Michael Vincent Manalo
I have been inspired by how people interact with their televisions. I observed that through these machines they were able to escape to another world, to a place where they don’t have to think of their own problems, a place where they can get stories to share to people. TV is powerful. Ever since the machine got popular, people considered it as a portal of ideas, of lost emotions, of dreams which people can use to dream as well.

Upon observation, I noticed that most of the people tend to busy themselves so much that they forgot what it is to dream. What it is to feel the simple things around us, to breathe the fresh air, to watch the enthralling skies, the break of dawn and the entrance of dusk. We are constantly contained within our own cubicles of self-pity to earn a living, yes it is important but we must not take for granted the art that nature created for us, it’s free.
