S P A C E | ‘The Scandal in Bohemia’

BOSS is reading Sherlock Holmes. (I’ve never read it). BOSS has read ‘The Merchant of Venice’ and a number of other Shakespeare pieces*, which he remarks upon from time to time, saying random things like, ‘That’s just blank verse.’ I, for my part, am amused and bewildered that someone with his capacity for ingesting volumes […]

S P A C E | How to co-create with DK

For the spring of 2019, DK and friends are co-creating the zine series, ‘The Book of New Things.’ Everything that we made so far in S P A C E has been a collaboration with people who have *shown up* for: events, ateliers, online programmes, and conversation parties—for at least two years. It takes time […]

S P A C E | Singapore, ‘The Prospect of Beauty’

  S P A C E | Singapore, ‘The Prospect of Beauty’ launches today in S P A C E, our crowdfunded, no-ads, member-supported weekly digital zine. Since we’re almost finished with our first 12-issue set, ‘A Philosophy of the Moment,’ it’s a good time to take a pause and try to grasp what the […]

Cutting and sewing in S P A C E

Equal to equal. Conversations that meandered, that discovered new and surprising others, in a happened-to-be-in-the-same-place way. That’s what we learned in a catching-up call with Marine Ky about how it went on Saturday at Atelier S P A C E | Paris. She shared a few pictures, which we had posted on IG, too. Designing S […]

14 March | ‘The Resistance’

Let’s talk about ‘The Resistance.’ A conversation party and zine reading. DK and friends in Hanoi invite you to be a part of this very limited-edition popup, S P A C E | Hanoi. Save the date for 14 March. Hosted by A. Spaice, who was last in Hanoi to make ‘N’ Hanoi: NARRATIVE. For […]

How we’re making S P A C E on the road

Best part of making S P A C E is the chance encounters, stories-in-the-field, and finding out of things that happen when you simply create a bounded box of ‘where’, and ‘when.’ To show up. And see. What the things that are there (and also within, and so many more things to say about this), […]

Postmodern Nomads

Some updates. Postmodern Nomads is a new online forum, getting set to start soon. Inspired. Lots of conversations lately about this topic. Weekly zines are going well, too, by the way. I decided to simplify everything… here’s how it works now. Forums are where we develop ideas, then we make the zines out of what we gather by talking […]

New traffic

I REMEMBER THIS. Spam comments. Requests for jobs at DK. This must be what happens when you start blogging again. I mean, like really blogging, not just writing the clickbait-y stuff that I think so many people who write blogs that are professional service company people with a ‘plus a blog with them’ do. I […]

S P A C E | Rovaniemi, ‘Arctic Circle’

Today, in S P A C E, we share S P A C E | Rovaniemi, ‘Arctic Circle.’ Discovery. Connexion. Recommencements. And starts. But most importantly: showing up for the I-don’t-even-know-what-it-is-yet.   ‘I’m listening’ ‘Arctic Circle’ is  heavily inspired by a conversation that had begun in a southeast Asian locale, in autumn of 2016, and moved […]

1 March, New salon: S P A C E | ‘Postmodern nomads’

Sourced from Culture360: In 1996 Michael Haerdter of Berlin’s Künstlerhaus Bethanien called artists ‘post-modern nomads’ or ‘wanderers between cultures’. Migrating artists, he said, ‘belong with the many transcultural messengers of a world whose keywords are nomadism and globalism.’ Goes on to say the fact that we see the invention (and spreading about) of residential art centers relates to […]

Currently: Making S P A C E in Việt Nam

DK are on the road. Indefinitely. Again. Putting all the stories together in-situ, both for friends, for editors I know and whose work to help me make things better is very much welcome and valued, and for the guests who are part of our online forums and are subscribers to our online community, S P […]

Atelier S P A C E | Paris, with Marine Ky

Soon, in Paris. Artist Marine Ky, a friend of DK’s in Paris, will host this unique, once-off ‘zinemaking’ atelier. You’ll have a chance to hear the story of how she created the works also on display at the venue, as her solo exhibition is running currently, too. Expect the unexpected, along with: sewing, cutting, collaging, […]

S P A C E | Rovaniemi, ‘Arctic Circle’

‘… published books…’ ‘…’ ‘Wait. Have you published a book, DK?’ ‘Yeah.’ ‘Well, is it on Amazon?’ ‘No! I don’t like that company ! The way they treat people and–‘ ‘Listen. Amazon’s not going to change and people are still going to use it, whether or not you have qualms with the way they treat […]

Getting more and more serious

THIS MAGAZINE stuff is a lot of fun. I’m enjoying searching around about typography design, lately, for example. My old typography consultant kind of ‘ghosted’ on me, which is a tough thing to accept but I have to move forward, so I’m looking up things on the internet now*. It’s so funny. The first vid […]

Beam me up

WHAT IS ‘The Work of Art?” Conversations that began in an online forum, The Mirror, opened the discussions about this in early 2018. After a year of ruminations,  one key reflection is this. If you don’t show up for the chance encounters in the places where you have no idea what’s going to happen, the […]
