A Boy & His Crayon
2023

A Boy & His Crayon is an exploration of shapes using oil pastels drawn on vintage newspaper, and spatially imagined in public spaces. The idea is rather straightforward: I believe it's necessary for me as a designer to return to the physical medium of drawing. As a kid, my dad would provide me a blue crayon and a lined notepad when he took me with him to attend weekly sermons at the mosque, just to keep me busy drawing (so I wouldn't be a nuisance running around the mosque and disturbing other patrons).

Little did he know, whatever parenting method he used on me, shaped who I am today. This work serves as a reminder of the day I received that blue crayon for the first time.

Screw Typography!
2023

Sometimes, rules are meant to be broken and some words are not meant to be read. The zine was produced using a combination of handdrawn and digital media, creating a compendium of textures, displacements, and irregularities. These were then scanned and printed showcasing the experimental nature of these textures.


Azura took inspiration from Giambattista Bodoni's late 18th century typographic revolution. This new form of typefaces was then categorised as Bodoni typefaces or modern serifs. Since then, numerous forms have been created to accommodate various purposes and the ever-changing printing press. Azura identified possibilities for revival by exaggerating its serifs and incorporating calligraphic complexions into its design, while maintaining its conventional modern serif structure. Azura is ideal for displays or headliners because of its broad verticals and delicate strokes.

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?

Love Conversations
2022
Can Artificial Intelligence really "love" like humans? What does Artificial Intelligence think about love, a pure human emotion? Or does Artificial Intelligence's love just lines of code?

This absurd project challenges the reality of human feeling in AI. Throughout the entire process, we were consumed by the question, "Can Artificial Intelligence understand love?" We steadily investigated and tested the limits of AI that we could. It is a generative and archival project on finding love. The goal of the entire undertaking was to pose an impossible question. It prompts the viewer to consider the possibility that artificial intelligence could one day achieve consciousness and produce the most human of feelings, love.
