Okay jokes aside. So, for this second project of ours, as the title suggests, I decided to work on how we should try to slow down our pace in life to enjoy the little things in our lives. For every single scene that I am going to have, I aim to capture at least one or two public members who take time off their hectic schedules to just slow down life and enjoy it for a moment or so. I am really bad with uploading videos and stuff on youtube etc and linking it to here. So below is the link for my instagram post on one of my “walks” with a few guys on the left of the frame just sitting and reading news/playing game on their phones for most of my walk.
Do criticise on it and let me know if you guys think there are any cool locations I should walk ridiculously slow at 🙂 And also the BGM for the video!
In this technology driven world, I would not even dare to imagine a day without my chosen object. Cliche as it might be, it is my phone as it is really indispensable to me in terms of it’s functionality. I spend the majority of my time in the day doing stuff that involves my phone and it keeps me connected, occupied, entertained and assists me in countless ways in my everyday life. As depicted in my exhibition of photos, it is with me from the time I wake up till the sun sets. It serves many purposes ranging from basic needs such as waking me up in the morning and keeping me in contact with my friends, to secondary but important functions like serving as a camera and editing my photographs.
So the way I chose to approach this assignment is working on the point whereby i choose an object which is of significant value to me and not so much on the emotional “symbolic value” approach. Mainly because I do not feel attached to non-living objects and was unable to find an appropriate object that had symbolic value to me.

So, here goes the photos from the initial stages of the assignments with the comments Prof Vlad gave me with regards to the respective photos which I completely agree and am thankful for. The sequence of photos is supposed to be of chronological order of a typical day of my life.
So yah, hope I did not elaborate too much on this post and hope that this is sufficient. 🙂
