“How-do” from Svensk or whatever.
It’s sunday. A lot of things were closed but that stopped me not, went to the old town, which as you might guess is an old town.
Very commercial. lots of plästic “kräp”, but…old, yet new. You can’t really see here the kind of minimalist thing they do: something of a swedish aesthetic tradition so they’re good at making “nothing” look effortless. and have been for years.
It wasn’t snowing, though.
SWEDISH CONTEMPORARY DESIGN
meh…it’s okay for robots. Shopping in Stockholm centre…bit like getting lost in Ikea.
Some of it’s cute but, y’know, stop trying. it’s pseudo-cute really. For cute, look to the japanese. Stylistic Conservativism maybe. this is why the japanese have pokemon while you have Pippi fecking Långstrump. Not cute. Plus, I don’t like things that inspire in me an unerving sexual response that i really shouldn’t really be experiencing. There’s a lot of stuff like that over here.
SOME NEW FAVOURITE THINGS:
BENGT ELDER – An artist and one person-industry, which means he’s daringly unromantic, perhaps even criminally unhip, but still I’ll mention him here. God knows this blog is taking a slide anyway.
Hooray for nice cakes and good quality bread.
