Proud of my friend Catrine Val who will present her extensive project (4 years in the making!) 'PHILOSOPHERS Women's Wisdom' at the #worldcongressofphilosophy in Beijing today. Her work, which shows her personal interpretation of different female thinkers across times and countries will be presented on the occasion of the International Association of Women Philosophers-Conference. I can still remember when I first met Catrine nearly two years ago at Patan Durbar Square in Nepal. She greeted me like we were friends already. ❤We were roomates during the wonderful #mixedmediaresidency in Patan, Nepal, organised by @photoktm and her unstoppable energy, work ethos and her work in itself haven't stopped being an inspiration since. #artistfriends#catrineval#inspiration#genderinclusivity#femalethinkers#womenphilosophers#performance#photography#throwback#photoktm2016#pktm2016#ilovephotokathmandu. By the way the next edition of Photo Kathmandu 2018 is only 60 days
#philosophers the Women's #wisdom
After working for four years on this heart beating project of my PHILOSOPHER it fall into #realty: nothing was ever come that close to my #artistic#journey: So delighted that this series will be shown at the #wcp#worldcongress of #philosophy in #beijing and the #iaph the international organisation of #womens philosophy.
This series celebrates the powerful presence of female thinkers from all parts of the world and throughout the ages by imagining their reappearance today. Individuality and the human relationshipwith nature in the modern world appear in a fresh light. The portraits of these philosophers offer a richer gender inclusive paradigm for contemporary art – displaying an electrifying moment when the personal becomes political in the world of wisdom.
I start with my #interpretation of #hannaharendt. A long journey. Men in Dark #times...

That's how thinking is normally pigeonholed: as a waste of time.
I don't support 'overthinking'. Yet I do support 'thinking'. The latter is a skill - Not a mere action; like the former.
By the same token, I do support meditation practises - because these activities improve my thinking process - or, at least, stop my overthinking process.
However, If I haven't learned yet how to think, I guess I am at least learning how to stop overthinking. I am not the best student, but I will pass.
If you want to think - and your biggest obstacle is overthinking - learn how to meditate. It's nice and odd.
