I’m a seed though a different one from you is an investigative visual project by Singapore-based photographer Lavender Chang that pursues the possibilities of life and existence. It launches Prelude, an exhibition series staged along the Print and Film Galleries which highlight significant works-in-progress by Singapore-based photographers.
Over a period of a year, Chang experimented with growing a variety of beans in diverse mediums and conditions such as carbonated drinks, Chinese ink, milk and blood – metaphors of the struggles and obstacles an individual faces in life. Resembling human forms, the seedlings arduously eke out their transient existence. In the process, she contemplates on the diminutive but sturdy nature of seeds as metaphors for human survival.
