2D sem 2 project 2 – Perspective – Research/interpretation.

This project is about different perspective on an item,

a Vegetable to a vegetarian is food

a Vegetable to a carnivore is Food farm

it would be a funner project if it were the different perspective from an item,

a vegetarian to a Vegetable is murderer

a Carnivore to a Vegetable is Saviour

So we are required to think about the many perspective on a single item, not many perspective From the item. We are looking at a things from many different perspective, not looking at different things from one perspective. although i prefer the later, but oh well, I’ll do what I should.

After thinking about different possibilities, the idea of “I need to find a interesting object so that I can have many interesting perspective of it.” as a starting point is very inefficient. Because what make this project interesting is never the “object” but the “perspective” of the object and hence this title”PERSPECTIVE” as project title instead of “OBJECT” . NOW I KNOW~

I shall not start the project by thinking about “INTERESTING OBJECT” as an object that is too interesting will restrict my creativity into a small box. SO~ I will start the project by thinking about “WEIRD PERSPECTIVE”. 

“Object” that “Subject” dont have
food to the starving
money to the poor
love to the widow

“Object” that “Subject” dont want
responsibility to the irresponsible
homework to the student
bills to anybody

“Object” that “Subject” wants
Kids to the infertile couple
Freedom to the inmates
legs to the disabled

“Object” that “Subject” survive on
water to human
rope to bungee jumper
garbage to garbage collector

“Object” and “Subject” are of good terms
paper to glue
photo to frame
Ice to Martell

“Object” and “Subject” that are in the same environment
Forest to the tiger
planes to the birds
principle to the teacher

“Object” and “Subject” hate each other
communism to capitalism
light to dark
fire to ice

“Object” and “Subject” that have totally no relationship
shoe to fish
cannon to cup
coffee to elephant


Approach 2 – Provocative object, an Provocative subject will have a different result no matter who is looking at it. (and possibly making me a bad person by presenting it)

-Lees family
-Donald Trump
-Kim Jung ill
-Tom Cruise
-Emma Watson
-Justin Bieber

The deceased
-Michael Jackson
-Bruce Lee

Approach 3 – philosophical question, A philosophical question will have a different meaning to everything, which simply said, these are what I meant “Interesting object”



SO! after a Big list of object and perspective i could use, I chose a few potential object which i could use.

Kids from the point of view of parent is cute
Kids from the point of view of teenager is annoying
Kids from the point of view of infertile couple is envy

Bangladeshi from the point of view of Mustafa is income
Bangladeshi from the point of view of Racist is not important
Bangladeshi from the point of view of development is essential

Bangladeshi from the point of view of cricket is sunday
Bangladeshi from the point of view of hostel is full
Bangladeshi from the point of view of pants is full of paint


After Listing 3 possible set of 18 I might use,
it seems like the order which I list it is in provocative order,
Kid is not provocative, Buddha is slightly provocative and Bangladeshi is VERY provocative.
And in my 24 years or experiences, always choose the one in the middle as there are more room for exploration (and salvage) because if I choose the VERY PROVOCATIVE one, I might not be able to salvage it which leads to deadly consequences(atleast for me)

now, let the Buddha bless me.


Buddha will always bless his devotee so here you go.
I am now a devotee



the 6/18 I chose

Buddha from the point of view of Jesus is brother
Buddha from the point of view of Lotus is You are heavy
Buddha from the point of view of Sun Wu Kong is afraid
Buddha from the point of view of Art history is you need to know
Buddha from the point of view of Space is omnipresence



Lore 7: Repository – Radio.

In Repository097, the idea of TV only exist in history textbook as there are no TV channel and TV set available in the Repository, the only source of entertainment and media is from the radio which is played through the speaker that can be found in all rooms and can be switch on/off by a knob in every room.

The radio station of R097 lies at the top of Main Station above the Pier and is running by a 12 group of broadcasters who works 24/7, keeping the radio and spreading information throughout R097, in some sort, they are the control room within R097 who took control of the media and some said propaganda is part of their existence.

