Hide and Seek by Dream the Combine: An Industrial Playground at MoMA PS1

Even Though I’ve spent most of summer 2018 in temporary disability recovering from my shoulder surgery. Lately, I’ve been keeping myself busy. Catching up on all the fun outdoor activities I wasn’t able to get around to at the beginning of the season.

Hide & Seek by Dream the Combine: An Industrial Playground at MoMA PS1 Due to my slow living recommendation from my surgeon I’ve been living a leisurely and mindful summer. Enjoying moments of solitude outdoor with nature, architecture and site-specific presentations. To commence my summer’s 2018 wanderlust adventures I visited MoMA PS1. New York City’s Museum of Modern Art’s annex in Long Island City, Queens. I was eager to experience Hide and Seek. The 2018 winner of the Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1’ annual Young Architects Program. Continue Reading…

Memories from The Armory Show 2018 Edition

Mary Sibande, A Reversed Retrogress Scene 1, 2013

Hey art lovers, sorry for falling off the blogosphere. I hope you were keeping up with my flâneuse adventures via my Instagram feed and stories. Let’s start back up with some inspiring Memories from The Armory Show 2018 Edition. After a very overwhelming winter season filled with endless school assignments and too many shoulder dislocations, I was looking forward to my summer break with much anticipation. But, my summer plans were slightly diverted with the news that I had a torn labrum and needed shoulder surgery (sight). I wasn’t surprised though, the last two dislocations were on a freakish spectrum. To cut the story short I’ve spent my summer recovering from surgery. Wore a sling for a month, have been going to PT twice a week, and now, my right arm is too gentle to do much with. Not even swing my arm ala Mary Sibande’s A Reversed Retrogress Scene 1 (The Purple Shall Govern) Spotted at The Armory Show 2018 Edition.

Governors Island: Gotham’s Natural Oasis

Governors Island: Gotham's Natural Oasis Hey Wanderlusters! I’m sorry for the long hiatus. If you follow me on social media you probably already know how I’ve been spending my days since school started. I’m a busy fashion design student at the Fashion Institute of Technology, doing my best to juggle a freelance position in sales, endless school projects, and blogging. Unfortunately fashion design academics leave me with little time for nurturing my Wanderlust. These days I spend most of my times under fluorescent lighting. Talk about moody vibes all the time.

Governors Island: Gotham's Natural Oasis

The free times I get I’d much rather spend it outdoors with Mother Nature’s offsprings in the natural light. Governors Island: Gotham’s Natural Oasis in the New York City harbor remains my beloved leisure spot for outdoor contemplation and relaxation. Did you get to quench your nature driven wanderlust spirit with a visit to the island this season? For the first time since its opening, the not so secret ice-cream cone-shaped island extended their 2017 season till  Halloween. The season’s farewell held a full list of events ideal for all ages that concluded on October 31st. I didn’t get to live the Spooky experience because I was home working on midterm projects and studying for exams. But, I did get to go before right before the end of the season’s goodbye. Follow along as I stroll along the memorable areas of Governors Island. An island built for the future.  Continue Reading…
