Worlds of Experience

(2019) Worlds of Experience – Revisited [Comics in Resin]

Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way.

Christopher Hitchens

The comeback of a humble typewriter

My medium of choice.

A treasured gift from my grandmother almost a decade ago. [Triumph Adler Tippa Script, 1960]

Why use a typewriter in a digital age?

The typewriter is a creative “altar” I come to daily to process my thoughts or ideas; sometimes meditative, always therapeutic.

The Daylight Compendium, p.5 [Mixed Media]

The Manifesto (image above) reads:

We assert our right to resist the Paradigm, to rebel against the Information Regime, to escape the Data Stream.

We strike a blow for self-reliance, privacy, and coherence against dependency, surveillance, and disintegration.

We affirm the written word and written thought against multimedia, multitasking, and the meme.

We choose the real over representation, the physical over the digital, the durable over the unsustainable, the self-sufficient over the efficient.

THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TYPEWRITTEN

Who am I?

I am an ardent researcher, seeker, and artist. As co-founder of Daylight Creative Therapies (a private practice) based in Singapore, I happen to do the job that I love: psychotherapy – principles which should be accessible to one and all who desire insight and change. I relish getting lost in good books (especially Fantasy/Sci-Fi) and use creative writing and/or art-making as a form of self-overcoming.

What is this for?

The Daylight Compendium is a personal project. A consolidated process of all my readings, inspirations, knowledge-digestion and written/visual reflections. I’ve allowed my fear (of not-good-enough) to hold this project back for almost 4 years. No more. In the words popularised by Seth Godin: Salto Mortale.

Here and now, I’m taking the dangerous leap!
