Interstitial space

ONCE UPON A TIME, a very smart person wrote a thing about my art. I guess that was the thing that threw me off. 'Art.' It was weird, because I thought I was an engineer-architect-journalist-designer. But I was making things that someone with a real eye, experience, and like I…

The way it’s going

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…
