When I saw Bin’s idea of the virtual time capsule in Jason’s class this Monday, it reminded me that some designers and developers created virtual funeral artworks or products online, which is one of my ideas class.

Last Saturday and Sunday, the annual art festival “Nuit Balanche” (sleepless night, https://www.nuitblanchetaipei.info/) was held near Nangang MRT station in Taiwan, which is a worldwide art festival. This overnight festival comprised various types of artworks, including visual Art Work, art performance, interdisciplinary, and special events.

Before visiting the exhibitions, I didn’t have much expectation for this event because it did not display the afflatus well in the previous two years. This time, when I walked around the area, such an art exhibit offered me full immersion into its atmosphere with interesting formats. There were some impressive formulation and integration presentations…

Did you meet anyone who’s not an English native speaker but can speak even faster than locals? From my experience, Indians who I met generally speak fluently and fast. No matter who I met, as long as that person was an Indian, she/he would own excellent English abilities, including my previous colleague, phone service personnel, and my classmate, so people frequently mistake them for English natives. People could hardly expect that an Indian has terrible English skills. …
