Regrets always comes last. There are things I wished I had done before with the time I had. Now I'm stuck with all the uncertainties and feeling that time is pressuring me, although it is not. Time is the only thing that's stable and running at the same pace as it did before. It's just us -- by us, I mean me -- that cannot keep up with it. It's either I'm a step behind or getting ahead of myself, but I rarely goes hand in hand with time. I said time is mean, time is flying on a jet plane, but the fact is, I walk instead of run when I'm chasing time. Time and I were friends, but I didn't know the meaning of friendship, and now… time is leaving me.
"People everywhere ponder the meaning of life, but they can't agree on the answer. If we really want to find what matters in this life, we will consider eternity. What matters most is what matters in eternity. And what matters in eternity is not income, or friendship, or fame, or pleasure. Those things are fine in themselves. But they will not outlast death." - Judah Smith
Every year a world-class architect designs an installation outside the Serpentine Gallery to be viewed and used by public, for free. The latter is very important because everybody loves free stuff :) And I think it is one of the aspects I will miss the most about London because this kind of creativity have so much thought put into it even though it comes for free and it is so great to see such things to inspire you. Although ideas can come from anywhere, I just really love to see contemporary sculptures or art that intrigues the mind and Serpentine Pavilion is just the 'it' thing. Although I wished I had known about this the first time I arrived in London 4 years back, I was lucky enough to visit the Pavilion 2 years in a row.
"Over the past 15 years the Serpentine Pavilion has become an international site for architectural experimentation, presenting inspirational temporary structures by some of the world's greatest architects. A much-anticipated landmark in London each summer, the Pavilion is one of the top-ten most visited architectural and design exhibitions in the world."
If I have learnt something from my third year so far, is not to be too precious about my work. Because new ideas will always come. So if there is something to show, show all of it now. Don't wait 'til later, when maybe, somebody else will present the ideas you wait to present. So it was wrong for me to wait to share these pictures from one and a half years back, in an autumn day in London, a grey scenery of Southbank to be exact.
