what would Jeff Buckley do

I am bound to infinitely stare at this blank note given by a former lover who refused to tell me the meaning of such clean and crisp white paper crumpled by my frustration to interpret its ghostly writing. Maybe Jeff Buckley will sing me the answer, but then again I can’t rely too much on a dead guy.. . The message just like Mr. Buckley passed away even before I’ve come to know of its existence. ‘Oh, and the sting shall cease’, i can hear thy lover say.. .

the Paper Flight exhibit

           We all have that one childhood memory of making paper planes, even annoying our teachers by flying them in class. But gone are the days when you compared paper planes with friends and attempting to ‘ out-fly’ each other by making it fly higher or last longer in the air. Today, paper planes are replaced with those high-tech gadgets that I’ve always find hard to get acquainted with, and the friends? Already mapped all over the globe. So how do we bring back those good ol’ days? That exactly is the main goal of the exhibit. So we asked our friends from all over (unfortunately, we couldn’t find a contact from the Arctic or Antarctica) to take us with them to their place by taking photos of interesting spots in their area with an object that would represent us – this is where the paper planes come in.. .

          The diversity in the photos is just raddd, from the differently made paperplanes (the Origami paperplanes from Japan are a fave!) to the unusual spots where the photos were taken. It just shows that we’ve got a bunch of creative friends! And we couldn’t thank them enough for the time that they took from their busy lives to participate in this little project of ours. This exhibit is for them and by them, it is their exhibit, we are just the fortunate ones to execute it.

Setting up the exhibit - photos and other materials were everywhere, chocolates anyone?

         All the love to our contributors, like I said this exhibit is by all of you and we just merely executed it. We hope this wouldn’t be the last and you won’t get tired of participating in our little projects. I’m already racking my brains for the next one, I’m sure another great idea will pop out soon. Let’s just all cross our fingers for next year.. .

Peace, Love & some RakEnRoll,
