I will be interviewing “invisible” leaders including curators, arts and cultural leaders, artists, arts managers, digital leaders, etc to investigate what it means to be “invisible” leaders.
Work very hard. Do something that I don’t yet know
Not to constrain by a vision
To change all the time. I am changing now.
It turned out that 6 weeks challenge was creating a new project every week – it was out of my control.
Project 1: I declared, I am invisible now. (a photography and leadership experiment)
Project 2: I am invisible now (a new publication on the role of ‘invisible’ leadership)
Project 3: Breakfast-chat (a podcast ongoing international project)
Project 4: 24 Hours in Dreams (a campaign in inventing the future of art and culture)
Project 5: live stream and performance experiment
Project 6: online studio and open source platform experiment
Li-E Chen’s quotes: -
“The biggest risk is to do something that no-one knows what and why you are doing.”
“Art is all about creating a situation, not any kind of situations, but a case of being open…”
“Your mind can change a situation, how? you change your mind.”
“I asked the leaders to become invisible and be a player rather than a leader.”
“Rejection gives me inspiration. When people reject me, I invent things or create situations out of rejection.”
“I will need to do more what I hate than what I love, because this will help me to do bigger things.”
“I don’t know if I have understood the word Vulnerability correctly but I am still learning what this means and how it relates to me and others. For me, it was the fear of facing rejection – but i became better dealing with rejection now. Whoever reject my ideas or proposals, rejections give me inspiration and motivation to invent and create.”
“My mind became ‘mouldy’, it was necessary in order to overcome challenges.”
“Working beyond your imagination.”
“After universities, I had been given many opportunities to have a career working in an well-known international 3D animation company, BBC producing, teaching in university, and becoming a business women. But I finally still choose to work in the art and want to challenge the possibilities of creating and discovering things beyond our imaginations.”
“Work hard. Don’t work too hard.”
“Do you want to understand the secrets of human’s mind? This is like asking I want to see your brain or skull.”
“Don’t constrain by a vision, or the ‘things’.
“Make it real”
