SHIFTAZINE is about celebrating what is out there, already in your life, right in front of you.
SHIFTAZINE aims to give some useful insights, to pose some questions, and to make you look at everything differently.
Hopefully, it will help shift the contemporary perception of beauty and aesthetics.
SHIFTAZINE is created by Jacqueline Hill and is associated with DESIGNASAW.

Shiftazine was recently in Bucharest,
Romania. Now Romania is not a place one
thinks to go to, like one would plan and save to go to Italy, or Greece. But that is a pity as it is a land of strange
connected beauty, the city of Bucharest is an odd blend of parks that are more
like deep green forests right in the middle of the urban centre and architecture,
which defies classification, which just keeps on surprising, bemusing and
Anyway, while shiftazine was wondering
these strange, unfamiliar streets, they discovered this exhibition. The artist only spoke Romanian, and shiftazine,
while speaking the universal language of creativity, does not speak that
particular tongue. So it was up to the
work to speak for itself.
Make of it what you will, shiftazine thinks
it is all very beautiful.
