An Ink Test and a Mad Wall

I really wouldn’t be a psychology student if this dress print didn’t remind me of Rorschach’s Inklebot Test. It consists of several boards with colorful ink spots and the potential participant of the examination is supposed to interpret it by pointing out the answer that is most adequate in his/her opinion. The accuracy of this test is of course controversial, but out of all the psychology research tools this one’s by far most artistic.

The results of Inklebot Test are diversified, and so can be the context of wearing that dress. Which is exactly why I love it. I wore it for Christmas Eve with silver jewellery and it was festive. I wore it for bussiness training with black jacket and it was formal. Today I wore it with denim and it’s super fun, especially with futuristic white sunglasses and in front of South-American style graffiti. (It’s the graffiti we have vis-à-vis the local library, isn’t my study-town just awesome?). There’s also a rabbit-cangaroo hybrid on a leash next to it, which I don’t think quite matches, but in a very strange way – it does… it’s a mad wall, let’s say. It’s a “Donnie Darko meets Alice in Wonderland in Peru”.

The graffiti may seem familiar in the usage of colors, and not just because you have a picture from your trip to Venezuela as a screensaver. The latino street art was a major part of latest Prada project The Heart Of Multitude. Six muralists: Gabriel Specter, El Mac, Mesa, Pierre Mornet, Stinkfish and Jeanne Detallante, were invited to decorate the Milano show space with their illustrations “to engage themes of femininity, representation, power, and multiplicity”. But if you didn’t have the pleasure of attending Prada’s fashion show, you can still find some of the women portaits on Prada’s handbag collection for Spring/Summer 2014 (which is now, finally and thankfully).

Hope you like the photos 🙂 (by the way, I think I nailed the movie reference thing)
