What got lost at Sea.

This work revolves around my father’s job as a marine engineer, which requires him to stay away from home for longer duration of time. This work traces the impact of distance upon the whole household, especially on me.  

The process started from creating bizarre compositions of our house, that is fragmented, to show how his absence is felt by every member of the house. Other than this, I used objects utilized by my father, such as, his couch, photographs and a paper boat to denote his job as a marine engineer. One of the main visuals that appeared from his photographs was of the sea, that became a vital part of these compositions. Together with all these visuals, I tried capturing different emotions within my work, such as, absence, discomfort, unease, worry, gloomy and fragmented within it. The process, particularly for me, became as important as the final visual.
