How to Combat a Cat and not Lose your Grip

FeoSo, I made it. I’ve been dreaming of having a cat for quite a while since I’ve seen that little furry cutie at my friend’s house. It was all playful and soft and adorable and I decided to get one too. Note that I’m not one of those crazy cat ladies that are drooling over each and every flea-ridden gremlin. I understand the difference between a cool pet and an ugly pet, and I also understood that having a pet is a huge responsibility, but I still wanted to adopt one. Now I know that being a cat’s master is not only a responsibility but also an enormous pain in the neck.

How to Choose a Pocket Dog

Some people think that dogs should perform the role of guards and protectors of the family, but as for me, the dogs are, first of all, our friends and companions so their size does not matter. Pocket dogs can become loyal friends for you independently of their size.

These dogs are called “pocket” due to their small size – you can carry them in your bag or in your hands. Among pocket dogs are, for example, Chihuahua, Yorkshire terrier, toy poodle, Maltese and so on. The choice of pocket dog should be made with great responsibility as these dogs tend to have problems with their health, so you should know the standards in order to select right breed.

What Does It Mean to Be Photogenic?

A term “photogenicy” firstly appeared in the sphere of cinema. That meant to describe a person who looked much more attractive on a screen rather than in the real life. Beauty, regular facial features, good complexion and expressive eyes are the important factors for being photogenic, though they are not the crucial ones.

A photo is the reproduction of life moments on a surface with slightly alternated brightness and colors. The picture doesn’t possess smells, sounds and context of the life event. The human brain can perceive the images objectively only in cases when they are surrounded by their context. That’s why a person who is considered to be a not very pleasant one in reality may look amazing on his family pictures. We evaluate the image of a person on the whole in an objective reality taking into consideration the sound of his or her voice, the manner of moving, the way of acting and the way he or she lives of course. Even when we see a strange person for the first time all these factors have a great impact on the impression created. When we see a successful photo of an unknown person we see only his “foreside”. A mute and flat picture will underline the bright appearance and the right moment when the photo was taken but nothing else. You even have no idea how the voice of the human depicts may sound.

The project Remembering strangers (2010) depicts disguised people from Mumbai, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo, Naples. All of them are wearing the masks. The initial idea of Clang was to depict his own impressions of strangers. Every single day we meet people which we do not know. And by the end of the day we can hardly describe the features at least one of them. The same idea concerns Clang, “By reducing their facial details to the absolute minimum, it allows them to remain as strangers in my mind, preserving a truer representation of how they have entered my life and my memories”.
