Seoul Palace Observe

Image
We are being observed
Reputation increased through each directed gaze
To be honest
To be treated favourably

Protect your identifiable self
Do not display selfishness
Do not display impulsivity
Be known for your co-operative behaviour


Palace Costume
The opportunity to be more of yourself To think, behave and dress differently  Play the role to the situation
Put on a costume  Switch roles Be in the situation








Seoul Art Glitter

Image
Seoul Contemporary Art
Mirroring society Rethinking the ordinary Giving representation to change
Whilst re-constructing meaning Having curious dialogue  Inquiring and learning


Endless brainstorms
Perfectionism
Procrastination
Meaningless distraction

Stop listening to the traffic
Show up
Be present
Make decisions
And commit









Seoul Jongno-gu

Image
When you meet do you wonder what everyone else is thinking?
At what moment do you decide to engage and actively participate?

Gaining
Complaining
Making
Fulfilling

It’s about being part of them
Searching for strong relationships
Bonding together


Seoul Jongno Lane

Avoiding and repositioning
Placing yourself as the endpoint
Narrow the path to lessen collisions
The theory, principles and data of inclusion
There is no need to go faster
There is no need to get there sooner
The fault of dis-regarding the environment







Hong Kong Scraper

Image
Hong Kong Scraper

They fell from the heavens
As we reach up to the heavens
Establishing this sense of vertigo
From an accumulation of past, present and future decisions

Whereby
Establishing the primacy for creators
Establishing the cold and impersonal social divisions
Establishing the paranoia, the social problems and the consumption needs

To never
Realize control of identity




Hong Kong Futures

Plant covered car-free
Interconnected rather than a grid

Pedestrian as priority
Electro cycles, velomotors, Segways
Kill the car

Create unique new urban experiences
Post modern


When did we board? Why do we approach with apprehension?
The melancholy of many Sensing the millions who have traversed Back and forward To and fro
Grateful to be part of This social contract Passing of time What has been done Following the passage of others
Acceptance The marks on my face after sleeping Have I the patience to return?










Gold Room Hong Kong

Image
Our worth in gold
Our symbolic worth
Our realisation
Our capacity to reflect

Our need for a showcase
Our need for surprise
Our need to embellish
Our guild to build faith


I want to be successful,  I want to achieve I want to triumph
Gather in my wealth and prestige Feel my power as that of the sun
My higher ideals My enlightenment
Loath my luxury and material wealth Despise my expensive habits and exclusive mannerisms
Inspired by Murakami






Ba Na Hills Fingers Vietnam

Image
Fingers of Da Nang

Fingers of God
Buddha's Rays
Jacob's Ladder

There is a science
An optical illusion
The meanings appear to diverge
Which lord speaks with you
Their mandate from heaven
In the reflective shadows
Secured in a higher realm



In Protection
Doing what we are told
Just do your best
Sleep, breath & eat-in readiness for work
For your personal conversion
To the services you employ
In their protection
In illness
Over the decades
At what age do you stop smiling?


This hand protects This hand holds a special place of honour Sheep to the right and goats to the left A helping hand This hand is at work





Hue Imperial Palace

Image
A throne for a unified Vietnam
A walled citadel
A ringing moat
Faced towards the Huong River (Perfume River)
Courtyards, gardens, pavilions and palaces
The seat of power
Until the French invaded

A most lucrative colonial possession
Mission civilisatrice
Profit and economic exploitation











Hoi An to My Son

Image
The kings of Champa
A place for worship and sacrifice
Without windows
A place for darkness
Great and powerful
Fanciful mysterious beauty











U Turn Hoi An

Image
45 million+ motorbikes
To the regulated everything is unpredictable
The survival need is to be predictable
In every move you make
Anticipating the traffic is the task
Become part of the flow
No sudden movements








Hoi An River Edge

Image
16th century heritage
A peaceful meeting place
Exceptionally well-preserved
Bus, taxi, plane
Throngs of tourists descend
Common sense rules









Marble Mountains Vietnam

Image
The river is wide
The sea is big
Sharp mountains touch the sky
They stop the clouds
Inside there is a sanctuary
Where beauty is carved
