Steel Sculpture by Korean sculptor Park Chan Girl

“Korean sculptor Park Chan Girl constructs metal sculptures from thin metal layers he calls “sliced images” that resemble three dimensional topography charts. He also meticulously welds thousands of small steel nuts into a delicately textured skin, moulding it into human and animal forms.” via whudat.de Who would’ve thought steel could look this graceful?

Park has a BFA in Sculpture from Chungnam National University and an MFA in Fine Arts from KyungHee University.  He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Korea and China.

Copenhagen bookstore jaunt

Before exploring the independent bookstores, usually I like to start by visiting the biggest and most popular ones, just to get a glimpse on the popular titles at the current moment. My first visit was Arnold Busck, located in Købmagergade, a side street to Strøget, the most populat tourist area. This bookstore has an American bookstore feel, with wood and green interior and signage, similar to Borders and Starbuck’s. Therefore I only spent a few minutes here, browsing all 3 floors within 10 minutes. There is a small cafe, Baresso by the corner, where customers can sit facing the window, enjoying their books and people-watch.

The Bookshop is located in a 3 floor building and it has been a central part of the city atmosphere since the beginning of the 1900s. Here, you can find a great assortment of books on arts, architecture and photography, interesting books on food and wine, as well as children’s books, audio books, tourist guides and maps. You will also find a wide range of literature in the Danish language as well as English and many many other. Also, there is a famous coffee bar called Baresso on the second floor of the building.

I wish to be the girl who sit by the window sill, watching the passerby while reading and sipping coffee on such a glorious sunny day
