The Artwork

I got myself sunburnt when i was capturing a portion of the roof of The Esplanade. The Esplanade is an art theatre by the bay in Singapore since 2002. The architecture also recognised by the locals as a durian because of it's protruding spikes on the roof. For the process, i waited under the scorching sun waiting for the cloud to clear off to get the blue hue. I thought it was mundane to just have a portion of the roof as it does not stand out differently. During the editing on the same day after the image was captured, i was actually quite burnt out by the lash of heat in my country. But an idea struck me to make this image into something special. I used a technique i used to play with more than a decade ago. i turned and flip the other three images around, then i combined it in a geometric and pattern system to achieve. I was even surprised by the result of this. This final image truly took shape of a durian.
