Brisbane… I will be working for the Brisbane International Film Festival and then on the 14th of November i am on my way to China… I have to finish intense amounts of school work but it will and has to be done."

I am about to start teaching rounds, I leave to Brisbane to work at the film festival in less than four weeks, I will be working day and nights and have to hand in three assignments but the silver lining is the trip to China!! And what a reward that is! The year has been a pain in the ass as i have had to take some steps back to make some steps forward and it’s all good but there will be nothing better then feeling like an explorer in a country such as China… I am a lucky, lucky man. For now, its Saturday night, and i am happy to chill!
