students just came in with a bag of booze -- sa(i)d it's for the "after rajko party". while rajko grlic, il professore maggiore a.k.a. the doge of hilovv, is just having his fourth round of mentoring sessions in the splendid isolation of our venerable villa herion, the tide of expectations is getting ever higher -- both sides! good so, as night after night students are honestly dripping audiovisual blood in preparations for that reality check -- as much as they sincerely try to transfer those intricate craft processes of venetian shoe- violin-, grafitti-, pizza- and glassbeads-makers into the language of film, and also the non-film students seem to be enjoying being sunk ankle >> knee >> deep>>er into it all..

No, pa je tudi nas na Portugalskem ujela jesen in muhasto vreme. Res se že lep čas nisem javila tukaj, ampak toliko bolj pridno pišem na mojem blogu, kjer se javljam praktično vsak dan. Nekaj teksta, nekaj slik in vsem je jasno kako se imamo in kaj počnemo mi "portugalci".
Še vedno sem navdušena nad izmenjavo, všeč mi je šola, všeč so mi predavanja in mislim, da bom pridobila precej novega znanja in izkušenj, zato ostajam mnenja, da je ta izmenjava zagotovo ena boljših odločitev, ki sem jih sprejela v zadnjih letih.

The second day of Visioneca was paced somewhat differently than the strict 50-film staccato of the day before, with host-of-the-day Bob Cotton's very own fluxus manner. Still I wonder, how do the English manage to get things done quite precisely on time, but looking as if punctuality or schedules were the last thing they cared about. So again, I shall mention only the most memorable: Kavi, a sunrising graduate student from Bournemouth, presented her BA project "cerebral interface" and even though it didn't work live on Paul's head, it left a convincing impression (and optimism) of the things to come -- visualizing states of mind,  the wild dream of many a media artist of the last century.

What to say at the end of the day -- when 50 experimental films were thrown your way? Well I'll go for the creme the la creme that was left drooling from my image-tormented brain (enhanced by an original northern-wind cold), so:

The morning session left all the children quite happy, amused by Lizzie Oxby-the-prodigy's supershort extravaganzas and topically opened with Giovanni Bucci's "The Last Dream", reminiscent roughly of what most of us must have had last night -- concerning the fact that full moon is coming up those chilly skies. Lucky we were inside --

The exceptional inquisitiveness with photography as the then "new medium" is what makes Julia Margaret Cameron worth of Trust -- and we are humbled to be hosted by her trustees: Bob and Mary, while staying at Gail's superfab Room with a View (over the Freshwater bay and the "House", the venue of Visioneca, c. f. early morning pic from our window below). All this in a circle of hundred yards -- including Dimbola, where yesternight (after a hyperyummie fish pie + cake ++ by Mary) we attended a vernissage of local children's black&white photography workshop. Bob made a short speech, so much more to the point: how will they ever do anything important, and understand the importance of what they did, if they do not learn what was there before -- analog photography

No, že lep čas je odkar sem se prvič javila tukaj. Na mojem osebnem blogu pridno poročam o vseh prigodah, ki se nam zgodijo tu na Portugalskem. Skratka, na kratko napisano tukaj: imamo se super, uživamo in pridno začenjamo s predavanji in prvimi nalogami. Mislim, da je bila tale izmenjava zame najboljša odločitev in res sem vesela, da se vse tako odlično odvija.
Danes smo šli v Peniche in si pogledali tamkajšno obalo, ter seveda Rip Curl Pro, ki se ravnokar odvija tam. Razmere niso bile ravno idealne, ampak že sam občutek, ki ga dobiš v množici surferjev je odličen. =)

The Media Arts and Practices master programme has started -- today in full-formal, and -frontal interaction, at the University of Nova Gorica, School of Arts in Gorizia, taking off as a bold pilot, into the great wide open of promising productions and intriguing collaborations. We have been together for two weeks now, for a gradual tune-in, on the prodigy wings of our Alvarez-the-Flying-Fortress (to open ceremoniously on Tuesday - come in!), with open windows and doors for all the fresh ADRIAiR influx..

Še dve novi objavi na mojem blogu, dneva 10 in 11, ter kako smo prvič uzrli Atlantski ocean in bili navdušeni kot majhni otroci. =D Komaj čakamo, da se spet podamo na plažo in morda tokrat v roke celo primemo surf... Skratka, dogaja se nam... vedno bolj... Ampak kaj ko se počasi začne tudi študij in resnost, čeprav mislim, da nam bo uspelo uskladiti tako zabavo kot tudi obveznosti. Se bomo vzeli v roke, ko bo treba.

Odločila sem se, da bom na mojem blogu pisala dnevnik, ki bo seveda povezan z bivanjem na Portugalskem in s statusom Erasmus študenta na izmenjavi. Kadar pač ne bom imela časa ali interneta, da bi redno objavljala vsak dan ločeno, sem se odločila, da pač združim nekaj dnevov v eno objavo. Tokrat so to dnevi od 1 do 9.

V enem filmu gledamo potencialno prihodnost sveta, v katerem se otroci ne rojevajo več, v drugem pa moška, ki se pretvarjata, da sta ženski. Ni težko ugotoviti, kateri je akcijska drama, kateri pa komedija, kajne?
