3D Work, 2021
Women are constant jugglers, trying to balance between work, life and passion. Just like the extra dose of the ‘X’ chromosome in the female genes, women, as working mothers, wives, daughters and sisters, need an extra dose of energy constantly to juggle the multiple roles that they choose to play.
Likened to a game of pinball, the harder one pulls the plunger to shoot the ball, the more hits it is likely to get. Similarly for women, the more energy and excitement (boing) they put into playing their multiple roles, the more rewarding they feel at the end of it all from hitting all their target.
