## 4D – Project 1 “Pair”

As i mentioned in my previous post, I will be doing on the theme Pair.

What is pair? A dictionary defines pair as it is a set of two things used together. For me, firstly, in our daily life some item are meant to be placed together in order to function. If we remove either one of the item, the item just turn out to be meaningless. Secondly, pair can also be how our mind automatically links certain things together. When someone mentions an item, how our brain will link it up with another item that always appears together. Lastly, in term of relationship there can be friends, family and boy-girl relationship. They make up the other half of your life, without them it’s like another part of you are gone. There are some many things that come in pair that we neglect because it just comes so naturally. What if one day the item start to go missing, will you notice their importance?

I presented the photo in color and black n white. The reason some photo are in black n white because those are the images that are missing their other half. It also give a loneliness to the image when one is missing.

## 4D – Conceptualization pt2

My initial idea was to do a before and after and focusing on food. However, i decided to change the theme to Pairs. The reason be it there is not a lot of farm in Singapore and the farm location are quite remote.

Pair, i separate the idea into three different component.

1. a set of two things used together. For example, some things are meant work together, if one is missing the item can’t function. (Eg. Chopsticks)
2. When you think of one thing, you will automatically link it to another. Some might not agree, but this is what i think of when one of them is mention. (Eg. Fork & Spoon)
3. Others like relationship, in term of family, friends or lover

The mindmap below will show you more on the list of item that is link to pair.

I took a few photo to convey this idea, but this is not how the final composition going to be like.

My idea was to do a before and after, focusing on food. How is the food like before its process and put on our table. For example, chicken and after processing it, it can turn into a chicken burger or a plate of chicken rice. I went on to research on the type of animal in Singapore that i can capture.

The mindmap shows the type of food i want to do on and the location i want to shoot the animal. There is also another side of the mindmap which shows Singapore. I wanted to show the old Singapore and new Singapore side by side. It’s impossible for me to take photo of the old Singapore, however i can still find images of it online. I will use the old image and take a photo of it at the places that it has become today.
