T(in)y

T(in)y is a portfolio about the objects and people in our surroundings but yet we neglected them most of the time, eventually these are the basic items which we might not even able to name it, there are always around us but when we need to search for them, it is always in vain.

For example, we recognise the lady who sells great and tasty nasi lemak by the roadside, when we pass by we would take a glance at her stall and probably address her as ‘makcik’, why shouldn’t we approach her and ask for her name instead? Why shouldn’t we show her a respect by giving her an identity.

More often than not we always take things for granted. it is time to show some love and care, the world is wonderful!

小(人)物这个系列是以“小物”讲述我们身边的“人”,这些东西都是被社会给遗忘,忽略,甚至丢弃的。可笑是。。。虽说大部分物品我们都知道是什么,但。。。如果要你具体说出物品名称,绝对会有几样会让你感觉如此的熟悉又如此的陌生。

同样的情况也发生在我们的社会上,就如每天在路边摊卖早点的那位妇女,我们顶多就称呼“阿姨”一句。。。十年如一日。。。过了那么久我们连姓什么都不懂。。。为何我们不能给予他们多一些的关怀呢?随口问问她姓什么。。。还她一个确实身份。。。

与其让他们成为我们生命中的无名过客,给予他们一定的肯定,我相信这世界会更美好!
