Codex Golden

Codex Golden looks at the Golden Mile Complex. A building whose value has been questioned and contested through the decades, 
it is now deemed rather irrelevant towards urbanisation and development. Yet to me, it is a place of significance where family ties, friendships and relationships are forged.

Places can be seen as specific sites that hold our experiences. It holds a unique moment where the mind, the body, and the world are aligned. They make sense out of each other and create a permanent impression in our lives. Places morph, extend and diminish. Each time we revisit them, it has the ability to build upon newer experiences or make greater meaning out of the older ones. They do so according to the people that you are with, the stage that you are in life and the situations that the universe chooses to put you in. Hence, it is a chanced occurrence yet highly specific and intentional. Each experience in a place is not replicable. They build upon each other and are a way of understanding life.

Codex Golden is a site-specific project which is essentially a collection of experiences put together by me trying to answer the following questions: What does a ‘Place’ mean? How do we deem if it is ‘Of value’? More importantly, how do we make sense out of these ‘Places’? This is performed through the act of Walking— a common thread that holds all experiences together.

Lest I Forget

Lest I Forget is the exploration of thoughts that went through my mind in a life-changing experience. This personal photographic work, tests and stretches the limits of the medium and explores my fears of losing my memory that I could never do so verbally; a yearning to revisit the past and the present; an obsession to collect and document. The project also seeks to discover the philosophical nature of photography and the physical representations of the visual image.

Right There

Right There is a series focusing on the nature of interactions between family members and objects found in the household, on how both fail to follow normal rules.

Objects, after all, are conceived, designed and constructed by humans. Most objects are simple, unsophisticated and functionally designed to perform their roles. Although objects are constructed for their primary function, there are times when changes are inevitable and are made to accommodate different environmental conditions. This project aims to understand familial relations through these objects’ changes and adaptations.
