CAN - the book

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.

This book is a collection of images from an artist in-residence experience at 'Lost Generation Space' Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 2008. The images are from the performance/installation for 'Bangun – Abandon Project' (Feb. 1-2-3) and around the abandoned buildings site. CAN transforms the forgotten into the precious. Years of fallen, dirty debris are carefully wrapped for the audience to take away as a souvenir of an abandoned piece of KL history. The souvenirs and myself are protected from further deterioration by plastic, fruity tablecloths.