Radio Frequency is a good way to communicate within different repository as the frequency are not greatly affected by the radioactive environment, so the only way to communicate with the outside world of R097 is through Radio transmission, which they never replied even after information is received because R097 is a secret Repository built and their existence is known by little.

Chapter 3: Repository – The earth above sea.

After 2 hours in the sonic submarine the engine turned off and it docked at the abandon pier of Port Elizibeth in South Africa. The submarine hatch open and it is raining heavily outside, Aurora and Arisampat who are wearing the air mask looked at the downpour outside and look at each other and seems to be in shock.

Aurora and Arisampat has never seen rain in their life, they heard about it alot and was taught about it since young, they know exactly how rain is formed and the science behind it, in reality, the fun in practice far exceed theory. Getting so excited, they took all of their belongings and jumped off the submarine without thanking the captain.



Stepping on a puddle of water and getting wet has never felt so refreshing before, it seems so magical that there is no ceiling and rain fall down from above, they had never seen the sky before, heard about it but their first time seeing it, the grayish mass of sky that is showering them water is so much better than the ceiling, this is too good!

The rain splashes against their skin and there is a weird tingly sensation that they had never felt before, the sensation of the wind brushing against their skin so naturally, so cold.

Double A danced in the rain and totally forgotten what Theron told them “The mycoplankon essence will be washed off in the rain”. After minutes in the rain, they start to feel a burning sensation on their skin, the rain is highly acidic and they know they shouldn’t stay in the rain and started running towards what seems like the city as the rain blurred their vision. Arisampat thought she saw a flash of light in the city while she was sprinting, as they sprint in the painful rain, the blurred city gets nearer and clearer, they could see a giant sign -Trex Mart-


Double A ran towards it and pushed the heavy door, it opened.

It is dark inside and they could see rows and rows of fallen shelves, a few counters and right beside the entrance there is a big metallic cabinet that look like an old power generator with a handle on it, Arisampat try to pull the handle, after a few time, the power generator run by its own and few moments later, the light in the mart flickers and lighted up row by row with most of the lights not lighting up after it flickers.

The dim yellowish light enable Double A to see the interior of the mart, mart is in a chaos as all the shelves fell onto the ground with many human skeletons. It seems like there are useful things lying around as this is a big mart that sells almost anything. There is a big old fashion radio that seems to stand out because there is almost no dust on it, sitting on the counter nearest to the entrance.

What will you do?

Lore 6: Repository – Jeremiad Day.

On September 21, 2114, the major countries in the world commenced a brief but rapid exchange of nuclear strikes, the war lasted for only two hours and nuclear was dropped on Karagandy of Kazakhstan, Nagoya of japan, Khartoum of Sudan, Brisbane of Australia, Asuncion of Paraguay, Austin of Texas and Edmonton of Alberta. These 7 deadly nuclear affected the world as chemical waste, radiation and shock-wave spreaded across the globe, making the surface of the earth inhospitable.

Humanity survived but struggled to do so, Survivors lives in a bunker named Repository which was build by the World Government to shelter citizens across the world in the event of natural or man-made disasters.

September 21, the day which survivors shifted from their home to the Repository, many survivors were killed on this day, not by the nuclear war, but by other survivors who were desperate to get into the Repository. A century after the great war, Jeremiad Day serves as a reminder of conflicts, but as twisted as it seems, everyone in Repository is the decedent of those who might killed someone just to get into repository, and nonetheless, the survivors. This is the day to celebrate their survivor ancestors of surviving, and in Repository097, it is a day of sports competition within the repository, Inhabitants representing their block competes with each others and this is the biggest event of the year. The highlight of the event: Submarine Race.

