red lines (2015)
Installation with four digital prints on inkjet photo paper of bone relics (85cm x 61cm),
transparent helium balloons, red ribbons, handwritten note on red paper and soil
 
Even after someone’s departure, they still leave connections with the material world. “red lines” is a visualization of this connection between the material world that I exist in, with the spiritual realm that my grandmother has ascended to, via our blood relationship. The dirt, as well as the images of her bone relics, are a point of contemplation for the living to yearn the intangible presence of the departed, while the floating balloons attempts to send my wishes to my beloved grandmother up above. 
Installation in the gallery of DECK, Singapore.
