Cultural Awareness, Education & Understanding

Malaysians belong to uncountable cultures and traditions. That is just how different and diverse we are as a nation. We believe to work in ways to bring love and understanding through through art, documentary or short films for our future generations.  

 UNITING MALAYSIANS 

THROUGH FOOD

we slowly revealed 60 artworks to convey the Malaysian message across that many of us are truly

 

'Hungry for a Better Malaysia'.

SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING 

WITH DR RENARD SIEW 

Single-use plastics for food packaging has filled our landfills to the brim. But it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s about time we start making a difference. Discover what Malaysians are doing in our own backyard. The Rojak Projek is in collaboration with Dr Renard Siew to spark the #sustainablepackaging revolution in our Malaysian society.

#ORANGASLI

The forests means everything to the Orang Asli community. It is more than just a source of food, water, a place to live, a wellspring for income and to some a spiritual sanctuary...

LIST OF ETHNICITY WE FOUND IN MALAYSIA

(2019)

If we can name three races in Malaysia, why can’t we name them all (including those who are of mixed race)? We believe it is time for our generation to take it to the next level in rediscovering and getting to know our Malaysian people better.

OUR CONCEPT from colour-blindness to colour-embracing
● logo design
by DESIGNLABOUR
● the rojak party
private EVENTs AT HOME capturing friends and new friends from diverse backgrounds
 
● conceptual artworks
IN THE MAKINg
   > created 60 artworks
   > to construct the artworks, we first
      had to filter through and separate
      each ingredient of the dish we were
      creating.
   > the artwork creation process begun
      from a sketched concept which we
      experimented on and eventually led
      us to collecting more portraits to
      create. We then sketched out the
      portrait outline, search and bought
      food, created the artworks,
      documented / captured the artwork
      via photography (because food can't
      be kept), eating our created
      artworks or packing it to share with
      our friends and family (because
      sharing is caring!), clean up and we
      then do a digital clean up on the
      messy parts on our computers.
