"The Preserved imagines emotions that pervades objects to imply human desire on preserving intangible feelings in tangible things."

Affection, 2020

Affection is one of the pieces for my thesis. Anthropomorphism is used to describe the emotions of the perfume bottles. They are being put in a love triangle situation. This illustration portrays the intimacy between the couple versus the lonely figure at the background, a very strong sense of affection.

Perfume bottles are used to store specific scent, bottles that can preserve smell. However, these scents are not long-lasting, they will fade-away as time goes by. Again, we are trying to preserve intangible feelings in tangible things.
