When there’s no hard and fast rules or limits to what we could create, there must be something else worth putting time in besides the routine bread-and-butter. Lain-Lain (‘miscellaneuos’ in Malay) depicts the spontaneous and playful attitude in the process of creating while exploring the possibilities of the everyday objects, and matter that often go unnoticed through graphic elements and storytelling; in an attempt to give them new meanings that could hopefully inspire us to keep our minds at play and ideas going, little by little.
