Andy By Design, Human Design

Andy By Design, Human Design Well, I'm imagining myself saying "Andy By Design, Human Design" in a James Bond style like "My name is Bond, James Bond". It's very interesting how people always assume that because of the "by Design" my website is all about design. But that's only half of the truth behind my website's name. The other half-truth is that the name is referring to me being who I am. More specifically,  the way I have been designed to be by the universe. I know this doesn't say much so let me explain it a bit more. There is a theory that we all have been designed to behave in a certain way. Astrology, for example, takes our birth day, time and place to determine our personality and some general characteristics. In astrology what is important is the alignment of planets and stars in a specific timestamp. On the other hand, Human [...]

The Dictatorship of the Communistic Neo-architecture

Let me ask you a question, have you been in any property site lately? Have you maybe been browsing the new developments in your area? Have you noticed anything significant? My answer to my questions is that yes, I have been on property sites almost every day, to see new developments not just in my area but in the southeast Northern Ireland, or wherever in Northern Ireland you can see the sea. And yes, unfortunately I've noticed something very unpleasant. I've noticed that regarding the new development there is a communistic neo-architectural dictatorship. I guess you might wonder (or maybe not?) what I mean by "communistic neo-architectural dictatorship". Well, in communistic regimes houses used to be the same. One house next to the other. Most commonly apartment buildings, like a brutalistic block of concrete. A block that contains apartments one on top of each other and next to the other. People lived in houses without personality. Houses [...]

Hands: the eyes of the soul

Hands, the eyes of the soul. I remember something very interesting my tutor told me a few years ago. It  was when I was preparing my portfolio for the Foundation year of Art and Design at Ulster University. A bit of a story here. You see, when I moved to Northern Ireland I didn't really know how to draw. So I enrolled in a couple of drawing classes and I had a private tutor to help me prepare the portfolio. My tutor was very kind, and as I have said many times, I felt like I had a mother here in Northern Ireland in this  strange new place. Anyway, I am really and forever grateful to her. Now on hands. So, she was regularly giving me tasks to do at home. One of those tasks was to draw my face, like a portrait drawing. The interesting part was that I had to draw my [...]

New Years are never truly happy

It's February and the year changed one and a half months ago, but the new Buddhist year changes tomorrow, so I guess I can still wish "happy new year".  But that's not the point of this post; to wish happy new year, or fear. The way I see it is that every year (like every day) we are closer to our death (Oh, no, I'm speaking for such a sad/dark thing, boohoo, get over it).  Yep, that's the reality everyday we wake up and we should be grateful for that cause there are people who didn't. But nevertheless, to celebrate and wish "happy" new year? Let's be honest, we all know how our year will go. It will be the same as the previous one. Unfortunately, things don't change. What of course changes is our health. SO why not to wish healthy new year? Anyway, I am wishing you all a healthy new year. A year [...]
