the root of affection

An overgrown tree scaling up a concrete wall, unhindered by obstacles to continue growing — this inspired me to create forms that represent the growth manifested from a period in my life where I am constantly moving forward and finding my ground.

‘the root of affection’ series explores a form of endearment through the love language of physical touch. Through this expression, I was able to bring to life the roots of my affections that came from the warm embraces of love and support from my loved ones.

With this in mind, my affection presents itself in this series in the form of ‘hugs’ — huggable cushions wrapped in soft fabrics. It is a reminder for me to appreciate those who are still with me, as I can only wish to embrace my dearly departed loved ones one last time.
