In addition to the entries submitted by the students, the exhibition will feature works from both international & local artists such as Kaoru Tanaka, FabU & Jun Ong. A 1️⃣-minute unique multimedia show curated by Kaoru Tanaka, FabU and LIE, involving all 17 art installations accompanied by sensuous sound, will be staged at the start of every hour to present an audio-visual experience which conveys the message of unlocking a world of beautiful possibilities when all interlinked SDGs are met

.

DIGITAL ARTWORKS BY THE ARTISTS

● “GLOWING PLANTS” 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 🌞, carbon dioxide & water 💦, 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

“AMORPHOUS” 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

● “VIVID DREAMS” 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

● “TILL THE GREENS ARE GONE” by Si Ying. SDG Goal 15 Life on Land. This artwork is created to address the 15th SDG – Life on Land. It showcases a visual passage of colours & shapes from the outskirts to the city centre 🌇🌆 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

● “PIXELS” 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 façades 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 ♻️✅👍🏻

Staying true to its mission to make sustainability core to artmaking practices, iNYALA 2022 has adopted innovative approaches to prioritise environmentally-friendly 💚 exhibition design & construction with 75% of the materials used for the show being organic, refurbished & recycle-able ♻️✅ in a bid to avoid single-use disposables, reduce wastage & overall carbon footprint

 This art exhibition is being created out of 2️⃣ 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 🤝🏻 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

DIGITAL ARTWORKS BY THE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

●  “CarbonBubbles” by Iwani Binti Muhammad Izhan of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. As Malaysia 🇲🇾 continues to be a car-based society 🚗🚘, this artwork illustrates the increasing amount of global greenhouse gas emissions from private transportation. Different cars are shown to be affected & affecting others as emissions continue to rise & pollute our environment

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl3Fmcmpsk6/

  “Not a Dream” by Group MMUTB of Multimedia University (Muhammad Khuzairi Bin Mohamad, Teh Poh Leng, Lena, Tang Efaye, Ray Lee Zhe Yen & Akiff Rahman). SDG Goal 06 Clean Water & Sanitation. Animating the long process of dirty to clean water 💦, the artwork unpacks issues related to water quality, affordable access to drinking water & how it is affected by insufficient sources of clean water & poor water-related ecosystems

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl3shzlpqNo/

55100/221126″ by Blankmalaysia of University Malaya. SDG Goal 08 Decent Work & Economic Growth & Goal 13 Climate Action. 55100/221126 is the continuation of Blankmalaysia’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 🇲🇾, being a postcolonial country, has been transformed by waves of migrants since the 19th century. Today, Malaysia’s commitment to Agenda 2030 for sustainable development seeks to promote economic growth with social inclusion & environmental sustainability promises a 🆕 era of transformation. Although the data shows GDP growth, the emissions caused by rapid development continue to rise.  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

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl5C3FCJJYp/

“1 Movement 0 Execution” by Ammar Hazman Bin Rosli of Multimedia University. SDG 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. As climate mitigation has become an increasing concern in the face of climate change, the artwork hopes to provoke thought on what can be done before it is too late

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl6brPKJoV8/

The Tower of Perfidy” by Nur Farahhani Azwa Binti Rosli of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 16 Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions. Malaysia 🇲🇾 is a country at a crossroads, plagued by bribery & corruption. This artwork focuses on exploring how the country can achieve peace & justice in the aftermath of 1️⃣ of the biggest corruption scandals in the world 🌎

“TemPixel” by Rufiyan Bin Ramli of Multimedia University. SDG 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 change❓⁉️

“Heat Escape” by 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 – 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

“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

“The Mar Effect” by Sadthna Sargamm Sathi of Educational Institution: Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. The global COVID-19 pandemic around the globe 🌎 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

“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. SDG Goal 03 Good Health and Well-being. This artwork looks into aspects of the Malaysian healthcare system, the issues & improvements that could be made. The sub-topics chosen are Universal Access to Sexual & Reproductive Care, Family Planning & Education, Fight Communicable Disease, Suicide Mortality, Prevalence of Tobacco Use, Mortality Rate From Unsafe Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH). With the Malaysian healthcare system being put under pressure during the pandemic, this artwork invites the audience to reflect on how we had to navigate our health processes & how we progress❓⁉️

“Zero Hunger” by Group Artistic Gang (Tan Sun Ying, P’ng Soak Nee & Yeap Quah Chin Xuan) of Han Chiang University College of Communication. SDG Goal 02 Zero Hunger. Malaysia 🇲🇾 as a developing nation is still suffering from food insecurity, childhood stunting & malnutrition. This artwork traverses the severity of the issue & hopes to inspire us to do our part in improving the wellbeing & health of our nation’s future

