Our art installation project proposal, “The Yellow Stairways,” explores the possibilities of creating a harmonious public/outdoor environment that encourages both interaction and reflection among users. It intends to create a metaphorical atmosphere in which infinite imagination is the ultimate goal.
This Saturday, September 20, 2014, from 1-3pm, Saranont will join a panel discussion, “The Futures of Design(er),” at Thailand Innovation and Design Expo 2014 (TIDE2014) hosted by Industrial Designers Society of Thailand (IDS) and Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce (DITP.) The talk will take place at Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand. Come join if you plan to attend the expo this weekend.

Here is a video showing an interactive installation, Big Book, at Thai PBS Museum, which was completed in 2012.
Conceptually, the design of Big Book (or Monumental Dictionary) plays with a pre-perceived notion of traditional inscription stones with an intent to provoke a conversation about the relationship between trustworthiness of monumental objects and reliability of their content.
Mandalay, Myanmar (July 2014)
*We happened to visit Mandalay while a curfew was imposed. People were required to stay indoor between 10pm and 6am. During our stay we passed by this interesting shelter that seems to be someone’s home. I don’t know for sure if this could be counted as indoor but it sure reminds us of the cool avant-garde architecture concepts from the 60s.
The weather was perfect when we visited the southeastern part of Australia earlier this June – a nice break from the unusually hot temperature in Bangkok this summer. For this two-week trip we spent a good number of days in Sydney then traveled eight hours by train to Melbourne. We were definitely in love with these Australian cities for their walkability. The marks of the past can also be seen throughout the cities as if to remind everyone that, in order to move forward gracefully, learning and understanding your past is an unavoidable step.
Even though there was so much to see and do in the cities, we were still able to find time to get out and visited several National Parks, such as, Blue Mountains, Port Stephens, The Otway and Great Ocean Road, and, lastly, The Grampians. The amazing diversities and richness of flora and fauna of Australia made us wish we had planned to stay longer.
