Three blind mice, see how they run


They all ran after the farmer’s wife, who cut off their tails with a carving knife


The cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the moon

NurseryRhyme21 NurseryRhyme22 NurseryRhyme23

The little dog laughed to see such a sport


And the dish ran away with the spoon


There was an old man whose nose

NurseryRhyme51 NurseryRhyme52

Most birds of the air could repose

NurseryRhyme61 NurseryRhyme62 NurseryRhyme63 NurseryRhyme64

But they all flew away at the closing of day

Three blind mice


She had so many children she didn’t know what to do


Here is my handle, here is my spout


Project 2: Impossibilities of Being

Password: 4D


My sequence is based on the transformation of a person through makeup in 3 different settings: school, shopping and concert. The makeup is the lightest for school, followed by shopping and the heaviest for the concert. The images represent the different moods and formalities of each location, and how people change depending on their environment. The 3 mini-series are composed similarly to each other, with a photo from each series having a counterpart from each other series.

Mona Hoobehfekr – She did a series on make up in Iran, where she took photos of women and their make up after wearing the hijab became compulsory and women started to feel more self conscious. I tried to replicate her photos of make up in my series by taking photos of mine for each set of photos.



Subtle changes in appearance can elevate one’s physical appearance to suit the environment or situation he or she is in. Make up has become a formlity in which we introduce ourselves to a situation or environment through our physical appearance. It aids in setting the proper register of behaviour for the setting. Through this assignment, I’ve grown to be in tune to intrinsic human behaviours that express themselves subtly through small things like putting make up.

Ambiguous – A lack of obvious meaning or interpretation, I achieved this by coating some twine in black ink and running this under the press. The resulting shape does not look like it was made by any one object or method, illustrating ambiguity.New Doc 10_9

Spontaneous – Happening without planning or external stimuli, the splat from this spatula in a random way on the paper was a completely spontaneous decision. Black ink was used on the spatula, as well as smeared onto linoleum and then mono-printed onto the paper as a background. New Doc 10_10

Turbulent – Not stable, the opposite of calm. Black ink was splattered onto the page in a haphazard manner, and then smeared and scratched in with a spatula, mimicking movement and chaos upwards, with sharp edges to show tension.New Doc 10_8