Lore 5: Repository – The Law of the privileged(LOTP)

The first Law that existed in Repository097 was the Law of the Privileged Ones(LOTPO),

The Privileged Ones (PO) are those who are class S and above. it include the title of Chief of Justice, Strategist, Governors, Chief in Command, General and Heroes.

As a PO, they hold the power to sentence anyone in their sector to punishments, removing trackers, captivity, exile, or even death. They have the power to use any resource in any sector unless the PO in that given sector denies their usage. PO also have the ability to use fire even in a confine space

PO can only be judged by higher authority of their own sector, if there are no higher authority in their sector, they would be in judiciary of their peers holding the same authority in their sector, and if there are no such person, they would not be sentenced even if they break the law.

The LOTPO is the only law during the start of Repository097, all other laws were added by PO in the sector.

2D Sem 2 Project 1 – TYPO – Final 4


I am a Vandaliser2016-02-15 19e3

The most Straightforward piece among my 4 final, self explanatory, Yellow is used because it is the loudest and brightest colour, i want it to have the BANG effect, the red splutter in the middle bring out the yellow even more.

I am a 3D Artist
2016-02-14 23e4

I really like the effect of this piece, if I separate them into pieces, it would not look anywhere nice, but if I stack them together, the 3D effect is really striking. especially the drop shadow between each layers add to the effect!

I am Trypophobic
2016-02-15 19e2

Really very disturbing for me, but the more I look at it, the more OK I become. Because I look at it so much when making it, I kind of force myself to fight my slight phobia and overcome it just a bit.

I am an Electrician2016-02-15 19e12016-02-15e2

Looking at the real thing, the background is gold, therefore the yellow LED fade with the background, making the red appear slightly more red than it is. I think the knob is a very cool effect as anything that allows interactions would better having none.

2D Sem 2 Project 1 – TYPO – Process/execution/Experimentation

I Am The President

I REALLLLYYYY like this one, but I think I am not going to use this as one of my final as the typo of this work isnt really showint that i am the president, whats doing the work is the overall image which is a ripoff of $10 Singapore note, which made this really funny!

I Am a Ninjaninja

My initial idea was to use it as black on black, because the small letter ‘e’ and the capital letter ‘N’ forms a human shape, and the shape of ‘e’remind me of a ninja which fits into my black on black idea, after some exploration in the font and such, this is the result of experimentation, the background image is one of the best i could find, however the resolution kind of destroy it, maybe gonna find some other background for it or discard this totally.

I Am a VandaliserVandaliser

Another potential piece as a final, graffiti is the first thing that came to my mind when talking about typography, because i used to like the style of graffiti painting, the “illegal” part of it makes it VERY EXCITING!! *i had not done it btw* another reason i liked graffiti is the vibrancy in most of the street graffiti, it is loud, expressive and sometime aggressive, which i think its great as a form of expression as well as a great art.

I Am a 3D Artist2016-01-14 22.34.03

Wind is my English name! I used it when I was backpacking as the Ang Mor cant really pronounce Zi Feng, so the Feng = Wind.

At first i draw the type by hand, afterward I gave up and use masking instead, its more accurate this way!  carefully measure up the centralization and traced it using acrylic paint, why blue? because its the wind. wind feels bluish for me if i have to give it a colour.
2016-01-15 14.04.09Why dandelion? because Wind cant really be seen and something need to be used to show it, something classy and elegant like dandelion is used to give the feeling of a cool breeze (not tornado or hurricane!)

Spent alot of time just to do this, total of 10 layers of acrylic, painted each layer by layer, one of the easier part is the alignment of every layer and paint (easy as in skill, totally not easy as in time wise.), the harder part is to get the dust off between every layer..( difficult in skill & time wise, 2 surface each piece, after I cleaned the bottom of the top layer, I have to re-clean the top of the bottom layer again, removing all fingerprint and dust isnt easy, imagine sticking 20 piece of screen protector on your phone without any dust in between, its crazy!!)


