Spotted! Saraphina Ching

Having graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Saraphina Ching works mostly with illustrations, photographs and text, at times incorporating other forms of mixed media. Books, films, music and everyday life are some of the things that inspire Saraphina in her creative process. “Though photography is my major, I do not solely depend on it as my main medium. I see photography as a form of narrative, a tool which aids in my storytelling. In fact, photographs can be moving images or part of an illustration or even play the role of a fading memory; simply put, it can be part of anything,” she adds.

Seraphina also likes to write, and her stories often revolve around themes such as fading memories, dreams, nightmares, childhood and death.

“Of Clockwork Hearts, is a mixed media installation around such themes. Therefore, the stories are essentially important and play a major role, for they make up the melody, while the rest of the media acts as the accompanying rhythm and beat.”

Saraphina has exhibited her works in various group shows such as Variegated Realities, at Alliance Francaise in 2010; PEEK, a pre-Japan show at 2902 Gallery and similarly at the Month of Photography in Tokyo, 2008. She has also participated in the Pameran Poskad 2008 and 2010 show. Her short film, Snip Snip, was awarded a bronze at The Crowbar Awards 2007.
