|Gaga's Boudoir Window at Barney's New York by Ingrid Mida 2011|
Stepping away from for a weekend was refreshing in so many ways and it re-energized me. I also thought of all the good things that have come my way from being a blogger - the people I've met, the exhibitions I've seen, the friends I've made.... I recently submitted an abstract for a paper called "Blogging, Benjamin and Foucault" to the Fashion Tales 2012 conference in Milan. In equating bloggers to Baudelaire’s and Benjamin's concept of the flaneur and drawing on Foucault’s theories on the aesthetics of existence, I hope to recast the blog as a creative portal and a form of conversational erudition. Call me crazy.... I don't know if it will fly, but sometimes you just have to jump off the cliff....
