JUNE 4/WEDNESDAY, BAR OPENS 7 PM GREEN PAPAYA ART PROJECTS
The mythical urban super hero plies his usual route of the metro. Unlike the romance of anonymity he rather indulges in the transformative power of a second skin, proudly donned to pass off the dull routine of the ordinary. This one serves and protect by merely 'being' – devoted to the tantalizing possibility of flight. An act of will to choose to be unordinary, seen and ever present. Little packages lie along our memorized route, bleeding in the drab ash-gray and brown earth of the metro. Stop and look at the pavement, surprise beholds. Its time for a birthday party!
Another boisterous evening of monthly reading has passed last Wednesday as Mikael Co and Joel Toledo lounged the evening away for an all-nighter conversations on persona and voice, occasional playful banter, laughter and self-reflexive thought. Also, equally engaging was Mark Salvatus presentation of urban street interventions and play of Pilipinas Street Plan. Finally, the end has come and we are pleased to announce the selected applicants and proposals for much anticipated W.O.P Residency program! Tomorrow we shall kick off the W.O.P Residency by introducing the recipients and discuss with them further the details of their love proposals
