Everything You Ever Wanted Is Right Here. 2012
Today we speak to Dawn Ng to find out what she thinks and her new work which has never failed to be imaginative and playful.
Yanda: What do you do first when you get up in the morning?
Dawn: Brush my teeth.
What daily routines you cannot do without?
Funny enough, none.
What’s your definition of happiness?
What are the things that keep you sane?
I actively avoid them. I think the things that make you sane have a way of making you dull.
How do you deal with expectation and hope then?
Whose – mine or other people’s? I’m completely devoted to the former and to be honest I can’t care less about the latter.
How has knowing to appreciate art and design affect the way you live?
It makes me a keen observer.
How has working for others and yourself shaped you so far?
Working for others trains me to listen, working for myself trains me to shut it all off.
Do you think working without restrictions or working for yourself can be the hardest thing to do?
It takes discipline.
Your work has shown a different medium each time. How do you keep educating yourself?
By being relentlessly curious.
Any heroes? What do you admire about them?
They are all mad-hatters. I love madness in people. It is the only true liberating and empowering force in this world.
