Within the last few years, nothing
has made quite such a dramatic impact on the natural Malaysian
landscape around me, as large scale land reclamations
It's been both fascinating and disturbing
to witness how fast once familiar scenes of 'home', have
been transformed and or completely destroyed. For this
to happen, vast amounts of sand has been mined, transported
and dispersed out to sea and along coastal areas, creating
strange new land forms where once none had been.
My project covers five active reclamation sites capturing
them from land and sea. I'm interested in how these manufactured
forms come into being and the process of them becoming
a part of the working landscape. As to whether they are
ultimately successful in achieving this state, remains
to be seen.