I Am There2016-01-18 22.18.40

Started on the idea of White on White, tiny little font in the middle of huge blank background (not really, its just a A5, so tiny font will do) carefully cut out 1mm styrene sheet of my name.. e n g is extra difficult to cut due to the curve and the inside angle. lots of trimming must be done.

As I need the shadow to drop at certain angle, I need to carefully place the typo so it do not sit in the dead center of the A5, I have to take in the consideration of where the shadow will fall and my centralized position of the typo will be “popout text + shadow” it seems like a minute difference, but it is these minute difference differentiate a perfect piece from a regular ones. So in conclusion, the position of the typo will be slightly to the top left of the “supposed center” to counter the distance of the drop shadow created.
2016-01-22 09.37.59 sticking cutted out styrene name on A5 styrene sheet by using the thin cement which is used to build plastic model, it simply melts the styrene and fused together when it dries.2016-01-22 09.38.27 2016-01-22 10.03.12 Airbrushing white on white on white just to remove any difference in texture, imperfection during cutting and make sure it look like its popping out from the paper. BUT SOMETIMES ACCIDENT HAPPENS!!!2016-01-22 10.23.37After the accident happens, i have to sand the thing down and rework it.
2016-01-22 10.07.00resume airbrushing after sanding.

I Am Old

oldthis is an illustrator file which i am going to transfer it by lino printing 
and this is what i am going to carve on the lino. still thinking about the way to transfer the print accurately. hmmm i’ll see what i can do..

I Am an Electrician

Electrician always start to learn circuit using the most basic exercise, to learn how to light up LED lights. seems easy but theres some calculation to be done so as not to burn your LEDs, which i burnt a few due to my inexperience.

2016-01-13 09.25.04
2016-01-15 10.46.32

I tried to form the word FENG on the bread board but its not sufficient to do so so i guess i need more LEDs (round instead of rectangular) a bigger board, which after some research online, there is no breadboard(the white plate which i stick my LEDS onto it) thats so big, i need to buy  circuit board and solder one by one. THIS WILL BE HARD! i’ll see what i can do.

I Am a Gardener

2016-01-23 21.54.51The most time consuming process, the carving out of the leaves.

2016-01-23 22.08.31 this is how it looks right after cutting out2016-01-23 22.20.07 and this is how it looks after the “rolling” of the leaves2016-01-23 22.23.06and against a lighter shade of green as backing, i kind of liked this and looking at the “g” it gave me another idea of I Am.. which is…..

I Am a Trypophobic

2D Sem 2 Project 1 – TYPO – Process/execution/Experimentation Part 2

I Am an Electrician Part 2

2016-01-26 20.05.16

I bought my LEDs, i need to calculate the power required to light up 10 LED in a series and parallel them in a series of 10s, according to calculation, it wont work as there is not enough power from 4 AA batteries to light up 10 LED in series, but in practical, they light up fine and i don’t know why. but atleast it works~~ WOOOOOO~

2016-01-26 20.27.38

so now i have to count how many LED I need in total, after calculations, theres 17 column and 10 row, so… 170 LEDs!!! OMGGGGG! each LED has 2 leg and i need to solder 340 times!! + the 17 resistor with 2 side, that makes 374 solders! and 374 is excluding the holes i need to solder to joint everything……… TIME CONSUMING!!! but i’ll do it.

2016-02-10 23.51.03

After calculating the amount of LED i need, now i need to mark out every position of the LED so as to not make mistake when i solder.(the gold ones are covered with heat resistance tape

2016-02-11 09.44.46

Plot my Red LED first, so i dont mix them up after i start to solder, this took alot of time even i havent start soldering as i need to cut the leg of the LEDs and bent them so they sit there without falling off.

