In Assignment 1, we were tasked to introduce ourselves through a series of images/ concepts.
Task 1: Me
I personally love food art/ photography and I thought it could be an interesting and fun way to a convey message. Firstly, I love pasta and the many different types of pasta and ingredients, depict the many things that occur in one’s life at any point in time. The first image represents my desire to find order and balance in my life. I feel that with a system, things will naturally fall into place. I also love intricate details and beautiful aesthetics. The second image show arrows pointing upwards, indicating that things will go in the right direction with order and balance, as well as the right values/ mindset. Thirdly, the plate of cooked pasta indicates that success can be attained using the “raw ingredients” mentioned earlier.
Task 2: Object and representation of self
The object I chose was a rose quartz necklace, a birthday gift from my friends, hence it is very special to me. The rose quartz is a calming and reassuring crystal. It strengthens empathy, sensitivity, and aids in the acceptance of necessary change. It also dissolves the sorrows, worries, fears and resentments suppressing the heart’s ability to give and receive love, and replaces it with healing, comfort and inner nourishment. Though it has been mine for only a year, I believe that it gives me strength in tough times. A clear mind and soul will eventually lead you to the happiness you desire.
Task 3: My world
The place that was significant to me was the library @ Orchard, located at Orchard Gateway. What fascinated me the most about this library was its beautiful architecture. Located in the middle of town, it is a place anyone would go for some peace and quiet, away from the busy shopping malls. Everything about this library was intriguing, especially the modern interior design such as the wavy book shelfs and CD compartments. I thought it was pretty cool that the library was designed by a team of Singapore Polytechnic design students and lecturers. 🙂
