Project: What Happened to the Rest of the Map?

What Happened to the Rest of the Map? (2019) – Part of the ‘Remnants’ series

I was travelling back home with my kids on the Central Line and when I looked up, I saw that a huge chunk of the line map was missing. Someone went out of their way to rip out a whole map and cut/left out these fours stations. It makes you ask loads of questions. Why did they do this? Is this some kind of vandalism? Why did they leave these four stations? And why only four stations? Why not one, two or just the whole map minus these four stations?

Like I said, loads of questions.

Then again, it made me think perhaps this person just wanted people to look at it and smile. I certainly did and that is why I took the photo. I showed it to my kids and they were equally amused. And if that was their goal, well, they succeeded.

I hope by sharing this photo I too have made you smile. My shameless attempt of paying it forward through someone else’s attempt of making the world a much happier place.

Project: Fallen Petals

Fallen Petals (2019) – Part of the ‘Remnants’ series

In a flower shop with a friend and I spot these petals on the window display. They looked beautiful, but they also symbolised how fleeting life is. Their life as being part of a whole flower ended that day. They never got to leave the shop to adorn someone’s space.

Just for this moment, I got to enjoy their beauty, as I knew they would soon be discarded to make way for the next fresh batch of fallen petals.
