Why a blog?

Since I have graduated from my Master’s just a couple of weeks ago, I’ve had so many little lights turned on in my head - new ideas for projects, applications I am going to send out,  people I should connect with and among all, this blog. 


I am not entirely sure about the direction of this - I do not even have a name for this yet, but I know for sure if I don’t start now, I may never start at all. Soon I’d find myself too occupied with making a living, I doubt I’ll have an abundance of time to experiment with writing much. 


For now, I ‘d like to use this blog to talk about just about anything - photography, my works, other people’s works, life in general, new ideas and motivation, music and the theatre, books, complaints. 


For the next few weeks, I am going to be writing about the ‘forgotten works’. I recently showed some of my older works that I never really showed anyone to a friend, and knowing my work now, he was able to point out what would summarise my entire practice so far, that I was just standing too close to see! We live in a perpetual forward motion gear and it’s always about the ‘new thing’ and the ‘next thing’, so when once and every while we slow down and look back, we might just discover the answers we have always been searching for. 


Finally, if you have any inquiries / request / submission to make, please drop me an email at siqilea98@gmail.com Looking forward to hearing from you.
