“A piece of home” is a visual translation and exploration of the Thai hanging garland through my lens, translating this tradition into my creative output through digital media. Focusing on a tradition, I have been a part of since childhood acts as a remembrance of the beauty. Organic flowers used to make these garlands are chosen explicitly; a flower carries a deep, profound meaning and creates this connection between nature and humans. In a spiritual sense, flowers bridge the world of physical forms and the formless. Seeing beauty in flowers creates a pause in being - to the beauty that is part of their innermost being, their true nature. Without fully realising it, flowers would become for us an expression in the form of that which is most high, most sacred, and ultimately formless within ourselves.

Suppose industrialisation has caused the slow disappearance of arts and crafts. In that case, the revival of crafting through the digital realm emerges. We live in a world where “less is more” has become the social default for every design choice. Which raises, why does detail matter? The relevance of ornamentation is an ongoing discussion; if the artefact has a function that cannot be touched but only felt, to what extent does the relevance of ornaments lie?
