Vienna
2022

Vienna is a photographic project showcased in a printed book, that makes reference from the lyrics of Vienna by Billy Joel and the romantic comedy film, 13 Going on 30. The premise of the film and the song inspired this project. Vienna recreates a scene of the film, creating a fictionalised account of a Singaporean individual returning home and experiencing that same sorrow and remorse. As she returns home, she discovers that the life she left behind hasn't changed and has been waiting for her the entire time. Photographed as film stills, Vienna serves as a metaphor for home.

Drawing parallels to Singaporean culture, it's a sentiment that most adults can relate to; in a fast-paced country like Singapore, many of us have a tendency to forget and neglect our coming of age. A lot of us are subconsciously forced to dream without cherishing the present. It serves as a reminder that fulfilment or satisfaction are not guaranteed no matter how far we go or what dreams we materialise.

When will you realise Vienna waits for you?
