WHAT I'M ABOUT

M A R T I A L   A R T S

I have practiced, taught and studied the art of Hapkido for the better part of 5 years. The sport has been a key influence on a lot of  my life, including my work, how I live my life, and the things I’m interested in; including the media. Maybe I’ll speak more of this in the future, but for now, here is a GIF of  me getting my arse handed to me at a tournament a couple of years back  :/

ps I’ll be going to Korea in the coming months so keep posted on this sick new blog for some insights on that!

I am a self-taught, self-proclaimed photographer who bought a SLR camera and made an Instagram account a while ago. Checkout some of my photos bellow.

and if your feeling super generous follow my insta + fb page 😉 (I haven’t touched these in ages so don’t judge)

It’s a love/hate relationship.

I love how the media works, how it advances and consequently how it has the power to change the way we live our lives, how we think and how quickly we can communicate ideas and information with one another. Because of the media, I’m able to find stuff I’m interested in and share it with everyone. For example

However I think it’s important that we think cautiously about the media and are constantly aware of the power it has to manipulate our perception of people and their ideas.

This is something I’d like to delve further into and is the reason I am currently studying Communications and Media.

 

My name is Kendal George Louis, I’m first year student at the university of Wollongong looking to explore my interests of art, music, photography, design, fashion, and all things media. This first week has been pretty bloody good and so far has been filled mainly with memes, Twitter, Barnaby Joyce, blogs and other things similar. Who knows what this blog will become; I guess you will have to stick around and see…
