"Always keep in mind that each one of us have unique stories and experiences"

The project is all about creating an artwork based on a psychological theory entitled "The Big Five Personality Traits", which is done through a process of traditional sculptures. The process also includes of finding appropriate materials such as looking for materials that are very durable or firm, to materials that are recycable to use as part of the sculptures. The way that the sculptures was built was all around personal stuff that are significant in shaping of who I really am, from my old to the present self. I use fictional monsters to represent those personalities that I have since its my personal preference because I always feel or see myself as a grotesque beast inside, or merely suggesting that my mind is mostly living on a world of fiction than reality. The objective is to promote self-discovery and understand who you really are to yourself and to the lens of others around you.
