About Death and Hope for Exhibition 21 Grams:
My work is a process of transforming death into soul and hope, as well as the shadow of my childhood and my slowly growing up. In my work,Brooch A will use black enamel, and the black represents death, which represents the horror of despair. Brooch B is inlaid with gold foil on the basis of the black enamel color, representing the soul. It is the ultimate hope and relief of death that represents the soul. Brooch C in fact, the soul has been around the death, death is not terrible, the soul is the real ferry man.

My story:
I am scared of death. The fear has been with me since I was taught what ‘death’ means. I remember when I was 4 years old, I was laying on the bed, staring at the ceiling and wondering about death. I remember telling myself, “don’t worry Teddy, you will find the cure when you grow up so that you can live for a very long time”. Life started to get busy after I grew a bit older and the idea of death faded until the year my grandpa passed away when I was doing 4th grade in primary school. His death made me realise that maybe immortality is only a fairy tale. Since then I decided to confront my fear.
 
My dad and I had this conversation that stuck in my head for a while.
‘Daughter, your mom and I are getting old.’
‘How come?’
Dad said it very casually, ‘If I can live till 80, there is only 20 years left.’
 
I began to realise the time of my parents taking care of problems for me is over. Now it is my term to be there for them. You might not be able to understand that I wasn’t feeling anxious about the trivial while preparing for my wedding in the past six months. I was anxious about death. Marriage symbolizes a beginning of a new journey which also is the end of my youth, which also means that now I’m one step closer to the end. Before my wedding, I decided that I would travel with my parents every year because time for us being together is running out. If they can make until 80, it is only going to be 20 times. I guess I will love them even more from now on as I can hear the ticking clock. Death makes me scared but also makes me grow.

Life is a cycle, but our soul is eternal, which has witnessed all the ups and downs in our life, every change and every future. I do believe in the existence of soul, which might be weighted 21 grams, an entity which has stored all the memories from the past life, an entity lives outside the cycle of life and death.
