UNUNDERSTOOD is a series of images created to look and challenge the Western Gaze. Turning Bangladeshi poetry and henna designs into Photograms, I create patterns to reflect the South Asian culture. Looking at Orientalism within the work, the images become foreign objects of 'Otherness'. I use repetition and layering as the process to create motifs and patterns that allow the Western Gaze to have a small understanding of what it may be. I accept the interaction of 'Otherness' that occurs through Orientalism to take place, allowing the viewer to read them as they please. I use poetry and patterns to create the unspoken dialect between the East and West.
