I have been creating art for about 6 years, which I believe is a short period of time. Just like a 6-year-old child.

The activity of creating art has been a vital one for me; it helps me to explore myself, my emotional state, my expressions.

For me there is nothing mystical in this exercise. I believe there are always interesting things happening around us, which we call everyday life. Everyday is a realm of unnoticed and the overlooked. Everyday life does not exist as a generality. There are as many everyday lives as there are place, people and ways of life. I tend to explore the things that i come across, the word, the emotions; what do they mean and what kind of relationship I develop with the things i experience in everyday life. 

Inspired from the idea that how objects are not just objects in our society; we overburden them intuitively with significance and meaning. i try to explore new ways to put my experience forward for the audience. Giving those experiences a new identity. 


This is a still from my recent video projection. This text comes from a conversation that i was having with a friend. This is based on a study that how subject has different meaning depending on the environment and emotional state viewer is in. How we read a text is shaped by how we expect to discuss it. The same text can be subject to various interpretations. The "text" is not an independently existing object but the heuristic aggregate of all possible interpretations which themselves emerge in response to the text. As mentioned in the Greek history text is like a mirror, always reflecting something that is not in the mirror itself.

    Uzair, your reading of text and meaning – especially the overburdening of text and images with meaning – is a thought that really struck a chord. There is a theory explored by Deleuze and Guattari concerning Schezophrenic readings that looks at the flipside of such a weight that lies on words and images. You may find it interesting, as it creates a binary by saying what if we had the ability to read images without any prior knowledge or notions – like a schizophrenic with no memory of the past or understanding of the future would. They describe such a reading as one that has a ‘intense lack of reality’ and is yet absolutely real because it is free of any burden.

    ” Everyday is a realm of unnoticed and the overlooked. Everyday life does not exist as a generality”

    These sentences for me are quite interesting, how you explain the everyday in your own words is quite particular because it reminds us that we are only existing in the present. No matter how worried we are about the future or stressed about the past, our true value is in the now.

    I believe art, gives us that satisfaction on being in the present, when creating a work of art all the emotions and decision we make are key to the end result.

    What you say about a text, having different meanings depending on the circumstance of the reader or viewer, is analogous to what Dengke said about the concept of ‘home’, and how people in different circumstances experience or imagine, or dream of ‘home’.

    Artists can help us to discover the variety of meanings of our human experience by giving physical form to their experiences.
