An introspection and search for identity in an enclosed environment (bathroom) that creates a scenario of self alienation – and the renewal that comes afterwards.
The project explored how an individual is perceived or identified in other cultural settings. Is it possible to adopt a different personality I order to fit into this new environment? How does one deal with the consequences of culture shock – anxiety, nervousness, frustration, fear, alienations and indeed anger – for being “coerced” to conform to the needs of the society. The project shows that life is essentially a stage – we alter our appearance when we change or remove our clothes.
The series also shows that we are often encapsulated in ambiguity and uncertainty. Through the various stages – the real act is the transformation of communication – the outward expression of our psyche.
