Time for Reflection

Before I came to London I had completed a bachelor in Arts and Management, which is basically the same course as the one at Kingston University. There were obviously differences, both because the one at Kingston is at masters level and because the content was different. However, many of the modules had a quite similar … Continue reading

Imitate – not innovate?

Innovation does not necessarily entail that a product or invention is entirely new. Innovation includes combining what is already out there and known with something new or in a new way.

Real Men Don’t Buy Girls

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have recently launched a campaign whose purpose is to work towards the elimination of sex slavery worldwide.

I’ve been kind of separated from the world lately, (or at least that’s how it felt), because I didn’t have internet at home. Having to go somewhere every time you need … Continue reading

Before she became … Continue reading

Frieze Art Fair

The Frieze Art Fair was a new way of experiencing art for me. It was well organized and despite the enormous site, it was fairly easy to find your way around. First I was impressed; All this amazing art in one place, all the curious people, all the artists. After a while I became overwhelmed. … Continue reading
