Skysenshi’s notes on the project:

While we were coming up with this exhibit, we didn’t have solid brainstorming sessions. The three of us (Rebie, Papavik and I), just decided to write down our thoughts on what we mean when we say “transitions”. Here are fragments of my consciousness before I began working on my contribution to this exhibit…

My life is full of turning points because I reinvent myself at least every two to three years. I reached the end of the last reinvention a couple of years ago and I thought I would stagnate, stuck where I stood, not knowing where to turn next. In 2010, however, I stopped waiting and made drastic changes, from physical (I let my natural hair curls grow back) to emotional (I let go of a few relationships and explored new ones) to intellectual (I finally understood why I am in a PhD course that I thought didn’t fit me). My career, which was always the first to shift, is the last to transition. I just recently let go of an academic position to concentrate on my artistic side, which I had almost forgotten. Being the assistant director of a multimedia arts school, I was forced to simply observe art. I want to stop observing art. I want to go back and live it.

At least, until the next transition.
