S P A C E | Battambang, ‘The Week the American Jumped Quarantine’ is a special issue from a team of friends of DK’s along with our founding members.
How people are coping with their situations where they are is one story, how we are finding out about things happening in the places where we have deep, dear ties, and reacting, together, in the cloud, is yet another. This is that jam.
Our conversations across the cloud centered on this remarkable piece of news:
A Cambodian-American woman ran away from a Center in Phnom Penh on the night of July 17, 2020 and was found by the police in a guesthouse in Kampong Cham on the evening of the 18th. July 2020. She arrived in Cambodia on July 15, 2020, on a flight with two US Embassy officials who were diagnosed with COVID-19 on July 16. The spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health, confirmed that this was the first case of people fleeing from quarantine. KBN

S P C | Bangkok, ‘The Age of Anxiety’ mixes in some new photography from Bangkok by Dipika Kohli, along with some internet images like the cover shot… stuff that seemed to ‘go’ with the theme.
Because some pictures come from the internet, there’s a feeling of looseness and detachedness that happens naturally in this age of digital communication. Not that we’re experts at that; most of the time it’s just impressions. But there was a breakfast conversation DK overheard that got us thinking, ‘Wow. Is it really this bad?’
It seems that it is.
Where is connection?
The lead story for this is ‘Here Comes the Dance,’ by Dipika Kohli, created at Atelier S P A C E | Battambang in Sept. 2017, kicking off this series and setting our intention for the magazine, too.
Today, we share S P C | BKK, ‘The Age of Anxiety.’
