I was sent as a Sports+Travel Magazine writer! Honestly, I never heard of Lijiang until tiger told me and thought it was going to be a "pass-through-city"...
Just came back from exhibiting in Amsterdam at A-Lab with three other amazing artists, Jacquelyn Soo, Marc Nair and Zul Mahmod. It was a two day exhibition (9th, 10th October) and I had so much fun watching people tackle my maze with my live CCTV goggles on. I made a video of my installation. The installation is now known as...
zaobao took a really good picture of me. I mean the shot itself is technically difficult with the bright background, dark interior and reflective screen brightness. Impressed!8 months of going to The Supreme Court that security thought I was being sued or smth lolol. My 'sentencing' was read by Chief Justice Sundaresh on Tuesday and it was in praise!...
