Final Year Project(s)


The Actualising Self at NTU ADM Portfolio

Who are you? Who am I? What is self-identity, and how do we seek its best form?

This project will be an introspective take on identity, starting from my own. A deeper understanding of my self will be attempted through contemplative methods and experiences. With Maslow’s self-actualisation pyramid as a guide, the process of self-actualising will be explored and visualised through creative forms. Alternatively viewed as a cohesive and non-traditional self-portrait, this project hopes to invoke a meditative response for the viewer. 

The Actualising Self at NTU ADM Portfolio

“He who stops being better, stops being good.” – Oliver Cromwell We change and grow with time and experiences. Our self-identity is fluid; there will always be room for more self-insight. Self-awareness and self-regulation should coexist to usher in growth. To form the simple habit of living an examined life, to make conscious efforts to grow and change positively, to regulate and better ourselves. This project is a personal documentation of learning to lead a more examined life. It hopes to inspire viewers to do the same for their own lives.
