Artwork 3 Details :

A second iteration of “what shall be restored, what has been irrevocably changed”, shown at the 2020 NTU ADM Gallery exhibition, The Foot Beneath The Flower. The work ponders how the more things change, the more they stay the same. The perils of our digital present + future are as old as humanity, albeit through new avenues. Yet the possibilities of effecting positive change + contributing to the greater good are equally amplified
