One if my favorite art pop ups ever was @onedomeglobal when they visited San Francisco! I've always had a thing for installations where design and tech are integrated to create spatial experiences ✨ Yes, I’m still alive. Thanks for everyone checking in on me, just focusing on bigger and more important things in life than IG cause this doesn't pay my bills 😅 🎵 @kazylambist
