Medium Mixed media, installation

Rivers in You birthed from the attempt at translating the themes of life into an art installation. The artwork encompasses the emotional terrains; Fear, Faith, Freedom of four budding artists under the guidance of their mentor; how they interpret, express and reconcile them. Stemming from an image-based process, the artwork evolved into an immersive experience of visuals, conceptual ideas as well as using poetry and personal objects. Rivers in You hopes to ignite the idea to the audience that there are rivers flowing within us parallel to our journeys that cross streams and inspire but at the end of the day, we are each with our own experiences and attachments.
