The One With The Glitchhhhh

I followed exactly what randall wrote in the step by step manual.

Guess what, it was successful! I was really happy with the results!
Below are my process. Starts with the original image.

beautiful colourful haze

Yes, opening on preview and on photoshop makes a different! But I actually love this!

I keep going and this final image did not look like the original, so I think I should stop right? Or should I keep on glitching?

Manhattan Gone Going

Singing My Way Home

I was walking home after buying some food at a nearby food stall.
There were beautiful lights being put up along the trees, so I decided to broadcast it to the whole world! How cliche is that! But that’s what happened! And it reminds me of Coldplay’s song Fix You, where the lyrics goes like ‘lights will guide you home’. So watch the video to listen to me singing.

I was surprised that there were at least 3 people were watching me! I am not going to lie, I’ve been finding good videos to use for this assignment and each time I broadcast all my previous videos, it does not have any viewer. But today, there were at least 3! Total viewers was 6 according to the statistic! This actually tells something about the internet, that it is random. I mean there are definite ways/methods to get viewers but sometimes, luck plays a part. Maybe during the time I was broadcasting, there were people just scrolling through Asia and happen to see me.

Finding a good reason to broadcast to the world is actually harder than it seems. Finding a narrative and making people to keep watching your broadcast is not something easy. How do directors and actors make one keep still and watch the movie till the end is actually not rocket science but there are some science involve. With periscope, anybody can just start and stop watching other people’s broadcast easily, its like having a power to look at scenes from all over the world but not the power to control what scenes though.

The power and responsibility to broadcast something to the internet is huge. Similar to how the Videofreex broadcast their material to the television, it is such a powerful way to get things across to the masses.


Right after Art In The Age of Colonialism class with Prof. Sujatha, I head to Canteen 4 for my lunch. My friends were already there as they head there first as they finish class earlier. It was my first time to canteen 4 as there was a new western foodstall called ‘dams’  that just opened recently. Moreover, it’s Halal, so I need to check this out! This video will show me walking towards the canteen, to looking at the menu.

Guess what did I order.




The date is 6th August 2008. It was the last day of school for the first semester during my First Year in Republic Polytechnic. It was a time where I still have no direction in life. Honestly, I wasn’t really happy to be thrown into this school because I have no other choices as I didn’t get to the Polytechnic that I want. Instead, I was donated to Republic Polytechnic, with a diploma in Design for Interactivity. DSC06954

So that day, we have to make a presentation. I can’t remember the topic of the presentation but I remember it was some kind of entrepreneurial module. So anyway, our Facilitator, his name is PJ, is a very fun and engaging teacher. That day, right after our first meeting, suddenly, PJ announces that he is giving out awards! Awards with funny categories! And guess what! I’ve won! But it was a weird award, it was for the Ultimate Slacker Award! DSC06963

I’m all smiles in the photo above but actually, I might be feeling dampened and embarrass maybe. Okay maybe not embarrass but sad that I got such a degrading award. But I know it was all fun and games! Actually, I think I kinda deserve that title. Okay, I am not really a slacker in class but that’s what the impression my classmates have of me I guess. For my defence, I am a chill person, not slacking. I manage to complete any task that was assigned and guess what, I have a GPA of 3.5 out of 4 for my first semester! I did even better than most of my classmate.DSC06974

W36J was my class and being our first year and this is our first batch of classmates we have, we were pretty close actually. Everyone knows how I can be goofy and such but I do get my work done. From this point, I still wasn’t sure what I want to do in life and have not yet discovered ART/DESIGN/MEDIA.DSC06972

While my other classmates get awards as well, their awards were more decent for example, most comical, most talkative, most irritating and etc. While I got the weird award of Ultimate Slacker Award, it kinda pushes me to be better actually. Sometimes in life, you have to put up a fake front to show people that you are interested in things. Sometimes, even though I am into something but I won’t show so much enthusiasm, because like I said, I am a chill guy. DSC06978 copy

So here’s a class photo with our loving Facilitator, Mr PJ!
