Our life is affected by our choices, once made we are bound by them. The materials that I use in my exhibition speak to my ideas about community and harmony. By placing familiar everyday objects such as discarded chairs and boat sails in an art installation, I am attempting to challenge social norms that shape one's destiny by exploring broader possibilities. The physical tensions in the work are created through tying, binding, pulling, stitching, and assembling to manifest the state of co-dependence and interconnectivities between the objects and materials. I approach my practice as a vehicle to express something about our human experience, and by transforming everyday materials and found objects into new forms and structures, I wish to connect art and ephemeral everyday experience and forge new meanings.
