Final Year Project(s)
The passing of a loved one, shaking the stillness of the everyday stirs us to relook our inward parts, to ponder a relationship that might have never been reflected upon. Rummage My Heart, a mixed media installation seeks to reconcile the internal emotional conflicts that only surfaced following the passing of my grandfather on 4 June 2012. Archiving and memorializing my journey of grief; the project leads us to ponder on familial relationships, grief and closure.
