    The Government Rest HouseBatu Gajah, Perak

  • THE WALLFLOWERA wallflower blends in with its surrounding, invisible to most. Observing the changes that take place around it but never takes part. Once deciphered,

  • Metaphorically, The Government Rest House is much like a wallflower and this photobook documents a day in its life. This photobook is also a journal to document all the measured

    drawing activities that took place in the rest house during our stay in Batu Gajah.
