"I’ve been with the same family over 20 years. When I first came to Singapore, I was very homesick. But I love to take care of babies and I had my employers young children to take care. Those children are grown up now and are starting families of their own so I have another generation of babies to care for. I really love it."
This motif is a traditional one for yukata. If you look closely you can see the top view shapes of purple goldfish. The red circles represent ripples on the water (probably from the goldfish swimming) and the blue river-swirls represent the rest of the water. The image of fancy goldfish swimming in a shallow pond is one that is strongly in the Japanese aesthetic.
This simple red obi literally matches anything (as red is neutral in traditional kimono schools) but here it calls attention to the circle motif as well as adding a punch of festive color.
In his project ‘Spirit Photographs—Wireless Spectre’, Newcastle University student Luis Hernan used long exposure photography to bring WiFi signals to life, resulting in a photo series of colorful light trails.
