As Pio Abad arrives in the Philippines for his 6 week research trip, he starts his online residency with a proposal for the most dominant structures of the Manila cityscape.
So many nonreasonable things have happened to me since I have been in the Philippines. I no longer try to make them all fit a reasonable, linear context. I see things, notice them the way you do in dreams. Here, the waking world and the dream world have many things in common. The line between the two is not abrupt and definitive.
