theseus

had theseus chan as guest speaker in publication class today, a really inspiring and funny guy. i walked in late from printing and the first things to greet me were an impressive collection of WERK magazines laid out on the table. didn’t manage to take photos so here’re some from shift:

i totally love the way he experiment with different finishing and paper and non formats, making things imperfect and embracing the mistakes. he said that there is only one solution for perfection but unlimited possibilities for imperfection, it’s definitely a better way out and while everyone else flock towards the same goal for pretty and conventional goals, moving in the opposite direction can lead to surprising and amazing outcomes. theseus also suggested that we should step away from a project when we are stuck (i’m ALWAYS stuck midway), and move on to do something else, the next time we get back to it, we can see it with fresh eyes and new insights, or ideas could just pop up along the way. shall try this.. really.. fyp is giving me headaches, can’t seem to move on. anyway right now i’m really inspired to just start my own magazine. biannual maybe.
