    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 22/03/2019

    » Since his debut last July with the interactive wall Click Canvas at Yelo House, Natthakit "Kimbab" Kangsadansenanon has gone on to produce The Crown Pavilion, which he co-created with Conscious for Awakening Bangkok 2018 and Pixercise for Bhiraj Tower. The 26-year-old "creative technologist" revealed his latest work at Heineken 2.0 Barcade last weekend. A guest lecturer at several leading universities, Kimbab continues to produce interactive works that are an intersection of creativity, human experience technology and games. We catch up with him to ask about his unique creations and whether he still finds it difficult to explain what he does.

    People Who Do Worse Jobs Than You

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/03/2019

    » At the risk of sounding like a Debbie Downer (or should I say Sad Somchai), there may be days when we question whether we're doing well or enough at our jobs e.g. making a typo and struggling to write something relevant and fun on a weekly basis. And once that feeling takes over, you can console yourself by looking for people who're at worse at their jobs compared to you, automatically patting yourself on the back. The good news is that you don't have to look far -- and I've done that for you, dear reader. These examples should leave you thinking, "I'm not that bad."

    Thai-style Maths Problems

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 01/03/2019

    » How good are you with numbers, dear readers? Let's put you to the test in this mathematics quiz which -- and I can't state the following sentence strongly enough -- has not been inspired by any real-life incidents. (Cough cough cough, sorry almost choked there!) They are completely fictional, purely for your entertainment. The answers are at the end. No cheating!

    Crossword Puzzle: Thai PM Candidates Edition

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 22/02/2019

    » As the March 24 election nears, the number of opinion polls have increased. On Sunday, one poll in particular caught my eyes. Super Poll announced the result of a survey, which I unofficially translate to "The Public’s Concern During Election Season". What made this poll stand out is that when they asked people about their specs for PM candidates, they use cryptic descriptions such as "Man in his 50s. Former leader of this country with high position" and "Man in his 40s. Former exec. A political activist." Instead of simply using their actual names like other polls? They did that to avoid violating any election rules, perhaps.

    Let's Judge Candidates by Their Posters

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/02/2019

    » They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but I say, “Let’s judge candidates in the upcoming elections by their posters”. Their posters are their opportunity to make first impressions with the public and you can’t avoid them on our already hard-to-navigate sidewalks, anyway. Here are some of the most memorable posters in the upcoming election that I spotted on the street and online.

    » Living up to its name, Siam Discovery The Exploratorium continues to bring art and creativity to the city with their latest event "Siam Discovery: Discovery Street Culture". As part of the event, a core member of UFO907, noted graffiti crew from New York, is having his first exhibition titled "Zero To Hero" in Thailand, after two main exhibitions in Japan. We talked to the elusive artist about his long journey as graffiti artist, experience of creating art on the street and his quirky signature alien. The exhibition, which features several sculptures and many paintings created in a studio in Bangkok, runs until Feb 20 on the ground floor of Siam Discovery.
