Sights & Sounds: Alex Tan
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the journal will come at least twice a month.
Sorry this is coming a bit late, I’m currently in the air trying to push this live using American Airlines in flight WiFi. One day it will be fast, but today it is not.
I blew through my camera roll and populated one image from every month in 2022, so here’s a little time capsule of my year.
Thanks for all the kind words over the last couple weeks surrounding this project. It actually makes me emotional sometimes. I’m drafting one last Common Discourse then we’re out until February. ✌🏼
This is my favorite album of all time.
Thanks for consuming!
