"Things" is a series of ink drawings exploring the flow of objects naturally formed by the artist's hand when doodling, with an intention to manifest beauty. The objects often take the appearance of patterns reminiscent of jewelry and three-dimensional embroidery, influenced by the artist's Panjabi clothing and accessories. The series aims to integrate abstract floral representation with living flowers and vines in a winding, connected display, defining ornamentation from a human perspective. The piece was initially hand-drawn, scanned, and then digitally colored for the large-scale display.
