Smileland

Thailand is known as a smileland.  Not only the sun is warm, but also people’s smile is very warm.  We can see MR. Macdonald is very happy living in Thailand!

Move

‘Move’ is a contemporary art exhibition that will occupy a temporary space spice in Vyner Street, London, from 11th October until 4th November 2007. This multi media exhibition represents a collection of leading artists working in close geographical proximity in the far west peninsula of Cornwall.

‘Move’ is an attempt to remind, rejoice and confront, demonstrating moments of lucidity, vulnerability and resolve in the search for transcendence and meaning in a nihilistic and prosaic world, an honest and liberated exploration of the psyche, its yearnings and its conflicts in the 21st century.

aiik People – SARAH

Hi. My name is Sarah, and though I grew up in London, if you met me you would probably never guess that!  My parents are American, and I was raised as an American… in England.  I’ve always thought that surroundings and environment have a huge effect on people, and it’s difficult to discover who you truly are until you try yourself out in a few different places. 

To that end, I have now tried myself out in London, Scotland, Canada, Paris, and most recently, I’ve returned to my parents’ roots in Boston, USA.  It was in Paris that I first became part of the aiik team, and it is really exciting to see the venture growing so quickly.  In addition to my knowledge of the fashion retail industry, I hope to be able to contribute to the project a new perspective as I settle into a familiar culture in a foreign land.  Despite the vast geographical distances, and different backgrounds, I like the idea that, through aiik, we can still share ideas and passions which are ultimately very similar.

aiik People – KAREN

I was born 26 years ago in Luxembourg’s central hospital. My parents decided my name would be Karen. It was in Luxembourg that I lived for the first 17 years of my life before heading up north to Scotland for my studies… back to my origins (although I was born in Luxemburg, both my parents are pure bred Scots).   A keen traveler, linguist and perpetual student, my studies took me around the globe to places such as St Andrews, Siena, Firenze, Santiago de Compostela, London, Salamanca, Padova, Strasbourg, Paris…It was in Paris that I had the pleasure of meeting the aiik team and was invited to become part of the project! 

I currently work in Paris at a leading advertising company. When I am not working I am usually on the road, taking photos or designing and making my own jewellery.
