Stream time: a virtual walk in KL and ICT theatre's 'Play' finale


VIRTUAL EXHIBITION: THE BLIND MEN AND THE ELEPHANT, IN KUALA LUMPUR

Date and time: Ongoing

Close your eyes. Imagine you are in downtown Kuala Lumpur. There are different sounds around you. Listen carefully. What do you hear?

Graphic designer/artist Yap Weng Nam's The Blind Men & The Elephant, In Kuala Lumpur is a virtual interactive installation that explores the sounds of a location in Kuala Lumpur through two devices simultaneously: the computer and smartphone/tablet.

This new work reflects on how Kuala Lumpur is a city that is constantly disappearing, renewing and evolving. "Every person who experiences the city carries a unique but limited memory and truth of it. To piece the city’s larger narrative, we can’t merely perceive it alone - we will have to do it collectively," reads a statement about this project.
