Decaying Coastline is a project inspired by the petrol-chemical development in my hometown of Pengerang, Malaysia.
Development leads to demolition of cultural heritage. Historical temples, schools, and houses will be demolished due to the immense needs of ground for infrastructure development prior to oil refinery construction. Pollution, on the other hand; is inevitable. The disastrous impact and consequences incurred from the oil development are beyond our imagination. Moreover, villagers are forced to evacuate due to the project.
This project aims to capture the process of development from a villager's point of view and eventually raise awareness among local & international community.
