Artist, Singapore

BA Fine Art, Goldsmiths College, London

I am interested in deep topography and the practice of walking - the experience of the walking process disrupted by the medium format camera, which serves as a mediating device between the image and the experience. My practice explores the ways of looking at images, the visual culture of the aerial view, the experience of drawing in relation to photography as well as notions of abstraction. Text plays an important role at times, in raising questions with regards to the concept of 'place'.
