graphic design
and photography

visual development through

experiments | eksperimen
exploration into techniques
and fusing different forms and ideas. artform journals commercial and personal explorations. print explorations into old and new methods of getting a message onto a substrate. imagery features exploration within an optical nature.
 

instruments | instrumen
basically consist of the apparatus, my tools. the physical extentions to create. optical are mainly cameras, the lgith and darkroom. audible are musical instruments.
 

obtention | koleksi
collection of inanimate objects from specific moments. mémoire collection of flora junkie is an effort at finding little nostalgias of everyday items, unique and mostly overlooked. shunned as unfit for modern living. marketing these as a better representation of malaysia, and unfortunately also dying trades. bicycle is part of my junk store collection, existing as a category on it’s own. patiently researched and sourced parts, modifying without changing their novelty.
 

upcycle | kitar semula
upcycle is a new term from a project called recycolution. it is a wonder at how much we waste to create just to use and dispose, even with recycling. in every aspect this methodology needs to change. consumeristics nature of the mindless caps. upcycle are items created from dr. victor’s technique of reviving dead parts into new beings. so far just a handful of items used in the studio.
  the chronology of my curiosities and practise modules.

researching into different language scripts used in malaysia. Jawi is derived from the arabic alphabet, using phonetics to spell malay words. tamil characters also works phonetically and most south east asian countries share the same script style. chinese characters are the only ones derived from an ideographic nature. the vast types of scripts and languages, such rich culture but yet a primitive way to communicate. the future of language, the spoken and the written word. is it the medium, the message or the mind which limits.

film strip | rentetan foto
this is the full film strip scanned continuosly. it is my 2nd film roll taken from the kodak brownie special six-16. experimented with multiple exposures and a winding technique to produce a continuos image (frame 32 - 36 / 28 - 31). the next 2 columns are excerpts of the category taken from the experiments.









box cameras are part of my antique camera collection. I've repaired and serviced all of them to working standards, modifying some to fit 120 or 135 formats since the films they use are mostly obselete now. (experiments/imagery)









multiple exposures are a great artform technique, a sort of instant montage. mastering of light and shadow areas is important. I mainly explore this technique with film since this feature is not available on my canon DSLR. though I've found a way to produce it through photoshop. (experiments/imagery)









frame 32 - 36
taken from my window of the 10th floor in HDB bukit batok, singapore. the mrt tracks and street scene at night. experimented with multiple esposures and controlled twirling with a winding technique to produce a continuos image.

frame 24 - 27
taken from the window kenn & kath's apartment window, wangsa heights. facing towards melawati area and the MRR2 highway visible. the red areas caused by the light leaks from the film count window.

brownie special six-16
manufactured in 1938 by kodak. using a film format 616 which was discontinued 1984. I’ve managed to take the camera apart, serviced and in great working condition. taken a few rolls with 135 format, and have some ideas how to use 120. acquired this and the 3 following cameras for rm50 each. basic mechanism makes them all very easy to use, I’ll definitely get some interesting images from these range.

canon ftql
first introduced in 1966, canon ftql is a manual 35mm SLR camera. horizontal cloth shutter, needle meter with microprism focusing. I’ve sourced a 50mm ƒ1.8 and a 28mm ƒ2.8 lenses. also a national PE-145 flash unit. purchased around 2005 for a little over rm300. I love this camera and it is still my primary 35mm.

darkroom | bilik gelap
my first print, and my first encounter with the magic of the darkroom. After this exposure, I was eternally hooked. photography has evolved into a different world for me to explore and drown myself into. (archives/projects)

seagull 4a-105
my first medium format camera. workhorse through my college years. this model dates back from the late 60s. probably a knockoff from japanese and german models. spots a 75mm lense (which is about 50mm on a 135 format), produced by Shanghai Camera Factory, it’s a basic working TLR camera, totally manual without any light metering device. I bought this camera at the start of 2004 for around rm300. I love the simplicity & the usability, it still is one of my favourite in my collection, though I have not used it for sometime. given away during christmas 2010.
