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!
