island6, a gallery produces new media artwork featuring the use of LED with cutting edge style, just had another exhibition named Urban Operandi. I went to their opening event which was filled with fashionistas and art enthusiasts. This atmosphere reminded me of the previous greatly successful Art Walk 2013 in which people who fond of art and lifestyle mingle together and have a blast.
A new healthy approach to life, as recommended by leading figures in the health and well being field, is to adopt a business method to your emotional welfare. For anyone who has ever worked in Hospitality, the Food & Beverage field, this method will come as no surprise. Company policy will always allow for breakages, spillages and wastage and after you have cashed up, write them off and move on with tomorrow’s business. Appropriating this system into your lifestyle can take many forms. E.g. When next you feel the proverbial sledgehammer of a complete c*nt smashing your nerves to bits through his rude behaviour or annoying habits. When next you feel someone crushing your spirit through his vindictive carriage or when your heart is demolished by some devastatingly handsome Lothario. First: Take stock. Second: Count your losses and your blessings. Thirdly: If you’re at a loss, take heart as there’s always tomorrow. And lastly: Write it off as a breakage/spillage/wastage and chalk it down to an experience earned, a lesson learned and a life lived.
Artwork: "The Place In Between" （介於之間）
I adore tentatively tip-toeing that thin line between sleep and wakefulness. Longing for that point at which the world of shapes and forms melts away to be replaced by an enchanted world of which I alone am architect, legislator and solitary inhabitant. Blissfully warding off the seductions of deep sleep I remain non-committal, between states, and semi-conscious of my own imagined mastery. It is the extension of this condition for which I yearn; it's infiltration, liberation, of my waking life. As I ascend to this twilight realm of restlessness that persistent obstacle of physicality is overcome, and ceases its relentless encroachment upon my mind. I float amongst grey-scale clouds and wander amidst dreamscapes of illusory worlds. All is I, I am all. It is transience, it is instability, and it is delicious.

Hi,So I saw your profile on HKLoveOnline, you look like you’re on my wavelength. Wanna get together and get down sometime? I’m defo feeling your vibe. A little bit bout me, I’m young, fun and always up for a good time. Want to have a good time with me? We could head to Wan Chai, hit a few bars, get a little crazy… Hows about it big guy? Don’t let my profile turn you off, I’m not always so hairy. Also the lighting was quite dodgy, trust me I look much better in person and after a few drinks, who cares anyway? So get in touch… : )

JFF did you have a look at the new clipboards? TTYL. TGIF. Mr. Miller
In their latest exhibition the electronic art collective island6 explores the human response to the living, breathing and pulsating city. The booming megalopolises of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong provide the perfect testing grounds to trace the human reality of this new existence. As the cities of China march ceaselessly forwards in realization of an unraveling economic, political and cultural future the nature of the metropolis transforms. Within this environment new potentialities are carved out for man. Baudelaire’s painters of modern life, expositors of urban ‘flanerie’ are reborn and revamped under a cosmopolitan, yet curiously Chinese, guise. The temptations remain, to resist as imagined encroaching tendrils of the metropolis, and of new-age technology, wind themselves around our souls. But perhaps it should be with relief that we let our eyes glaze over a little, let the nervous energy drain from our tired bodies, and give ourselves to the soporific to and fro of the pulse of the city.
You can find all the above artworks here.
