Final Project - Invisible Cities RE-SYNTHesized: An Experiment
Exercise 1 is an attempt to adapt literature into graphics/visual expression of the city, while Exercise 2 is an attempt to ‘see’ the ordinary city in an extraordinary or unique way. The final project is a synthesis of the surrealism and imaginary in Exercise 1, and the realism and physical fabric of the urban conditions in Exercise 2. It stretches further the idea of ‘adaptation’ in the style of how a film maker would overlay an imaginary (utopian/dystopian) city into the real space. In brief, this project is about the exploration of an adaptive process between the imaginary and the real, and non-physical and the physical.
Art Statement :
“Kuala Lumpur, where thousands of resources go to waste.”
The presentation board illustrate the city of kuala lumpur with the essense of the Isora City, the city of thousand wells. The main message and idea is to create a scenery of Kuala Lumpur with thousands vertical long lines across the city of Kuala Lumpur just as the Invisible City: Isora City where the main message revolve around one of the main issue of Kuala Lumpur in my own opinion: The Talents (resources) of Malaysia often found to set their foot on other country and serve others none than theirs own Motherland-Malaysia. Besides, Malaysia known for being blessed with tons of natural resources are not able to fully utilize, secure and appreciate the resources given by the Nature. Within the illustration, the city are not developed with proper grey water city where the city are unable to secure the rainwater where most of the groundwater goes underground and are mostly wasted, leaving behind a piece of dry empty land. This will be the future of the KL city given if the current state of the city continues to proceed, ignoring all these issues and not providing any solution about it.
- Presentation Board are composited with a section-like scenery drawing where the upper part and bottom part of the middle symmetry axis lies the good water god and the bad water god, referenced the two different religion from the Isora City, ultimately trying to create a scenery sectional drawing between the battle between the “Good” and the “Bad”, where the Good provides rainwater to the earth (KL City) where the “Bad” try its best to destroy the earth into making the groundwater goes underground and to be wasted away from the people.
-Rainwater are illustrated in a way where its all aligned nicely to form a sense of the city being in a thousand “wells”, the kind of scenery the Isora City possesses.
-Water being one of the main element and media relating the storyline and city behind the main intention and message to be deliver, as it is strongly related and desired within the Isora City while closely related to our beloved Kuala Lumpur City.

|Interim submission, decided to make the upper surface much more harmony instead to enhance the feeling of the good will above surface and the evil beneath the ground which takes away the groundwater.|
