Dearest Jill — An open letter to Jill Robredo and colleagues in media

You are only 13,  and I feel terrible how people seem to keep forgetting this fact when they speculate and report about the events surrounding the plane crash. When they show photographs of you and your sisters with your faces buried in your hands, when they upload photographs of you sobbing into the arms of your classmates and teachers who have come to bring you comfort. These visuals do not help at all and only show a lack of respect for your private pain.

Daniel Stempfer's performance at MMCA Residency Goyang. Fun night! Great way to get rid of my headache and get a writing break. Also, quite the adventure, as I got left by the shuttle bus because I was waiting at the wrong place. Had to go back to get help, I had no idea where exactly I was and how to get to a subway stop. Goyang people are so nice about it though. Good thing Daniel took me to the bus stop that was quite far and got me on the right bus. A bit of a panic moment but overall quite funny. Sunday night adventure! Good news--no more headache! #art #performance #goyang #korea Jinsuk's old studio was turned into a VIP room. Lol. #art #goyang #korea Installation/ Performance by Koh Jaewook/ 고재욱. #art #goyang #korea Too bad most of the foreign artists have left the residency at this time. #art #goyang #korea Installation by Daniel Stempfer (left) and a performance (front). Nice way to end the evening. But my phone camera turned everything green. I don't know why. #art #goyang #korea Mirror works by Kim Shinyoung. Sometimes challenging to view because of my height. Lol. #art #goyang #korea
