Artist’s interpretation
[SITES] each site representing ‘creation’ (APW) and ‘being’ (NAG), a port of entry/ exit for local authenticity. Attachment to the place of origin (creation) in transit and connection to place of debarkation (being).

A nautical rope is moored on a symbolic ‘dock’ (initially the tiang seri) of each site and is unravelled at it’s end. The ‘dock’ represents a point of origin, of local authenticity. Both docks becoming/ regeneration as new points of origin as the transition/ travel.

Jute, strings and colour threads are weaved to the ends and spread out across the floor surrounding the ‘dock’. Thread represents the connection, attachment, trail, time, lineal being, parallel, it’s fragility, fragile existence between the two spaces (origin and destiny). Open ended journey.

[INTERACTION] Spools of colour thread are on display, the viewers are invited to unspool threads as the make their journey off site. the threads from APW to NAG is a representation of a timeline, parallel travel, lineal perspective. paths through modernity/ city of spaces of local authenticity meet & merge, a transient urban & suburban setting.
