Good morning, lovelies! We have an oh-so-exciting announcement for you today. Our friend Greg Finck, is hosting a workshop from May 21-24, 2018, in Paris – and we’ll be there with some incredibly talented people! In celebration of the news, we’re taking a look at the enchanting images captured at last year’s Alice in Wonderland inspired workshop, which all came together with the help of Branco Prata Studios, Rime Arodaky, Bella Belle, Laetitia C. Fleurs d’Atelier, and more. Just TRY not to get ridiculously excited for 2018’s workshop after watching the video from last year, captured by Pascal Délé.
From designer Sofia Ferreira of Branco Prata Studios… Time has the importance one gives it, and what we do with time is infinitely more important. This is a reflection about the perception of everything that surrounds us and also a deliberation on how we see and interpret reality. There are different realities and we are the only ones responsible for the reality we choose to live in. We must never obliterate the importance of our five senses and what they display in regards of the reality we choose to live in.
This workshop is an alternate reality, and as in Alice’s Wonderland fable, everything is immeasurable! The world – your reality – is ready to be explored and questioned. In our interpretation of the tale, Alice is bold, fearless, and adventurous. Also agile, cunning, and communicative. She loves to explore the unknown, embrace new realities, and often questions everything that surrounds her.
Her journey begins with curiosity. As Alice ventures into the forest, the sound of her footsteps becomes deafening. The trees seem to close the way and the movement of her body blend in with the gentle breeze. “What is this place that I feel so drawn to? Where is this rabbit hole taking me?” At the same time, Alice feels frightened but with an enormous desire to follow the path that is taking her to a whole new world, to a whole new reality. This is the first visual impact of Wonderland. Alice immediately perceives a new reality, a parallel universe, where everything she sees is bright and vivid and more euphoric than any person could ever imagine. It’s a marvelous imaginary realm, a world of fantasy or illusion. Welcome to Wonderland, dear Alice.
