George Town's rich architectural heritage always serves as an inspiration for me. The exhibition venue; Whitaways Arcade; had an existing spiral timber staircase. I was immediately struck by the rustic beauty and charm of the staircase as an architectural element. At the same time, I connected with the spiral staircase metaphorically as it came to represent the current state of my life; that of a driving desire to search yet not really knowing what I am searching for. I come to conclude that. I am more driven by the question rather than the need to know the answer. We can never be at the same place twice because we are never the same person twice.
