Actually it just felt wrong to nitpick that particular part of the interview. The whole interview is awesome, very inspiring. If you have some free time I suggest to read it here.

'So I like the idea of a reductive process, I go through a process of subtraction until I capture the essence of what is left, what has to remain to be the essence of the piece, from a functional and aesthetic point of view. You work on all sorts of different layers in this reduction exercise to take away the excess and purify the product into what it becomes'

Michael Anastassiades, a lighting designer. Well said, Sir.

It's relentless

So how come it looks so beautiful?
How come the moon falls from the sky

I can see you
But I can never reach you

We human, we are part of the nature. The way we live, the way we die, the resemblance is uncanny.

We are at our brightest when death comes onto us. We are remembered, we are grieved and we are missed. Our light shines and impacts the whole universe.
After a while it goes dark, new lights are dimly lit, universe rearranges itself and everything goes normally, sans our presence.

Those around us are our universe. We might think they revolve around us, but truth is we are never, never bigger than the universe.

Got through the first three days of internship which included lots of walk to and from the office, sweating like crazy in the packed mikrolet, working random scrapes and some internet browsing in-between, tagging along mentor to a project meeting (and listening to lengthy conversation between the CM, architect and structure engineer while completely not understanding a thing), and listening to mentors brainstorming concept ideas until late night.
Still finding my feet, not firmly settled but it kinda went okay.
