“Have you ever analysed things to the degree where you can’t really remember the difference between what’s real and what you’ve created in your head?” – Edie Sedgwick. The motivation behind DWAM started off as a reflection of thoughts and memories of the artist’s relationship with someone. A unique bond; more than a friendship less than a relationship type of connection to be precise, of whom she met under an unusual situation. In a blink of an eye, they bade goodbye and parted ways for good. Such temporality in our daily lives this day and age seems to become a normal routine. It does not necessarily require a loss of someone dear to appreciate what we still have around us now. What is left behind at the end of the day is just a recollection of memories. Falling into a dream-like state, one could develop delusions at the same time maintaining one’s sanity. DWAM seeks to capture the very moment consisting of a recollection of memories before the instant one is flung into a state of disconnection with the space. The work is hallucinogenic, dark and has a type of duality that finds various ways to express itself.
