One week out from leaving and I’m still wrapping up loose odds and ends related to work I’m doing here. I haven’t had the time to actually sit down and formulate a plan on how I’m going to execute the project I’m heading overseas to do. I mean, I have a very developed idea, it’s not that. It’s the part where I actually pull it off. The project in and of itself is loosely centered around the theme of being “untouched by the hands of time”. That’s open enough where it allows me creative liberty to explore a variety of interpretations. Yet also so wide that without a focus it could just get all A.D.D leaving no connecting line between images therefore making for a choppy story.
It’s going to require that I interact with people. It’s going to require that I make myself understood and endear myself to the people I’m working with. Fortunately I’ll have access to the cultural center all day and night during my stay. Hoping to maybe start around there and see what type of connections I can make with the locals.
I guess most important is going to be my need to communicate that I’m working on an art project. Just brushing up on some pre-flight vocabs. To any of my Thai friends out there reading this….I apologize in advance for my poor spelling. I’ve probably written something offensive somewhere. ขอโทษนะขรับ
