Art description

While looking back at my journey I came across the many shapes and forms that I have taken on within myself. I reflect by strife, learning, adapting, and moving on. While some moments were traumatizing, depressing, out of my control or calculated, others were lovely and heartwarming.  

The path I am walking on takes me through interesting situations and “I” as in me, my physical shape, is only a mere vessel of adapting to every situation. The works presented resemble this adaptation and the shapelessness of a moment. What makes these moments sacred is their capability of making you who you are. It is this very element that makes them worthy of awe and respect. 

I wanted to use the components that the BIC pen is made from and abandoned its shape. I wanted to forget the function of the pen itself, denying its application and fundamentally reinterpreting its essence.  

The pen consists of three main elements; plastic, the metal point, and the typical blue ink. The plastic shape with its blue ink resembles the vivid memory. The shape is presented on a metal bearer guarding its formless presence.  

The gold nugget stands for the learning moments, which are precious. These are presented on a metal bearer with a velvet touch.  

Finally, the red velvet amorph produces sound, embodying the conquered and lingering moments that have shaped me throughout the pain of which I have learned from the most. 

What is your last conquered moment?
