Rimba Nusa (Jungles of Nusa)

My intention is to create the sensation of being under a forest canopy. It attempts to re create a man-made forest from man-made materials. Inspired by the surrounding massive construction “development” Johor is going through, this work uses building materials to mimic a forest. The contrast between using industrial materials like UPVC pipes yet it casts shadows that we associate with trees, branches and nature. The artwork also emits a soundscape that mimics nature and invites visitors to interact with its sound-making.

The installation is located popular waiting area spot at Medini Mall.

There is no instructions on how to "play" with this artpiece, thus allowing the visitors to discover ways to interact on their own.

I also wanted adults to play with kids, so sound pieces were placed at different heights.
