DIGITAL ARTWORKS BY THE ARTISTS

โ— โ€œGLOWING PLANTSโ€ by Kaoru Tanaka. SDG Goal 12 Responsible Consumption & Production. Beautiful & delicate plants always heal and light us up. Just as plants are generated by the sun ๐ŸŒž, carbon dioxide & water ๐Ÿ’ฆ, so are the things that humans produce. This digital artwork seeks to reflect & reimagine how human production in the face of impending climate change can transform through methods eg. sustainable manufacturing which utilises natural materials as part of the possible solution

โ— โ€œAMORPHOUSโ€ by Tan Sher Lynn, FabU. SDG Goal 17 Partnerships For The Goals. Fascinated by the grotesque yet strangely beautiful aesthetics of the microbes, the installation is an attempt at recreating these natural phenomena digitally. Perhaps we humans can learn from the behaviours of these minute organisms that resemble biological computers & how they influence each other, forming efficient networks similar to that of mathematically generated patterns. By making the invisible visible, we could engage in a deeper understanding of our relationship with microbes & the communities around us

โ— โ€œVIVID DREAMSโ€ by LIE. SDG Goal 17 Partnerships For The Goals. Goals without action are just dreams. More than just a statement, SDG is a continuous effort to achieve a better & sustainable future. We bring the statement to life by recreating the icons of the Sustainable Development Goals in the form of abstract motions. The rhythmic movements of the lights represent an ongoing journey to keep moving toward the goals & continuity of the dream that everyone can achieve in solidarity for a sustainable future

โ— โ€œTILL THE GREENS ARE GONEโ€ by Si Ying. SDG Goal 15 Life on Land. This artwork is created to address the 15th SDG โ€“ Life on Land. It showcases a visual passage of colours & shapes from the outskirts to the city centre ๐ŸŒ‡๐ŸŒ† Along the passage, there will be a gradual transition of scenery from the lively organic greens to the grey hard dead tones of the high-rises. The colour data are collected from pictures of deforestation & construction work taken in Kuala Lumpur & Selangor

โ— โ€œPIXELSโ€ by Jun Ong: Jun designed the artwork installation & spatial experience of iNYALA 2022. The installation is itself an object & also a dynamic framework. Using a modular system, the framework made from organic cardboard together with the digital art installations are reimagined into a meandering pixelscape that allows storytelling & data to be visualized through different scales & dimensions. From afar, the glowing installation can resemble a geological terrain while up-close reminds one of the dynamic faรงades of cities. The entire spine anchors itself on the ground through a large, spatialized pixel that allows visitors to experience the insides of a pixel

SiennyLovesDrawing as a go green & sustainability supporter truly impressed with how art creative & innovation applies on having sustainable in mind. All the cardboards used with no print on it so all can be recycled after the exhibition โ™ป๏ธโœ…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Staying true to its mission to make sustainability core to artmaking practices, iNYALA 2022 has adopted innovative approaches to prioritise environmentally-friendly ๐Ÿ’š exhibition design & construction with 75% of the materials used for the show being organic, refurbished & recycle-able โ™ป๏ธโœ… in a bid to avoid single-use disposables, reduce wastage & overall carbon footprint

ย This art exhibition is being created out of 2๏ธโƒฃ main components ie. The LED panels & cardboard where the largest cube installation is made with more than 300 used LED modules collected across the city while the latter is a humble, non-chemically treated material made from paper pulp

The iNYALA 2022 is spearheaded by Helio Media, in collaboration ๐Ÿค๐Ÿป with Filamen. It’s supported by Tourism Malaysia & Yayasan Sime Darby. This latest art exhibition is made possible by Fahrenheit88, Co-labs Coworking, NovaStar, Nextrend, De Carton, LIE Design, Inner Voices Productions, Jun Ong & RUBIX

โ—55100/221126″ by Blankmalaysia of University Malaya. SDG Goal 08 Decent Work & Economic Growth & Goal 13 Climate Action. 55100/221126 is the continuation of Blankmalaysiaโ€™s series of digital work in 2022 that explores the fluctuating urban landscape, past/future memorial sites & the costs of development to the environment & the bodies involved in it. Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ, being a postcolonial country, has been transformed by waves of migrants since the 19th century. Today, Malaysiaโ€™s commitment to Agenda 2030 for sustainable development seeks to promote economic growth with social inclusion & environmental sustainability promises a ๐Ÿ†• era of transformation. Although the data shows GDP growth, the emissions caused by rapid development continue to rise.ย  This artwork hopes to create public discourse on the cost of economic growth at the expense of migrant bodies & our ecology through the juxtaposition of archival images & personal field work of present developments/ forgotten spaces

โ— “1 Movement 0 Execution” by Ammar Hazman Bin Rosli of Multimedia University. SDGย Goal 13 Climate Action. The artwork will explore modern natural disasters that have resulted from man-made consequences & the action that people took as a result of the event.

โ—The Tower of Perfidy” by Nur Farahhani Azwa Binti Rosli of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 16 Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions.

โ— “TemPixel” byย Rufiyan Bin Ramli of Multimedia University. SDGย Goal 13 Climate Action. With temperature mapping, this artwork explores rising temperatures recorded in Malaysia from 1991 to 2020 to demonstrate how our climate conditions have changed overtime. Thus, leading to the question: where do we go from here as our cities get hotter and development intensifies the effects of climate changeโ“โ‰๏ธ

โ— “Heat Escape” byย Group One Shot Production (Tey Yun Nee, Chin Jia Wei, Ting Ee Vern & Yeong Ke Xin) of Dasein Academy of Art. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. Heat Escape uses anamorphic illusion (requiring the audience to stand in a specific distance for best viewing) & supportive motion on other sides on a cube screen. Based on audio-visual data of man-made disasters, Heat Escape transports us to the disaster scene for the audience to reflect on where our planet will head next. The conceptual sphere in an anamorphic view symbolises our planet earth while the changing shapes & elements on it represent man-made hazards โ€“ Deforestation, Air Pollution & Water Pollution, that ultimately causes global warming. As our plane finds its way to recover and humans continue the exploitation, the loop will never end, and the extinction of our planet & human beings will be inevitable

โ— “Heart in a Box”by Irfan Jamil of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 03 Good Health & Well-being. Heart in a Box is a 3D-generative art simulation based on data by The Oxford Martin School, on the increase in heart disease and cardiovascular problems within the global population from the year 2010. Creating a simulation of a heartbeat going at a healthy rate of 80 bpm (beats per minute), Heart in a Box aims to provide a visual representation of how it is like to live with cardio-vascular diseases

โ— “The Mar Effect”ย by Sadthna Sargamm Sathi of Educational Institution: Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. The global COVID-19 pandemic around the globe ๐ŸŒŽ drastically decreased air pollution & greenhouse gas emissions but at the same time also increased demand on single-use plastics & overburdened waste management systems. This artwork is based on how the pandemic has changed our lives & the damages the earth is facing

โ— “Good Health & Well-Being” by Group Undefined Production (Tan Han Yang, Jason Seik Ping Sheng, Khor Yong Aun, Eugene Yip Tic Chun, Daniel Tan Wee Cheng & Rachel Khoo Rui Xin) of Han Chiang University College of Communication.
