Blog Alert: Synaptic Stimuli

I just recently came across Synaptic Stimuli, a blog with the all-too-appropriate tagline of Transmissions of Consciousness and States of Being. In addition to that, they just generally have very amazing, life-affirming content that makes you appreciate all of the complexities and possibilities of nature and human capability. They also have some of the best blog titles around, and I was pretty much blown away by everything I saw on the site. Here are some of my recent favorites, from their recent posts.

Imaginings of future selves in exoplanetary dreamscapes.

In a world made of strings we are designers of expression.

We are here to soften the edges of life for each other.

Vee Hua 華婷婷 (they/them) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. Much of their work unifies their metaphysical interests with their belief that art can positively transform the self and society. They are the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE, Interim Managing Editor of South Seattle Emerald, and Co-Chair of the Seattle Arts Commission. They also previously served as the Executive Director of the interdisciplinary community hub, Northwest Film Forum, where they played a key role in making the space more welcoming and accessible for diverse audiences.

Vee has two narrative short films. Searching Skies (2017) touches on Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States; with it, they helped co-organize The Seventh Art Stand, a national film and civil rights discussion series against Islamophobia. Reckless Spirits (2022) is a metaphysical, multi-lingual POC buddy comedy for a bleak new era, in anticipation of a feature-length project.

Vee is passionate about cultural space, the environment, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures. They also regularly share observational human stories through their storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE!, and are pursuing a Master’s in Tribal Resource and Environmental Stewardship under the Native American Studies Department at the University of Minnesota.
