–>What can we consider our (Malaysian) identity? We do have Proton which is said by our ex-Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad as Malaysian National Identity. But how is Proton now? Is Proton surviving in the globalisation market? it seems like Proton is having quite a hard time struggling to survive in the global market. And we also have Malaysian Airline System (MAS). That is also Malaysian National Identity. Although MAS is also struggling to survive. How about Petronas Twin Tower? Yes indeed, i guess we can acknowledge that Petronas Twin Tower is Malaysian National Identity too. And KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport).

But this is a huge things..i mean big project…what about our local product that can be consider as our identity? What is Malaysian Product?
I’m trying to identity what can we called Malaysian Identity? What is our national identity? What is our cultural Identity? In my project base research, these are the things that i should identify…before i start another project i guess…Well that what i think at this i will start doing collecting images of these and try and put this images together as a collage or in other medium…perhaps exploring this images is different ways..

  1. hi there…came across this web, found it quite useful..
    when u talk about identity..i found it’s a bit hard to explain…we got our own identity but most of us prefer to adopt other identity and appreciate it for no reason…i dont want to talk about our country’s mega project since there are lots of ‘personal interest’ there…:) but most of them constructed and claimed for nation….since i am a malay i dont see much changes in our life quality…
