26th October 2014













I had a wonderful weekend celebrating Ryan's 21st birthday. After spending almost 48 continuous hours with him it was kind of hard to let him go. Time really flies, it whizzes past and then suddenly we're here. I feel super blessed to be able to celebrate this milestone with him. Ryan has changed a lot from when I first met him and he's grown to be irreplaceable. 

Spent the night at USS (which was amazing btw if you're thinking of going, 1st Nov is still open). They really upped their game this year, 3D Haunted house(MUST GO)(PSYCHEDELIC), epic opening show and actually scary scare zone (Boogeyman and Scary Tales). There was this witch at Scary Tales, she made me scream. Had a really good night at Fairmount. We also caught Fury, which is officially the most stressful movie of 2014. It was too real and too raw and I was on edge the whole movie. I don't think war movies are cool, they make me uncomfortable and sad and renew my passion for world peace. But, Fury is a really good movie. I would recommend. Wish the weekend never had to end, time spent with people you love is never enough.

In Lust With


Currently lusting over: 
Freckles, strategically placed freckles. Freckles are suddenly everywhere and I am in love. They make me think of bare faced dolly, doe eyed girls with luscious lips. Something I often tend to lean towards and can be found in embarrassing amounts when one browses through my sketch book. Unfortunately for me, I have no freckles. Sad as it may seem, there is hope.


Enter > THE FRECKLE PENCIL!
by Topshop Beauty

I stumbled across this online and now I feel the itch and the itch must be relieved. I'm not 100% sure if they have this in Singapore but I will check it out. All the freckles I could ever want in a pencil. Ryan has beautiful freckles but he hates them. Do all people with freckles hate their freckles? Freckles are so lovely. 

Also, pastel make up. There are no words. There is just something very dream-like and surreal when we cross that bridge of cotton candy pink and baby blue. It's just so beautiful to look at.

Donezo












Here's to all the artists that contributed to this project.
Thank you and thank you.

This project is one that I will never forget. I enjoyed this so much and it truly was a pleasure to put together. Everyone that participated was creative and unique and I could not have asked for better participants. Thank you for approaching me and submitting your entry. I cannot remember when I last enjoyed a graded project this much.

This has really opened my eyes to the internet and how amazing it really is. It's incredible how it connects people from all walks of life and how it sometimes is that last bit of holding two people together. I cannot thank everyone one enough. 

If you're wondering what this project really is about, I will explain.
This was something I put together in response to an assignment on post-internet art. Post-internet art can be very confusing but it is not referring to a time after the internet because well, the internet is still here. It refers to the internet state of mind, how we as normal people or artists are sub-consciously aware of the multiple platforms available and how we shape our art in response to that. Post-internet art frequently addresses the issues of multiple authorships, infinite reproducibility, connectivity, interactivity and the shortening of attention spans. 

So, my project addresses these issues. I made a template and people saved it, modified it and sent it back. So, whose art is it really now? Is it mine, because I birthed this project? Does it belong to the respective artists that modified the template? Is there plagiarism because they all have similar attributes? I connected with many people and this entire project was interactive. People used the internet to connect with me and this in turn created a little unconscious community. I could go on about post-internet art and how my project responds to it but I think I've given you a good taste of it.

Once again, thank you to everyone who participated. 
I could have never done it without you.
