The work Velleity is an installation of photographs presented rows of shelves along the gallery wall together with a companion photobook. The piece explores of process of self-reflection and self-discovery. This experimental work is a form of meditation that reveals itself through the process of walking, photographing, and repurposing this into an installation work. It visualizes the experience of a person navigating different cultures, social expectations, realities, and ponders my displacement in the past and present, leading to moments of isolation and a struggle to communicate.

The photobook, with its ordered images and textual references, develops the concept of the images and text as a coded language to describe the seemingly unexceptional moments of everyday life. Throughout the work, there are series of repeated motifs, such as photographs of a window and soft pink colors. 


The writing makes its way into the series in the photobook in the form of deconstructed, murmuring text, Within the photobook, and letterforms, punctuation marks, and words become a visual element, working with the images to reinforce the use of image as language to describe the seemingly unexceptional moments of daily life and the challenges of communication.
