When I was in high school a grey kameez a traditional Pakistani shirt, was a part of my school uniform. I wanted to remake this garment and make it stand out. So I elongated the kameez till it almost touched the ceiling. The kameez was meant to be made out of dust and constantly leaking dust. I wanted to work with an element like dust, which we see everywhere and which constantly accumulates with time. I want to take something so organic and invisible like dust and make an extremely visible and imposing silhouette of a young girl, referencing the weight of her presence and experience.
