philosphy

this website is under construction.

the creation of this website is inspired by laura maw's prompt to read a website through the lens of Joshua Comaroff and Ong Ker-Shing's theory of horrible architecture. it is an exercise (or rather a practice) in architecting an online space that is personal, meandering, tangential, non-linear, haunted, neostalgic, and unstuck in time. it is also inspired by david bryant copeland's Guidelines for Brutalist Web Design and the tension this creates when considering maw's thesis. i am artistically inspired by paradoxes and tension/friction between ideas.
