Karter - Kitchen accesories


It'll be almost a year before its my time to put my works up on display and let it be critique unscrupulously. I've seen my seniors graduate year after without knowing really what happened to them except for the few that managed to have their name repeatedly appear on design sites for their winning entries. I thought about that for myself today.

3 years ago, I made my first product presentation as a freshmen. The reception was less than lukewarm if not cold, by my professors and tutors. I can't quite figure out what was exactly going on in their heads as they judged my product but I was honestly quite satisfied with my work.

A year later, it was submitted online and became part of an online exhibition showcasing Asia's up and coming designers in conjunction with the Singapore Design Festival in 2007.
If you're interested, the link to the exhibition can be found here at Dandelion .

Here are some product shots. Do contact me if you're interested in owning one of these.

Cambodia - Day 1

The Killing Fields

This series of photos taken was probably the first time I was exposed to really interesting subjects but at the same time feel hopelessly helpless. You see someone dying and there's nothing you can really do to alleviate the situation. At that point of time, I was merely a student with a camera. And even after all these years, I am still wrestling with this issue.

Back in 2002, I had participated in an overseas community service project to Cambodia. Together with 20 Early Childhood and Engineering students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, our task was to help refurbished an orphanage in Kompong Cham.

In the coming weeks, more photos will be uploaded from this trip.
The first stop we made after landing was at the Pol pot regime's Killing Fields.
