Little Beings is a personal art project that centres around the topic of gut feelings. It is a series of characters that tell the stories of our gut feelings that are happening within our subconscious minds. The series is 3D rendered art toy figurines, which depict various gut feelings in different colours and designs suited to the characters. The project challenges the notion that gut feelings are irrational and unreliable. They serve as a reminder that intuition is a powerful tool that should not be dismissed or ignored. Each figurine represents a different gut feeling, Companion, Hero, Gambler, and Caregiver, and tells true stories based on real-life experiences.
This sixth sense of ours can be a valuable tool in certain circumstances. However, this has been dusted under the carpet and have been overlooked as it is not logical and scientifically proven yet. Although gut feelings are not always reliable, most people still make decisions based on their gut feelings to help them navigate complex situations.
The project uses an online platform to serve as a space to tell the stories of each character and display the process of how each character tackles problems.
Overall, the personal art project aims to spark a conversation among Generation Z about the significance of gut feelings. Using art toy figurines and an online platform, the project hopes to inspire individuals to trust their instincts and recognise the power of intuition in their daily lives. Hence, gaining more self-confidence to make better decisions.

ADM Grad Show, I designed a space for the public to appreciate the work I have done for each of my characters. A projection of characters was displayed to go through the features and abilities of the gut feelings. Blind Packs were made for the public to attempt and try their luck on which characters they might get. This also depends on their gut feelings to see if they are fated with their preferred character.
