Hi Mirae and Harriet,
I hope you've both been enjoying the sunny days!
I have some ideas flowing (ha!) in my mind right now, and I've attached my brainstorming session to this email. Essentially, I am interested in the concept of ripples: how there needs to be an initiation for a rippling effect to occur. I see this in relation to human interactions - we are all connected as human beings, and our actions/dialogues/words have effects. Each of us needs to find it within ourselves to initiate the ripple, and once you do, you will start to feel the connections near and far. I also view human interactions/ripples as a never-ending cycle, like how a river constantly flows with no end.
I am drawn to explore this concept with Asian watercolours and video/sound/gifs. I plan to explore these two mediums, and see how they work separately as well as together. I may end up sticking to one or the other, my process is heavily reliant on experimentation and creation for concrete ideas to emerge.
I hope this is sufficient information! If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to let me know.
Take good care,
Sculptures mimicking marble sculptures in front of run-down residence homes, ornate window frames, all mixed with hints of contemporary everyday life. I think inclusions of the mundane such as the padlock and the Christmas lights were so peculiar that they were the very reason why they caught my eye.
Video call with Stacey, whom I took part in the Red Gate Residency (Beijing) with. We exchanged our conceptual approaches to our body of work, and I found myself visualizing my sketches in physical collages. This idea was encouraged further by Kathleen at our weekly check-ins later in the day. Things are moving along..!
