FLUIDITY
This Week From The Editor

The conflict between fixity and fluidity exists within us all—but what emerges in the end? A dot, a line, a form that curves into an alchemical reflection of the creator’s being.

Non-linear, forgiving, epiphanic

But what constitutes creative fluidity? Is it going back to our primordial roots, of being one with nature, through creative endeavours? Is it dismantling labels, and embarking on an unprecedented journey spelling freedom?

This week’s issue embodies the spirited dance between norms and uninhibitions—fluid, and intentional—from the fluxional, AI-generated installation by Refik Anadol, to an undulating, spatiotemporal retail space by Vishal Dar, the boundaries and constructs of what articulate modern architecture, design, and arts are being delightfully provoked, blurred, and eagerly overlooked.
