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 have done.
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.
