As I’ve developed and expanded my worldview over the many years, my personal philosophies have evolved along with it. Though the ideology that inspired the “Art Apparent” (refer to ‘About this space’ snippet on home page) phase of my life remains an inescapable core aspect of my existence — in terms of my creative endeavours, I have shifted my primary focus from the self-explorative to the collective human-centric. In this next chapter, I sense an urgency to concern myself with seeking to improve our lived experiences by understanding and highlighting problems on a communal and societal level — more precisely, those that aim to enrich our lives with positivity. I envision myself between the traditional and the modern, between Bayt al-Ḥikmah and ˈBaʊˌhaʊs — with the intent to contribute towards a better tomorrow.
