THIS MONTH in S P A C E, DK are sharing the new collection, Circumference. It's a selection of short articles DK had first shared in our eZine S P A C E. The pieces were written from January through December, 2016, the 'Year of the Circle.' During that time,…

Change starts with wanting to

  PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY IN MOTION know that the hardest part about starting a thing is, well, starting. In classic high school Newtonian physics, the coefficient of static friction is greater than the coefficient of kinetic friction. Which means that if you had a mass on a flat surface,…

Being offline more

WIFI. Is scarce, here, in Penang. So, more offline time. Eye contact. As I talk in real life about the why of Atelier S P A C E, it's doing something, it's making it clearer. As in, why. As in, for whom, and where. I seek cozy spaces that might…

Towards the next thing, 5N

IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE PREMATURE to start blogging about the next 'N' already, but it is here, in my heart, as soon as the last one finishes. There is, of course, the thank-you not that I am still writing. For those who joined us at 'N' in Hanoi... wow,…

‘N’ is making steps in Hanoi

JUST BOOKED OUR VENUE. For 16N. Terribly exciting, this step. Almost there now. For the real life 'N' moment. Our theme for Hanoi is NARRATIVE. What are the stories we tell to the world? Which ones do we tell ourselves? A conversation installation in DK's signature style (improv, reflection, conversation,…
