◄ Lim Kok Yoong – Operasi Cas­sava 3.0

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Arts & Culture -

‘Operasi Cas­sava’ first started as an on­line par­tic­i­pa­tory ar­chive where the artist asked Malaysians to send in any story they had sur­round­ing the cas­sava plant (bet­ter known as ubi kayu). Why cas­sava? This is largely be­cause of how in­te­grated the plant is in our col­lec­tive con­scious­ness; apart from be­ing an in­gre­di­ent in many lo­cal del­i­ca­cies, it was also once an im­por­tant source of nu­tri­ents dur­ing the Ja­panese oc­cu­pa­tion. In this work, the crowd­sourced sto­ries are con­nected to cy­ber­netic cas­savas – as the mois­ture of the plant dis­si­pates the clarity and the opac­ity of the text will start to de­crease.
