Critical Practice

I try to get up early but can hardly stick to it for more than a day or two.

I'm not a fan of cooking but I do it as a proper ritual.

I keep my curtain open and lights off.

I vacuum every day to clean up my hair.

I'm most relaxed when reading Japanese manga.

I often walk an hour to see exhibitions in Mayfair.

I like to learn the names of plants as if I have more friends.

I tell cold jokes.

I'm energy efficient.

I don't look at my phone when I'm working on a laptop.

I'm always on the journey of learning new languages to better see the world.

I make plans in case I need something to follow.

I like reasoning.

I'm overly introspective.

I want a space where people also care about others.

I sleep with the radio on for half an hour.

I'm considering withdrawing this title of "artist" so that I can create beyond art.
