The Margins of Memory (2023)

Through a triptych of risograph-printed illustrations, the studio project shows a non-linear narrative of growing older where a central, almost utopian childhood memory is nestled within margins that unfold how the experience of a ritual has changed over time. The project references the rich history of South-Asian miniature paintings and calligraphy through its design. The outer border, with mirrors and reflections situates the story in the present and invites its immediate audiences into the pictorial frame. The different characters, custom typefaces and motifs are brought into focus through a risograph-animated short film.
