Born in Singapore, 1966

Our society is characterized with increasing sense of disaffection and disorientation which tends to negate anything that is old and obsolete in pursue of sensory pleasures and in the name of ‘progress’…

As a result, we are gradually becoming less aware of the value and subconscious influence of internalized references.

I endeavour to re-connect viewers to such inherent internalized references through distancing by de-familiarizing the past through alienation effect by altering the familiar symbols, natural phenomenon and others. Thus, creating a fresh perception by the use of material, texture, expressions; and reconstructing our subliminal mind by transforming the experiences.

Teck Ee holds a BA in Architecture and MA in Social Science.
