about this work

"Dirty Mind / Otak Porno" reflects on the negative aspects of technological advancement. When such advancement is misused, it creates a negative effect on society. One of the major negative side effects of technological advancement is that of pornography. Easy access to pornographic websites has created a societal addiction and dependency for many young people and students. The headless figure in the work screaming is a portrayal of someone losing control, filled with 'dirty' thoughts.
