Vanillawork station : for an Interview with Gaia Messerklinger

Walk February 8, 2015

In early January I was contacted by Italian actress and producer Gaia Messerklinger to join her fashion documentary journey called ‘Be Cool Around the World’ project, which she would travel 10 metropolitans in Asia to observe and talk with what’s cool and what’s fashionable right there. I have an appointment with Gaia on January 31, just two days after I moved back from London. I don’t have a proper studio at home so I borrow my friend’s space to set up this work station as a background and to show her what’s on my mind. Gaia arrived at 2PM, she’s Italian, tall, with beautiful nose and eyes. In fact, she  is a very fun, lively woman whose beauty and gesture can help me relax. We talked about how Asian root and being in Bangkok influences my work. I think the answer is simple, spirituality, is always the essence of my conceptual process. Also, some social movements and thoughts can have a huge impact as I draw many inspirations from books I read, from Zen philosophy to George orwell’s Animal Farm.

I found this quote in a free Dutch magazine I picked up randomly, love it so much that I need to tear out and put it on the board. Made me think of the visible and invisible quality of thoughts and things and how abstract life is 🙂
