Lucky. Reflecting lately on the journeys, typing and sharing the gems in S P A C E. Enjoying offline random…

S P A C E || The Creative Process

In a set of conversations these last two weeks in Penang, DK has learned something cool. We found that there are many here who want to talk, in some depth, about the creative process itself. This is exciting. [caption id="attachment_10732" align="alignleft" width="300"] MAKE[/caption] I am reminded of MAKE, a conversation…

The why of S P A C E

WHAT IS S P A C E about? Starting in Battambang in Cambodia in Sept. 2017, we are moving in Asia to discover people who are curious, creative, and ready for something new. Our cocreated Battambang issue was on the topic, Ennui. In Singapore (10-12 Nov) our zine was on…

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…
