I apologise that this blog is rather erratic at times and you guys just end up waiting and waiting for new post to come up but they just don’t appear. I am really really sorry for that. Let me get you guys up to speed on my situation and hopefully you’ll still come to my blog everyday and find something new in the same post that you see. I currently am in what my nation calls “National Service” – a 2 year “contract” with the armed forces to serve the country, compulsory for all males aged 18 and above. Therefore, this results me staying in a military camp for a greater part of my week, only to return home during the weekends rather exhausted. Even though I may not exactly be brain dead when I return home, my body pretty much is, and thus the lack of post on the site. So I am truly sorry and hope you viewers, readers, artists, etc. will understand my predicament.
Moving on from that point, I am here to present to you a post on my body of work from the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme spanning 2011 to 2012. These works revolved around my fascination of space, our control over in, be it in the gallery or in our everyday lives, and the way we perceive and treat space. Over the course of the next few weeks or so, I shall unveil my journey of discovery and thought processes as I sought to create works that defy and question what art is and break the convention of what we usually think certain mediums are. These photographs are from my IB portfolio, and rest assured they are all genuine and in no way plagiarised. If anyone desires to use my works as reference to their own projects or IB art, please, please comment or post just to inform me about what you are using it for and I would gladly allow it.
i hope that these works will change your perception of the space around you and what art is. The potential of what you see and the things you touch are endless. But the most important thing that gave me this body of works was the openness of mind and to not take what we use and see for granted.
