“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” With that said, I will try everything once, and if I like it, maybe twice, which is probably why I studied the art of communication design twice. Or try the same thing thrice, you know because “third time’s a charm”. What about the fourth time? I do not know yet, four seems a bit crowded. I love humour but have a huge problem with confidence, so the humour usually ends with a lot of ??? I love to create but I catch myself zoning under, into the abyss before deciding to create again, but I can assure you, I am motivated, give me whatever task and I will finish it, jack of all trades.
During the pandemic, we were stripped away off our understanding of what normalcy is and we felt as though our senses were threatened. With the mask, hiding half of our faces disrupting taste and the constant instruction to sanitise then clean our hands etc., the question I seek is what is our five senses now? One of the senses that I feel was affected, was touch.
No shaking each other hands when meeting, refrain yourself from touching door handles, use elbows instead. When touch becomes obsolete, do we develop a new sense?
Perhaps our hands might develop a sense of loneliness or independence.
Shameless is a social movement that defines being shameless as not only being brazen and bold but also about being brazen & bold during moments where silence seems like the most comfortable option. Our intention is to encourage you to look shame in the eye and not be defeated by its presence, instead walk over it and towards your purpose, while saying “Bye shame!”
The idea came after learning of my Bugis heritage and the Bugis-Makassar philosophy behind the word siri’, a term that means either shame or pride. The teachings of the past that have trickled into today’s society made me question if shame should threaten the way we live.
