A minute with Life & Style

A minute with Annie Damianou, Graphic Artist/Designer

minute

Where do you live?
In my apartment with my cat

What did you have for breakfast?
Egg, brie, avocado and English mustard on a toasted slice of traditional Cypriot bread. And coffee of course.

Describe your perfect day
It depends on my mood I guess, but a perfect day for me If I may simply say, it is a simple one

Best book ever read?
It’s hard to decide which one is the best but one of my long-time favourites is Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino. Combining two of my favourite things: human emotions and the scientific story of the Universe (as known back in the 60s of course, many ‘facts’ have been re-established)…

Best childhood memory?
Difficult to pick just one. I guess I would refer to all of my vacations with my family in Platres every summer. Most of my vivid childhood memories are from those three months of the summer, every year. Roaming with friends till morning hours.

What is always in your fridge?
Cheese and fruit

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Ithaca album by Bonnie & Klein. It’s a good background companion especially if you are headed to the beach and back, or just simply sitting on the sand.

What’s your spirit animal?
All species of cat. Small and big. Domestic and wild, I mean. But I would admit I feel more of a Sloth. I admire the time it takes to do things haha… So chill and calm.

What are you most proud of?
Accomplishing anything I have accomplished so far

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
I could refer to many scenes in many movies, but what came to mind now is (all of) the movie Ex-Machina. A story about human nature (predictable, beautiful, confused, emotional, needy, naive, great, fragile, controllable, manipulative, rational, irrational, good, bad, free, trapped… everything a non human would be fond of…) and the near future.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
All historical figures of all religions

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
Anywhere really. By anywhere I mean, from the point where everything started to occur, to even very far into the future. Just to please my curiosity on how and why everything started and evolved, and how all will eventually end. If there is a beginning and an ending, that is…

What is your greatest fear?
Stagnation

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Hmm. Nothing I guess. I wouldn’t want to interfere with how things/me came to be.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
Not being supportive

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would pour myself some wine and just sit back and watch.
