I was puttering around some academic journals while waiting for software to finish downloading when I found this little gem: Meaning-Making Exercise Using Images and Soundscape: The Case of San Pedro Street, Davao City, Philippines. The article is about a multimedia exhibit that the two authors put together, documenting life in San Pedro, the former(?) center of Davao City. Scrolling through the text, I was amused to find my comment and doodle among the exhibits they had. This dates the exhibit to around 2013-2014. I am amused.
