I am Minsoooo blah blah

The last song I listened to

“Cotard Syndrome” by Kim Oki, a Korean experimental jazz musician I really love. He traverses genres like jazz, spoken word poetry, and R&B so deftly.

The last series I watched

Selling Sunset... I have a huge soft spot for reality TV...

A book I’d really recommend

How Trees Think: Toward an Anthropology Beyond Human by Eduardo Kohn. It’s a fascinating ethnography on Ecuadorian indigenous communities that tries to pay delicate attention to ways of thinking and being beyond the human.

The last thing I bought and loved

The Minolta Riva 110 Zoom film camera. It’s really great at night time flash photography, and it’s been a joy to take silly photos with friends.

When I need to feel inspired

I step out into the city with my earphones playing a good dancey tune, bouncing around as I walk. Checking out exhibitions, pop-up craft markets, or visiting spaces crafted with community values that I admire (like wares infoshop or shrub). I like being alone in a crowd of people.

I have a collection of

Zines. I love how zines are such an intimate and fluid format, and I enjoy seeing how different people have stretched and reinterpreted the form. Some open out to be posters at the back, some are hand-sewn, some experiment with incorporating transparent paper. The topic and tone can also range from irreverent and fun to political or personal.

My hidden talent

Rollerblading. If I could, I would just rollerblade everywhere: gliding into brunch with friends, running all my errands on my rollerblades. I started rollerblading very young, around the age when people usually learn to cycle. So my cycling skills are very questionable but rollerblading I can do.

My ideal pet

A cat. Whenever I run into one on the streets I make sure to say hi.

I hope for a future that

Has curiosity and respect for all the spectrums and different ways of being, human and non-human.

I want to be remembered for

Trying my best, always in flux, open to changing and learning.

I am most looking forward to

Hopefully trying out free diving this year. I’ve been looking for a sport that pushes me to be meditative and in conversation with my body.
