Don’t be daunted. Just do your job. Continue to show up for your piece of it, whatever that might be. If your job is to dance, do your dance. If the divine, cockeyed genius assigned to your case decides to let some sort of wonderment be glimpsed, for just one moment through your efforts, then ‘Ole!’ And if not, do your dance anyhow. And ‘Ole!’ to you, nonetheless. I believe this and I feel that we must teach it. ‘Ole!’ to you, nonetheless,just for having the sheer human love and stubbornness to keep showing up. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Japanese photographer Hal, vacuumed packed these couples. They stayed without oxygen long enough for Hal to take three pictures.
Vargas Museum, UP Diliman
Because I was feeling artsy and have time to kill, I dropped by Vargas Museum (UP Diliman) to see what’s on exhibit.
Kiri Dalena’s work is still being installed (so will post about it later). Kiri is famous for her multimedia art. This is definitely exciting.
There’s also a traveling exhibit called “Nothing to Declare” - an international visual arts project featuring various artists all over the world. The key theme is migration, its different facets and impact. Couldn’t stay for long in the museum as I have a class and the enamel paint is unbearably strong (a Vargas staff told me they just finished installing some artworks). I will go back next week to properly “absorb” the exhibit. The Nothing to Declare exhibit will run until January 10, 2012.
