The labour behind even the small things is immense. It takes heaps of love, contemplation, and precise execution to generate the simplest of pleasures. There is so much beauty in the process. "Elixir of Life" zooms into a construction site where a group of women create a pomegranate-fig stew. The delectable, healing aromas rise into the air like a cloud of magic dust. The simplest things are complex for some, and the most complex of things are simple for others. Complexity often slows down our minds, prompting us to think carefully about our next moves. It allows for us to be less mechanic and more mindful. To understand the things that seem beyond us, it might help to deconstruct the process a little bit, and revel in each step.

Also, my love for pomegranates can be summed up in this wee ol' statement below:

"They exhibit aesthetic beauty, health benefits, and mysticism. I have had a lifelong attachment to pomegranates, as they were a delicacy on my visits to India. Upon seeing a pomegranate, my synesthetic response is to see deep maroon rubies surrounded by a crimson marble encasing. The physical similarity to stones and minerals connects to opulence and fortitude. If not careful, the juice can leave a permanent stain, proving an ever-lasting presence in the natural world. There is more than meets the eye with this fruit; although it has a smooth, hexagonical-rounded husk, there's a whole intricate world within the shell. Pomegranates have been poeticized for centuries, and I want to seek the depths to which this can be explored. My aim is to turn symbols into palimpsest, drawing from historical references and adding to their narrative with each new project. Through this technique, I hope for the pomegranate to become one of the symbols associated with the identity of my work."
