Mina Fina, in her own words, “wakes up everyday with good intentions but ends up eating cakes.” Oh, but she does so much more! Living and working in Slovenia, the artist is a wellspring of creativity. She makes videos, books, drawings, websites, zines, keeps a Polaroid diary, sends exquisite cards to her friends and collaborates on installations.
If it were possible to reproduce Mina Fina’s entire portfolio right here, in this blog post, we’d do it. We like it that much, and want to share it that much. Given the constraints, however, you’ll have to go spelunking on your own. The best we can do is supply a bouquet of links and point to the news page of Mina’s website, which keeps us up to date on her output.
Finally and also worth mentioning is the artist’s interactive experimental comic book project Enoletnica/YearBook. We were lucky enough to obtain a copy of the book project, which is a gorgeous, sturdy diary-calendar divided into twelve months. Cryptic drawings, prompts and designs cover each page, and a sheet of stickers is included for customizing the book. Instructions and further keys to interpreting the book are available each month the book’s corresponding website.
