Sights & Sounds: Chia Amisola
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.
Chia Amisola is a Filipino designer and (ambient) digital artist. Their practice explores world making on the internet as a means to construct spaces, systems and tools for communal care. Across their websites, designs and writing, they investigate the possibility of a world where creation is synonymous with liberation.
I’ve loved discovering the various micro sites Chia has worked on while meandering through are.na rabbit holes. A few of my favourites so far have been:
