half of a horse

I don't know where it came from, Castellucci or something, but I made a bunch of these - laser cut black acrylic and artificial hair. They come as rings, earrings, brooches and pendants

Inside out

This is my project I did in academy on inside out. It contains modified computer keyboard, mouse and a bunch of white gloves with keyboard's letters and signs embroidered on fingers. I just forgot to take pictures the gloves. Hope it will follow later!

Robert's books


Here's one thing that got me excited today - a bookshop I accidentaly found while walking in Riga. It sells (mostly) books in English from its owner's and his peers' libraries. The owner himself is Robert Cottrell, a former EU correspondent for The Economist and The Financial Times and an author for The New York Review of Books, has opened two bookshops under his name here in Riga already. The prices vary from as less as 0.5 Ls (0.7 eu) up to 7 Ls (10 eu) which erases Ebay from the map for a while.
I could not have left empty handed so I've got a copy of a classic - Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's in mint condition and beautiful cover.



The updates on new books and tips about Riga are found at bookshop's website.

Yet Robert has another project - a referrential website The Browser, where he's posting the most interesting and read-worthy articles blogged daily.
