About

sos_logoSigns of Seeing is all about the interaction between people, places, and images. From creation, to curation, to everyday encounters with visual culture, we aim to treat urban ‘seeing’ as a collective, interactive process. It is about bridging the gap between practice and critical thought to bring together artists, filmmakers, academics and critics in a dialogue about what we see in contemporary visual culture, and what it means to see in the first place.

  1. Hello! I do run the blog. As it isn’t really my personal blog but more of a space I am trying to create and curate, I figured it was best to take “I” out of the picture. Thanks for checking out SOS!

    • Oh okay. I love the blog! I actually want to be a freelance journalist living in Paris too. I’m not sure how to start freelancing, but I suppose you just start by starting. Any advice?
