陳楚 (Mew Osker)

Just stating some that I appreciate more.. ..What’s the single most valuable lesson you’ve learned in your professional life?"If you want something done, do it yourself" man, that’s a big lesson 🙂 That luck ist nothing you can learn. That procrastination isn’t delaying your decision, it’s just deciding to do fuck all til it’s too late to make the decision yourself. When you ask, you get the answer. I learned not to ask sometimes:) That is someone is good at something they don’t have to tell you! Never hire a friend…there is no professional life. Is not only a matter of skills but public relations. If you re good at something, never do it for free. it’s a box of chocolates…Be a great listener, with a good filter. Get close your friends, but more close your enemies, and it doesn’t mean you will make a war but knowing its the powerful weapon and the only thing that can content it. Love the one you’re with. If it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense. That sometimes it is better to shut up because you’d only talk yourself into trouble. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know! (unfortunately) Take every opportunity that is offered to you. Improve yourself by 5% every day. if u don’t wanna be hurt don’t hurt others. Be who you are and not apologise for being yourself and take others for being themselves whether you like it or not! Love your family and friends who you can count on and who are there for you. Work hard and try your best and strive for better which may take a while and have patience :-)that profession is just a part of life.. not Life itself 🙂 stop talking about it and just do it!! The most important things in life are not things.. surround yourself with people that are smarter than you are. its Not how Good you are ,its how Good you want to be ! keep your personal business to yourself no matter what. That there are still slaves today but most do not realize that they’re slave because the slave master is there television set.. The professional life is an illusion. it’s harder to say no that it is to say yes – get over it and get in control. Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life. Looking at the clock won’t get you to where you wanna be any faster! what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger… and keep a sense of humor … Your parents always warn you about the bad people in life but they never tell you about the boring ones! The majority of people at work have no passion for what they do so use that to your advantage but also be wary that they will think with their ass rather than their head. Staying neutral. As tempting as it is to chime in while trashing superiors, just smile nod and move on. If those complainers can freely talk about the boss, no telling what they’ll do when the subject of ‘you’ comes up. It helps prevent burning bridges all around. It’s all about setting expectations. to pay attention and learn something new every time. Accept yourself as you are and live like you’re supposed to live, that is freedom. Be like a duck. Remain calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath. if you have issues with others its probably you ! Empathy can turn into negative thing to yourself so watch out. Do what you think is correct nevermind the rest. Integrity, passion, relationships and teamwork. Work smarter, not harder. Also, attitude is everything…a smile goes a long way! Less is more. I don’t need a friend to be with you. Have Conviction, always be in Contention and avoid Contraband. When you’re good at what you do the best thing you can do is get better. You make a mistake,don’t apologise,come up with a solution! Smile at people when you have the chance. You never know what that person is going through. An act that takes little effort, but can have a huge effect. never trust someone until you know their angle. Get feedback. Have insight. It’s just business. Detail is everything. Knowledge is power, get educated. watch out for the quiet ones. perception is reality. Assume nothing. Never count your money until it is in your bank account. Trust but verify. If they can’t meet your due diligence.. Walk away politely. Always look like you’ve been there and done that..Why work for someone else, when you can work for yourself. Your only on this earth for a very short time so make the most of every opportunity and love unconditionally. Stay true to yourself and don’t water down your values or beliefs for an easy life. Oh yeah and don’t waste your time worrying about failing, or trying to impress others. Learn to manage expectations. Know the difference between working hard and working smart. Money v Love esp since the recession – ‘Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life’ – Confucius You have to be yourself, to be someone. be organized and write down everything. if you don’t, you may forget something very important. being organized for me is a half of work done. Always protect your creations. And always make the client sign what he validates with you. Never underestimate the changing mood of a client. You have two ears and one mouth. To be used in proportion. You cant be all things to all people. You end up meaning very little to anyone. Stay unique. The same "you" will never walk the planet again. Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t accept more work than you can handle. Attitude and enthusiasm makes the difference. Have the courage to say yes and follow your passion. Never show all your cards. You have never learnt all there is to know, always be thirsty for more knowledge and understanding and accept the things you cannot change, change the things you can and be wise enough to know the difference. Use these philosophies in your professional life towards both your work and the people you work with! And never forget that your family is more important than dollars signs! (sorry, it’s more than one single answer 😉


The Gowanus Ballroom – An Alternative Art Space in Brooklyn New York


The Gowanus Ballroom – An Alternative Art Space in Brooklyn New York

TO THE STARS ON THE WINGS OF AN EEL offers a chance to explore the urban unconscious of the Gowanus, to reimagine the past, decipher the present, and envision possible futures. Artists working in the neighborhood––some long-time fixtures, others recent arrivals––are breathing new life into a once stagnant and decaying quarter.

Join us as we transform the Gowanus Ballroom, itself a former steel mill dating to the nineteenth century, re-mapping psychogeographies and investigating mysteries of the canal and surrounding areas. By exploring real and imagined tales of the past, we pursue today’s dreams and become the myth-makers of tomorrow.
