1. Artist talk – Nguan

I have been a fan of Nguan’s Instagram photo style since a few years ago. Attending this artist talk allowed me to have a deeper insight into his thinking process. Before attending the talk, I had thought that he used filters in post-processing digital photos. However, he revealed that all photos were not post-processed at all – besides the square crop – but only overexposed 3-5 stops on his film camera. This revelation made me even more impressed with his photography style.

2. Red Dot Design Museum

It was interesting to see various wearable designs as well as household appliances transformed with technological advancements

3. Watercolour painting demonstration

The practitioner explained how her current research of how the eye perceives colour will be materialised as a painting. She demonstrated using acrylic gouache as her medium. Although she is trained to look at colours and its values by eye, she still uses her phone, to desaturate a photo taken of the colours she’s comparing, to double check the values of each colour.
