Trauma Works

The three channel video, consisting of "New Day", "Life Happens", "Contemplation", examines the metaphorical meaning of our emotions and thoughts - obvious, subtle and invisible - that we experience in the hustle and bustle of life.

Through the performative act of blowing balloons, juxtaposed against the internal world and external world we go through, common sights and sounds play silently, a reflection of a typical routine in our society.

Tensions rise inside, but it is quickly concealed by the identity and masks we put on to survive in this world. How long can we hide our emotions; how long can we repress our True self beneath against the social constructs we live by? And how long can a man continue to function in this endless loop of pressure, before he snaps?
