guest editor: Fresco Sam-Sin
Meet Fresco Sam-Sin, guest-editor for Intervention 02: Origins. Fresco Sam-Sin is the founder and editor-in-chief of ThingsThatTalk.net, a platform that explores humanities through the life of objects. Fresco is research associate at the Research Centre for Material Culture and the Institute of Area Studies at Leiden University. It was through his teaching and research about the Manchu empire (1636-1912) that he started to realize how the life of objects deserves its own voice in our reading of human experience. Material and objects that humans wear have his special interest, because they are literally close to who one is, and to who others perceive them to be.
