‘ “Art” is the skill to transform the unseeable out of the ether into the tangibles.’ – Hiroshi Sugimoto
In the process of attempting to seize the unseeables through my imageries, the backdropping zeitgeist is inadvertently captured as well; Serving as a record for posterity, in fear of forgetfulness, in fear of indifference. Frozen in frames are the photos, words, symbols, numbers, encasing the ethereal and metaphysical: emotion, inspiration, epiphany and nostalgia; Images as anchors against the tide of time, to affix memories against our forgetfulness, be it out of habit or weariness.
This exhibition was to record the past that we shouldn’t be used to, the future that is hard to imagine, and the now that shall not be forgotten.
