students installation exhibition via KlPac

What fascinating about this installation are, it is a visual indicator to the wind flows across the area














































It took the students almost a week to complete this installation as part of their first 'ice breaking' project assignment. I was fortunate to oversee the whole progress and development for each installations. Kudos on the final results of the overall work. Three groups consisting a collaboration in between the third year and the first year architecture students from Taylor College have came up with a very interesting idea by using simple basic materials that you could get in the hardware store.

Men-on-pause: The trials and tribulations of a non-conformist


written by Nik Nadzru Iskandar

Definition:
The cessation of a (late-20's/early-30's Malay) male's "productive" system, in their ongoing individual search for a far greater goal in life.

_Just got back from a 'gebang-gebang tepi mamak' session with Abg Long, my maternal cousin; having our usual discussions on this and that, upon which we came across an epiphany of sorts of on our current predicament in life.

You see, we are urban Malay male in our late-20's/early 30's who have literally forsaken the teachings passed on from our Fathers, Moms, Uncles and Aunts; and decided for once in our life, we'd do things our way.

Something to look forward to, this year.
From the same people who produce the documentary 'Helvetica'.



I hope their next subject will be about Architecture. Its seems inevitable for not continuing the chronology of design evolutions. One could hope so for that day to come.. *crossing fingers.


*The documentary Helvetica will be telecast in PBS and usually they will include the webcast version as well.

New year have surpassed its countdown.
It seems there is no indication of me getting my system back to normal in a zippy. I have been struggling to keep my working files from overwhelming the available spaces but like all good things that must come to an end the laptop HD finally crashed a few weeks before the new year. On the day I walk to the data recovery centre, the friendly efficient technicians informed of the similar HD model that he'd received today from another customer.

Coincidence?, or perhaps a sign of massive expiry for all the similar models HD? Based on our chit-chat while I glimpse across his office where stacks of HD in various type that piles in a corner, one could say if its a HD managed to surpassed over three years of continuous daily beatings of heavy usage especially by users in the graphical visual industries the hardisk have performed what it was made for. In a way I agreed, the system and the HD never failed and always there to serve me. A sign of knowing that its about to come to an end are, the HD takes longer time to save even a simple text files.

Its is also a sign that nothing last forever, especially in the digital world, where anything can be reset by a simple click of a button or simply by accidentally knocking your digital medium down to the floor *(don't give it a try just to find out whether it still works if yu are not sure). A Buddhist friends says to me that despite of our fragile existence, its a process towards a reincarnation, a rebirth, a new beginning.
The end of the HD also signifies changes from a cramp HD to a larger space its a good thing but it is also a caution to not place your TRUST fully on technology and always have a back up, guess in a away we could relate this with our very own life.

And that's how I look for in the year 2009, with this experience and a more positive and fresh outlook towards upcoming challenges and opportunities despite of the gloomy outlook on worlds economy, global warming, ongoing tragedies of war and death.

Design and posting of new works and outstanding writings of various trips and events will be resuming shortly.

To anyone outhere, have a great challenging new year!
