Narratives were born from our histories, cultures, religions and traditions since the beginning of the earliest civilization and it has continued to pass down through many generations. Drawn to the connection between narrative and its cultural anthropological influence, I research on their connecting element, symbolical imagery and motif, revised and fused with modern pop culture to create new narrative with modern day interpretations.Their strong illustrative and ritualistic natures, narratives provoke different intentions, forms and functions emphasizing their flexibility and potential to enhance the psychological state of the mind to dream of other possibilities in the realistic and structured world.
