Empty Vessels (2020)

Ceramic vase on glass pane. 

A pretty vase with a narrow neck that almost does not give it a function except to be beautiful.

In the current context of social media pressurising people to have the perfect beauty, I often ponder how this standards are being judged as the idea of beauty is very subjective and also the impact it creates on the mental health of people. In getting caught up with the notion to be popular in social media, through “perfect, pretty” photos, people are living a life that is split between ‘social media’ reality and ‘physical’ reality.
