      S P C | Sài Gòn, 'Continuous Partial Attention'

      The lead story for this issue is, 'Undefined,' by Michael Bridgett, Jr. His work features in other issues of S P C, including 'An Art of the Moment' and many more, as he was a contributing editor and early collaborator in helping DK find its footing towards the making of more and better S P C. 

      The struggles of creating new and original work, in the context of an always-on and always-distracted era of people who are more interested in 'how do you make a living, though?' than they are in, 'that is really really good,' let's face it, are embedded in this story. 'Undefined' was originally published as 'The Work of Art' in Jan. 2018 in S P C | Brussels, 'The Work of Art.'

      Here's a snippet:

      'Do I like being manipulated? I would say no… but I don’t like remembering birthdays either. Nor do I like keeping track of all my contacts, finding interesting things to read, and seeking out information on important global occurrences: apps do the invisible work that used to have to be done much more slowly and deliberately. That’s useful enough to me without even talking about the perverse pleasure I get from being seen and read and liked. Then, as a writer and artist, my own fortunes are tied up in the ecosystem too: I have to join the manipulation in order to eat.

      This issue's title is 'Continuous Partial Attention,' a term that was coined, according to Wikipedia, by Linda Stone


      Michael Bridgett, Jr.

      DK and Michael Bridgett, Jr. share an interest in ephemera---Mike makes music that amplifies a stage, for a moment, and we make, well, a weekly e-mag. Short shelf life. Short, and sweet.

      ‘I believe in the power of spontaneity and improvisation–the creation of something powerful in the moment,’ says Michael Bridgett, Jr., also known as Mike Dynamo, a multi-disciplinary artist based in Phnom Penh. ‘And possibly never to be seen again. It allows me to be fully present. When I perform, I draw on the energy of the crowd and the people around me, amplify it, and give that energy right back, ten-fold. It’s my superpower... In my writing, I strive for honesty, speaking about things that many don’t like to talk about. I want to make people think about their assumptions, because assumptions are a direct result of not being present and not engaging with what is in front of you. Of course, sometimes I just want to riff on video games, comics, and movies I love and analyze.’
