Isolation Continues

The COVID-19 has become a global pandemic, whether WHO has the guts to announce it or not! There is seriously no denying of it as it has caused serious local community outbreaks in South Korea, Japan, Iran, Italy, etc.

Life under isolation feels a bit suffocating. Admittedly, I’m not too social to begin with, but before the epidemic I would at least see my calligraphy class and church b&s weekly. It’s been around a month since I’ve last met them now. Maybe I’m not as antisocial as I thought I am.

Went back to the studio 3 times this past week. Living under isolation seems to have given me some unexpected quality time to dream up new ideas for work. With a good friend’s assurance to help, I’ve filled up an application for an upcoming tenant opportunity. If that works out, I’ll probably dedicate a significant amount of time and effort on that endeavor. In addition, I seem to be constantly picking up new ideas for digital fabrication, something I’ve been researching and experimenting since starting the studio in 2014. I’ve started experimenting with the studio tools once again and had gotten some preliminary positive results. I’ve also ordered some new tools to compliment the studio’s digital fabrication lineup.

The economy is still falling as the epidemic doesn’t seem to be dying anytime soon. I figured the best use of my isolated idling time during these slow days is to do more R&D and be prepared and ready when the economy picks up again, whenever that may be.

Oh God, please continue to help us through this global pandemic, let us be patient and not lose our faith and hope in You. 🙏🏻
