March 15, 2013 · No Comments

Congratulations to Product Design student Ms. Heyin Oh who will spend her 5th term as an exchange student at Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) this summer! As the sole student to represent Art Center College of Design during the summer, Heyin will also serve as ambassador during this exchange program . She’ll be studying within the Industrial Design department at UdK and working amongst students not just from Germany and Europe, but from all over the world. A native of South Korea, Heyin had lived and traveled throughout Asia before moving to southern California more than seven years ago. This is Heyin’s first time to study abroad, and we wish her a wonderful experience. Bon voyage!
Heyin Oh will wrap up Week 11 at Art Center before departing for Berlin to complete her 5th term abroad.

Konstfack Campus

Konstfack at it’s best. The school is pretty large and is right of the T-Bana (Subway Station) at the stop called Telephonplan. The school is actually located in a lively area, but only because of the school itself. Everything is quite close or in walking distance.

TheView

The view from room with my basil/mint plant. I haven’t decided which it actually is as the smell is not potent enough to really claim to be one or the other. Another industrial design student, Raul, insists that it is basilika (basil in spanish). The dorm is 2 minutes away from the school and so far it has been a nice walk every morning.

NightimeView

View at night.

Oskar&Robot

We did this crazy workshop on the last day of orientation where we found objects and decided their functions and assemblage. It turned out to be quite unusual and we ended up with strange concepts.

Pineapple

This was also from the workshop (it’s me!).

Emergency Numbers: 110 or 112

July 9, 2012 · No Comments

Last night a friend and I were catching up and walking by the river when we saw a boat pass by with several people on it, singing and having a blast. It seemed like a great time. As the boat passed, we later heard a rustle in the bushes followed by a curious splash. We assumed it was yet another boat. Seconds later we hear more noises and as we look towards the direction of the gurgles and the noise, an older man with a worried look on his face approaches us for help. In German he tells us to call the police and through his pantomiming we understood that someone fell into the river. I asked him what the emergency number was and he told me, in German, hundertzwölf. Because my German is definitely not up to par, I thought he said a hundred then twelve. All of this was happening while we heard, what we thought was an older lady–possibly a grandma, screaming in pain and for help in slurs. Luckily, some concerned civilians who were passing by, stopped and corrected the numbers on my phone. They told the police what happened and where we were and within minutes we heard sirens near by. Then another. Then another. Cop cars after firetrucks after ambulances. One after another, they kept showing up, even after the (fairly young, but drunk) woman was saved. At the end, a firetruck with a boat arrived unnecessarily. A boat. Now I know that if ever I’m in a crisis, I should call 110 and/or 112 (not 10012 and/or 10010) and expect half of Berlin’s cops, ambulances, and firetrucks to help me. Also, firetrucks, here in Berlin, have boats.

Mauerpark Flea Market!

During the first couple of weeks in Berlin, I stopped by the Mauerpark Flea Market, one of the more popular weekend markets, especially on a weekend with good weather. It is jammed pack with venders, foods, and people. It has live music, karaoke, vintage clothing, art, and a lot more. I think I just might go back for that quark! So delicious.
