Siamese Rat x Astraberry x IndigoElix for !ha? 5.0

Siamese Rat x Astraberry x IndigoElix To have Indigo’s drawings and doodles on the wall reminded us of how we started to explore the creative process. Observing him as he builds this own world of ideas in its crudest and rawest form, reminds us that children have the innate sense of creative expression in any form that they are comfortable. We cannot help but be happy to realize that we were once kids who are just bold and daring to create something at the surge of the moment. Seeing the raw and “undisciplined” techniques revealed to us how swift imagination can run. Collaborating with our son, allowed us to be a “kid” again.  Some families keep a record of their kid’s heights every year on a door post or wall. We are keeping these drawings, and even if they will be painted over, they will forever be “embedded” in these walls.

!ha? 5.0 : undo/redo/nonstop

 1.after 8 years we are doing this year's !ha? 5.0 with a theme undo/redo/nonstop. You are free to interpret the theme but don't overthink on it.  2. This year because of the pandemic we are extending the project to more than a week. So from Nov.11 it would culminate on November 30, 2020. We are also asking the participants to observe social distancing and safety protocols as prescribed by the health professionals. 3. We are welcoming participants from all walks of life. Although it might be totally impossible but we are trying to blur the walls of national boundary, ethnicities, regionalism, sexual orientation, generation gap and other border separations while maintaining our creativity, explorations and sense of humanity. 4. The internet is a great tool for collaboration.

An art festival was brewing in Cebu and the newly-formed graffiti crew called UBEC ("Cebu" backwards) was looking at it from a distance. Its members shared the same sentiments: They can't afford the art fest's registration fee and they were wary of the attitudes of the artists in attendance. Upon these, UBEC made a street art fest that lasted a week. They first referred to it as
