Meet us HALF way

Do you think HALF is enough or too little? HALF is already self-consisted but not accomplished yet; HALF is the midway, but the whole distance is still uncovered. HALF is just one side of a coin. HALF is the center of an hour. HALF is a disturbing feeling in between duality and instability. It’s the anxious atmosphere of Thu Van Tran’s art. Thu Van Tran is a Vietnamese artist who was born in Ho Chi Minh City in 1979 but later moved to France, a former metropolitan country of French Indochina. Psychological and physical effects of the Vietnam War and colonial regime influenced greatly the artist’s mindset. It’s always been HALF political, HALF conceptual.

“The hevea, the rubber tree, born out of a seed brought in and planted by the first French settlers who arrived in Vietnam in the early twentieth century. Symbol of a poisoned chalice considering the wealth and discord generated by its cultivation “ (Thu Van Tran)
From Green to Orange

The title refers to the colour-coded defoliants dropped on Vietnam by the U.S. military during the war.

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people think about concerns that they plainly don’t know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

  5. Hey there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    2. I also feel like maybe he tries to cover it up too the moment that he realizes, but I hope not that much. Well, at least I know he can't repress his ~feelings~ about Tigh — I feel like he and Tigh both realize just how MUCH they love each other in this episode was well. THEIR FRIENDSHIP IS SO MAIlACL.&Gt;3 <3 <3

  6. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
