“A passion for creating new things led me to establish Amalgamated Composition since 2021. It consists of a series of kinetic sculpture prototypes created with waste and donated materials as a means to change perceptions and ideas about them. ”

Profile Picture
Ayesha Thapa (Elsha)Elsha began her career as a fashion designer in Mumbai, India. During her time in India and Nepal, she taught, participated in fashion shows, styled magazine covers, and ran her own business. She encountered the world of Visual Arts at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia. Her desire to create something original and different prompted her to explore the idea of creating kinetic art while studying at OCAD University, Toronto, Canada. A number of prototypes of kinetic sculptures have been developed by her research, and she continues to develop different forms of kinetic sculpture. "Rat race" is Amalgamated Composition's debut collection. A set of three performative kinetic sculptures were developed and titled Run, Runn, and Runnn respectively.
