art | seni
naturally drawn to expressing in different forms, art has also been an extension of my evolution from experiences in design. Combining my work’s social-inclusivity aspect and inner-self exploration. While trying to balance the functionality in the form. Installation/ Optics/ Portraiture

  kamra e faoree

KANTA | kamra e faoree
explores the building of a 'century old' instant camera. A camera obscura & darkroom. Kanta (which means 'lens' in Malay) is made from salvaged & waste materials. an insight into ourselves through the 'lens' by which we see others. a project with multi-layer objectives, a search into identity and the unbecoming of it.

This project was originally inspired by the Afghan Box Camera Project, with support from the Krishen Jit Astro Fund.

design

design | desain
communication design is my core practise. although limiting in the way design is perceived as a mere graphic extention, I believe it can be so much more. functionality and form in perfect balance, curiousity being my greatest strength and weakness. design is at it’s best when it is invisible.
  photography

photography | fotografi
my exploration into photography runs parallel to my design approach, mainly directive with the question of why rather than aesthetics. It is documentative, trying to capture meaning through sight.
  bicycle

bicycle | basikal
bicycles are my latest obsession. sourcing bicycles from small towns and villages, based on designs unchanged forover a century. these bicycles represents so much more than the simplicity of good design.
  junkie

junkie | pencandu
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.
 

vowel | vokal
although not in anyway connected to the categories of work that I’ve produced. I find these letters representing each sound an interesting way in helping me bring order to the what I’ve experienced. vowels of my life’s concentrate. (read more)
