Today I stayed home because I became sick yesterday, meh :( but at least I had enough time for homework and to sort out my pictures from last week's trip to Venice with the Academy! It was a big surprise to hear that we were going to the city and La Biennale di Venezia.
We travelled by bus for 12 hours, I probably got 2 hours of sleep that night and when we arrived, we got to throw our stuff in little cabins and headed off to the city by boat.... which I missed so for me the adventure started 1 hour later :')
Venice is absolutely beautiful! First day was about exploring the streets, bridges, shops, restaurants and working on one of our assignments: street-casting. We had to photograph different identities, and then choose one type of person to 'cast' the other days. It was harder than it sounds but a lot of fun!
The second and third day we visited The Biennale. There is a big variety of beautiful, weird, funny, confusing art like paintings, sculptures, sounds, movies, photographs, installations, performances and more. I found it pretty hard to not try to understand everything ha ha! My eyes got even more tired than my legs everyday because I was constantly scanning people, taking pictures, looking at the city & art and the lack of sleep didn't help much either. But it was totally worth it!
