Subject

Description

Shooshie Sulaiman is researching and creating a symbolic gesture of a rubber plantation through nine rubber trees. The trees are from Malaysia and the amount represents the number of the first nine seedlings that made their way from Singapore to Malaysia in 1870s. Today Malaysia is one of the leading countries that supplies rubber to the world, and hence contributing to the the boom in local economic growth.

The ephemeral element of the whole idea and process of the project is to investigate Southeast Asia's ancestors and technologies in a cultural pattern that can bring hope and understanding to a new legacy. This project also attempts to pursue questions of property, public space and ecology and to understand more about the authority that claim the land and the sky.
