This week’s word is community. According to our good friends at Wikipedia, it is defined as:
A community is a small or large social group of living things who have something in common, such as norms, religion, values, or identity.
We’ve seen in this week submissions both the idea of geographical community or virtual community.
Particularly, community relates strongly to the toy photography community and to us here in Stuck in Plastic. As a community mostly active through social media, it fits in the category of community centered around a virtual space. However, creating social connections in the physical world and expanding our community into real-life relationships is also important to us. This is why we organize each year a toy safari…
So what better way, than sharing some more details about the 2018 edition of the Stuck in Plastic toy safari as part of this weeks word, community!
Hi to the Stuck in Plastic community!
You probably don’t know me.
I am Karine.
I’m the humble owner of a toy photography blog (wait, what?!) and I had the chance to meet @ballou34 and @Me2 three weeks ago in Paris.
Me meeting half the Stuck In Plastic Crew.
Everything started in January, when I read on the blog that Stuck in Plastic was part of an exhibition in Paris in February.
It made my blood boil!
A Toy Photography exhibition in Paris?
With people I follow every day?
Let’s check my schedule….
I’m Karine, a French girl living in the South of France and I’m the girl behind Eat my Bones. During my free time I enjoy taking pictures of my small skeletons friends : Edgar, Rebecca and Peter. You can follow my adventures on eatmybones.com
stuckinplastic - Comments Off on Art Exhibition – Le 6 Brick
From February 8th through February 25th, 2018, the 6b Community Organization will be hosting the First International Contemporary Art Exhibit related to the use and usages of LEGO® bricks in the city of light, Paris, France.
The exhibit will feature some thirty internationally acclaimed artists, who all use the same medium as a basis for their work and for further research and included the creative toy photography collective, Stuck In Plastic.
The show will also allow for the artists coming together in the same locale – le 6b- to work within a space which focuses specifically on sharing, creative endeavor and networking, or what amounts to the spreading of others’ arts and information.
The participation in the exhibit of active residents and interns of the 6b Community Organization, as sponsors and artists, is also in keeping with the members’ grassroots beliefs. The exhibit and its organizing allow for the members of the 6b to expand their own networks and creative processes, and to work, via the LEGO ® medium, alongside other new artists.
Last month was the Paris Air Show.
You may have read my article on the subject. It was a great experience. I had so much fun taking pictures with LEGO minifigures in the middle of airplanes.
And because last month’s word was craftsmanship, I thought it would be a good idea to take one of those picture and describe the crafts I used to achieve the initial vision. Let me drive fly you through the whole process Continue reading “I believe I can fly…”
If you like airplanes (and I am not talking about this really funny movie), you may know that every two years the Paris Air Show is organized at the Le Bourget Airport, just outside Paris, It’s one of the biggest events of its kind. It’s basically a trade exhibition for the aerospace and defense industries with a public airshow. Like every edition there is a lot of money at stake during those 7 days, with aircraft manufacturers announcing new products and airlines buying airplanes,.. And guess what. The 2017 edition of the Paris Air Show took place a couple of weeks ago.
He is a lover of good food, good wine and good art. He is a connoisseur of some sort. And, being 4 brick tall, he likes to wander around his own city: Paris, the city of lights.
Always carrying a baguette, he walks around with his small dog, a French Bulldog (of course). He wears a marinière (a striped shirt), a beret on his head, and a small red scarf around his neck.
Marcel likes his city. He often starts his day at a café. His favourite one is “Le café des 2 moulins”. That’s where the movie Amélie (or Le Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain, in French) was shot. A charming place.
After a coffee and a croissant, he stopped by a “boulangerie” (bakery) to buy a baguette for the day. Leaving Montmartre (that’s where he lives), he passed by the Moulin Rouge and jumped inside a “Metro” (the subway).Continue reading “Marcel, a Parisian in Paris”
