O | Jana Jakimovska
Digital, because the future is digital. Photographed, because, in this era of copy-paste, the old skills are nothing but unnecessary luxuries. Scribbled, because everyone can scribble. Textually burdened, because we live in the time of memes, snapchat and purikura. Self-portrait, because your story will be easier to bear seen through someone else's distorted face. Facts, because the gods should be silenced once and for all. Humour, because there is not a subject that shouldn’t be made fun of. Orgasm, because the things we don't talk about cease to exist. - Jana Jakimovska
