I was quite comfortable with the approach, until I started using Periscope more after the micro-project we did on it a few weeks ago. I enjoy using Periscope quite a lot, Read more →

I tested out my idea to have myself in the physical space while interacting with people in the third space. This essentially makes the paper a interface for me.

Let’s recap: My idea for the final broadcast was the concept of the Escape. In my previous post, I juxtapose a video of a plane taking off and also a scene where the bus is at the Causeway. These two elements of escape in a sense that I am escaping from Singapore but figuratively, I also wish to escape from Read more →
After doing the Jennicam review and having more ideas about the third space, I would like to do a live performance art of me doing make up but I’ll transform myself into different personalities. Eg. I could transform myself to a tom boy, or I could change my hair to purple by wearing a wig.
