Dayday Key, Me, 祁天天 am an artist born in Baoshan, Yunnan, China, around 7pm 7-7-1994.
I lived in many cities along the way, couple of years here and there. Changning, Baoshan, Kunming, Foshan, Detroit, Pasadena, Dali.
Sometimes culture shock, sometimes linguistic challenges, but luckily I never got home sick after leaving Baoshan, my home is on my back.
I don't belong to anywhere or anyone anymore.
It was quite a one-bedroom apartment where I lived in Detroit with Al, Chas, Mad, and a rescued kitty Alphonse. Alphonse went to war with chainsmoker Mad while Chas had a LED party and Al was constantly trying to meditate.
It was chaos, places, people and time. They are immovable objects that squash me into different shapes, everyday, every moment. At the end I become mostly fluid.
I learned to meditate, to hypnotize, jump between frequencies, like nothing I can't do but nothing. I see thing into people most people don't. I see things behind things' appearance, into their structures below the softness. Everyone is trying, such sad but also a miracle.
