As an artist, Noraset Vaisayakul tackles both his creative work and a full time day job. Having worked in the construction field, his job requires him to live with other workers in a small house where the construction site lies. He describes the room as a very tight space: “I couldn’t breathe, let alone live there,” Vaisayakul recalls. After five days and nights of living in the room, it came to a surprise that he actually started to like it. It became a place for him to wind down, despite all the chaos and noise from the construction site. When it came time to leave, he was sad to leave the room. For the artist, this was a test of resilience and tolerance. It proved to him that one should adapt to a certain situation, rather than blaming the surroundings – this led to a level of appreciation and contentment for him and became the starting point of his philosophy. “Even the most horrible, ugliest picture; if you see it for 10 consecutive days, you would end up finding it decent-looking, if not beautiful,” He added, “There’s no higher or lower, you can adapt to the situation when it comes. Maybe if other people would realize that, the world would be a more peaceful place.”
