Sights & Sounds: Miaoye Que
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.
Miaoye Que is a Chinese-born, Brooklyn-based cultural worker who weaves text with technology. They are currently at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, busy cultivating a creative practice that is informed by their whims and obsessions.
Miaoye and I have been mutuals on are.na for a while, and had the opportunity to connect in person in London last summer, and in New York earlier this year. I love how infectious their curiosity and love for life is. Some of my favourite projects they’ve worked on, that I often revisit are: “Imagine If” Poem and reclaiming departures. And most recently, a site they built as part of their NYU programme, Thesis Manifesto.
Here’s what they shared with us this week.
