INK

Ink is a collage of some of the letters my father wrote me over the years. The poem tries to capture the fading art of letter writing and pays homage to the man who taught me the art:

The paper absorbs
the ink in itself.
They become one
to form beauty and raw emotion.
And millions of words and letters
are brought to life
through this torrid love affair.
Its smell conjures up the sea,
evokes a sense of love and yearning.
And for that I thank you.
Ink

The original poster is 33.1 x 46.8 inches and hangs on the wall of his study.

 

Dazed & Confused

Four 15-second films that capture instances of pure emotion while consuming content online. 

The project was based on the insight that when people laugh, cry or emote in other ways to what is on their phones or laptops they don't do it for an audience. Those emotions are pure and sincere. To capture those moments we put four willing volunteers in a dark room and filmed them for 30-minutes each with a playlist of videos, news articles or content of their choice. We captured those few seconds in which they completely forgot about the camera watching them and showcased those pure, unadulterated emotions.
