Creative Project. London 2017
This was a creative project, it isnot my point of view on the subject. Even though Social Media (SM) may cause frustration and irritation sometimes, it proves to be one of the most precious tools to exchange information, opinions, inspiration and ideas. Although as every powerful tool SM has to be use with consideration and fully consciously.*
*SM point of view might change with time. Check this space for more thoughts on this subject.

[A matryoshka doll (Russian: матрёшка; IPA: [mɐˈtrʲɵʂkə] ( listen), matrëška), also known as a Russian nesting doll, or Russian doll, [russian doll. (n.d.). Collins English Dictionary – Complete & Unabridged 10th Edition. Retrieved April 14, 2016.] is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another. The name “matryoshka” (матрёшка), literally “little matron”, is a diminutive form of Russian female first name “Matryona” (Матрёна) or “Matriosha” [Oxford English Dictionary Online. Accessed 2011-03-25]
[Matryoshkas are used metaphorically, as a design paradigm, known as the “matryoshka principle” or “nested doll principle”. It denotes a recognizable relationship of “object-within-similar-object” that appears in the design of many other natural and crafted objects. Examples of this use include the matrioshka brain and the Matroska media-container format.
The onion metaphor is of similar character. If the outer layer is peeled off an onion, a similar onion exists within. This structure is employed by designers in applications such as the layering of clothes or the design of tables, where a smaller table nests within a larger table, and a smaller one within that.
