◄ Lim Kok Yoong – Operasi Cassava 3.0
‘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.
