Stay is a personal and introspective exploration of presence and mindfulness through my art practice. This experimental project is a multi-faceted journey that tells a story through various mediums, of fighting fears and overcoming challenges to find a sense of belonging and connection after moving to a new country. Through my art, I delve into the complexities of being present and learning to embrace vulnerability, as well as the power of creativity in helping us navigate change and uncertainty

The motive behind this artwork is to explore how the same reality can look different when viewed from a non-fearful state of mind. (With reference to stage 1) It delves into how a change in perspective can alter our perception of the world around us. By staying present and finding a sense of belonging in the moment, this artwork showcases how our experiences can be transformed.