2016-02-11 11.35.44

Now the Yellow LEDs

2016-02-11 12.05.23


2016-02-11 12.06.27

does it remind you of star wars’s storm troopers? nah i dident watch star wars but it remind me of them. neatly organised round white helmets. *insert darthvader theme song*2016-02-11 22.47.47Look at my stormtrooper’s leg, LOTS OF THEM! 340 to be exact, this is the massacre to their legs, and to my legs too, i think some flew all over my room and i wont be surprised to step on a few this few days.

2016-02-12 00.32.50the hard part will be soldering, SUPER TIME CONSUMING! there are 17 rows, but each LED has 2 leg, so i need to solder 34 rows WITHOUT MISTAKE!
2016-02-12 18.13.05

ANNNNNNDDDD I accidentally burnt out whole row of LEDs (10) after soldering so now i need to buy desolderer and learn how to desolder my LED to replace them…. STUPID ME!

2016-02-12 19.50.16Its hard work and SUPER time consuming but everytime I test it, I got this sense of achievement, LOOK AT MY LIGHTED UP STORM TROOPERSSSS~~

I Am a Sailor

2016-01-16 22.26.49I really liked this, but there is no typographic portrait in this so I cant really use this, the text here doesnt show that I am a sailor. so I came up with the 2nd version.
2016-02-02 09.35.21

This definitely suit the category of typographic portrait but I dont really like it anymore as it lack the “daring” and “thrilling” part for me.

I Am Hallucinating

2016-01-16 20.37.15Hallucinating is me in my own world, so I could see vibrant colours which doesnt really make sense and I couldn’t know how will it look like until i finished it. It is a mix of glue and acrylic paint on thick clear plastic sheet. Left is the plastic sheet and right is after I stamped it on paper.

2016-02-14 23.15.35 2016-02-14 23.15.47

I redo it a few times to see more variation and nope. 2016-02-14 23.16.09

I kind of like the one at right, but nope, its not good enough to be used as my final.

I Am Old Part 2

2016-01-26 14.49.15The finished lino cut.
2016-02-02 09.04.44Stamp them on old looking paper which I make by dappling kopi o kosong onto the paper. I REALLLLYY like this as i put some effort into it, but the final result didn’t have the “Old” in my “ONG ZI FENG” so i didn’t use this as final. (Lucky the project require 4 final as opposed to 6 =DD) HAHAHA~

I Am Trypophobic Part 2

2016-02-02 17.37.04

My clay cracked after it dried so I need to fix all cracks using Tamiya putty to make sure they don’t crack again.

2016-02-03 08.25.54after I fixed all my cracks, I need to spray them into skin colour to give the ITCH that I am feeling right now. I think its more disgusting when it is skin colour, because we can relate to it, imagine them growing on your scalp….. yes…. your head is itchy now.
2016-02-03 08.31.25

The done piece. now i need to add depth, blood, “disgusting” and “itch” to it.

2016-02-03 09.29.10

some shading, shadow and abit of dried blood.

2016-02-10 22.26.04

after i coat it with a layer of white glue to give it a slight shine + MORE BLOOD IN THE HOLES OMGGGGGGGGG! I AM DYINGGG



Lore 4 : Repository – Above the sea- African continent.

This was Durban in South Africa before the great war and most of it still stands, however there are no electricity in the city and no living above ground. The only location which is populated is the Repository built under Fox Stadium : Repository 33


The situation in the four continents differ vastly, Africa, America, Asia and Europe are never the same as what it was in year 2000 AD

The world climate changes drastically due to the great war, Africa received higher rainfall because the nuclear detonated in Khartoum of Sudan turn sudan into an urban heat island (UHI) that is significantly warmer than its surrounding rural areas, causing it to lift the air which resulted in pulling the atmospheric water vapor from the southern ocean inwards into Africa, turning Africa rainfall to be higher than the rest of the world.

Most of the major city buildings before the Great war are still standing except for those in the 7 nuclear sites which a created a radioactive cater that nothing natural could survive anywhere near the site. Before the Great war, Africa developed faster than the rest of the world and hence their technological advancement surpasses japan in terms of transportation and housing.
