b. Malaysia. My practice involves investigating the process of cultural translation within the context of postcolonialism. I am interested in examining the residues of this process in which attempts to translate or assimilate was made but at times result in an unexpected and incoherent manner. I collect cultural artefacts and symbols, subject to my current place of residence; the site will be the site for artistic exploration and excavation. Subsequently, the cultural meanings will be studied through the socio-political axis juxtaposed by selective individual nostalgia. I am particularly interested in exploring the vernacular.
