Profile Information

something that could be confusing if not mentioned

My location on this profile states my home in the Philippines, but I am currently in London, UK.

My mother is the cultural officer at the Philippine Embassy here in London and she was forwarded an email from Gary McLeod introducing this project. She forwarded it to me, saying something about a photography project and LCC, which she knows is associated to me somehow. She was right: I am currently doing a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Wimbledon College of Art. Both colleges are part of the University of the Arts, London.

I read the email and explored this "ship". This ship's pretty amazing. I've seen projects like this - recreating photos of a different era - before, but never on such a large scale and with so much historic value!

It is so rare that the Philippines is part of something like this. I've come across a few people here in London who didn't even know if the Philippines was a country. Not to mention that we - my friends back at home and I - have been wanting to collaborate on something for a really long time... but never found time to build something up from scratch. So this is a big deal. Excitement all around. Cross-continental all around.

For some reason, I held back joining myself, thinking that I didn't have any photographs to contribute. I really wish I did. I only have photos of Manila and Cebu from 2008. But talking about the unidentifiable, mysterious canal with Kathy tonight (through the miracle that is the Internet) has finally driven me to hop on, officially.

That was long, and I realize I just explained a little incessantly, but the point is, I've filled in my location as such because I thought it would be relevant to this project (though someone please correct me if I'm wrong; if this defies some sort of demographic for this study in social networking please let me know!). And I will be participating mainly with the crew that represents the Philippines, as much as I can... And get even a little taste of home while on a foreign voyage myself.

Manila Photo trip, 1

Posted on November 27, 2010 at 7:30am 9 Comments

keeping up with the group via wondering if this will work; if it does, it'll be amazing.

currently waiting on an icon to appear on the lands of the Philippines, because that will be Kathy! no one else has made a public trip fromthe manila area, so no icons can be seen. makes the job of finding her username easy, too.

i should be able to see the trip…

Hi Adrienne,

I'm glad that you are enjoying Wimbledon. Courses are much more structured now than they were when I studied there!

Even though you are not in your home country, as you are finding, there are ways and means to help. I think its great that you maintain communication with the team and participating at a distance. With your experience of being abroad, you bring a different perspective :)

Will you be following the team with GPS/GE?

Welcome aboard Adrienne!

Thanks for joining up! You might be glad to know that I actually did my BA in Fine Art at Wimbledon before it was part of UAL. Its a very good place to do a Foundation Dip.

Thank you Adi for finally joining us. The conversation this nightmorn and the past couple of days in our parallel creative journeys have proved to be worthwhile. I can't wait for more discovery with you as always. Here's to Zeteo. :)
