I often write my experiences in a journal but find it inadequate to convey how I truly feel. So, I translate the paragraphs to a visual form that is three dimensional, simplistic, and often relatable to many. My sculpture series is a three-dimensional journal that conveys snippets of my emotions and feelings toward life; and the themes of this series often touch upon knowledge and contemplation. I call these sculptures “three dimensional hieroglyphs of my experiences.” Often times, the true meaning of text and words are just beneath that thin layer of their lexical meaning. In other words, we live in a metaphorical world. Three dimensional representation of my experience transcends the boundary of words.