“Poverty Tripped by Theeran Rajamokan of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 01 No Poverty. The generative artwork explores regions still left behind in extreme poverty. Using data from World Population Living In Extreme Poverty from 1990-2019, the artwork invites us to reflect on those left behind during the pre-pandemic world and how it resulted in inequality within & between countries when the COVID-19 pandemic hit

The iNYALA 2022 supports the SDGs defined by the United Nations General Assembly (UN-GA). The SDGs are a comprehensive set of goals to end poverty, protect our planet & improve the lives & prospects of the global population, now & into the future

According to the UNWTO’s Policy Brief on Tourism & COVID-19, the crisis is an opportunity to rethink how tourism interacts with our societies, other economic sectors & our natural resources & ecosystems; to measure & manage it better; to ensure a fair distribution of its benefits; & to advance the transition towards a carbon neutral & resilient tourism economy

✨ ~ Tourism Futures Reimagined ~ ✨

With this theme, WTC 2022 aims to provide an interdisciplinary platform for policy makers, experts & world leaders in tourism to present & discuss the most recent innovations, trends, practical challenges & solutions for the future of tourism. Also to champion thought leadership on tourism futures & strategies driving tourism’s recovery & resilience in a post-pandemic world 🌎

It features some 30 expert speakers comprising government policy makers, industry leaders & leading academicians, apart from UNWTO officials in championing thought leadership on tourism futures & strategies driving tourism’s recovery & resilience in a post-pandemic world. They include the State Minister, Ministry of Tourism Maldives 🇲🇻, Dr. Ahmed Salih; Regional General Manager, Tourism Australia 🇦🇺, Mr. Brent Anderson; Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin-Stout, USA, Prof. Jafar Jafari; Co-founder of Traveloka, Indonesia 🇮🇩, Mr. Albert; & representatives from some of the world’s most innovative tourism-related companies such as Skift, Tripadvisor, TUI Group & Intrepid Travel 👍🏻

It’s an inspiring addition to Malaysia’s 2022 Calendar of Events 🇲🇾🗓️ with a full return to in-person participation, in line with Malaysia’s reopening of international borders since 1 Apr 2022. LocalMalaysian experts also made an appearance on the exclusive WTC 2022 stage including Prof. Dr. Amran Hamzah of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia; Mr. HC Chan, CEO of Sunway Malls & Theme Parks; Ms. Lau Yin May, Group Chief Marketing & Customer Experience Officer, Malaysia Airlines; Mr. Yusno Yunos, CEO of Evenesis & 2️⃣ local Sabahans from Kota Kinabalu – Dr. Maklarin Lakim, Director of Sabah Parks & Ms. Jessica Yew, Founder & Director of Sticky Rice Travel

“This year’s conference is very significant for Sabah because Kota Kinabalu is playing host for the 2️⃣nd time after 12 years & undoubtedly, it is a clear testament to its fame as a major tourist destination 📍& a gateway for travellers visiting Sabah & Borneo. Kota Kinabalu is also 1️⃣ of the most attractive & popular destinations not just in Malaysia 🇲🇾 but in the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. When I came here in 2010 for the 1️⃣st time when Kota Kinabalu hosted the 2️⃣nd edition of the WTC, I was so impressed by its natural wonder & its unique culture & beauty with stunning tourism facilities that I made it a point to recommend 👍🏻 it to many friends in Asia including my fellow countrymen of Korea 🇰🇷, because I saw it as a very ideal destination to visit with one’s family & friends. I’m happy to report that many of them have taken me at my word & have come to experience the beauty of Kota Kinabalu.” Said Mr Harry Hwang, the Director, Regional Department For Asia & The Pacific, UNWTO in his opening remarks for WTC 2022

1️⃣ of the major highlights of the conference is the keynote presentation by distinguished speaker, Prof. Dato’ ChM. Dr. Mazlin Mokhtar of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network-Asia & Academy of Sciences Malaysia for the 1️⃣st time bring a scientist’s perspective to the WTC, particularly in advancing a more sustainable tourism recovery which embraces energy transition & carbon neutrality

Datuk Hajah Saraya Arbi, Secretary-General of MOTAC in her welcoming address has acknowledged the tremendous impact of the worldwide pandemic & multiple crises which continue to disrupt the tourism sector’s growth trajectory. “However, there is also a great window of opportunity 👍🏻 for us to rethink & reimagine tourism for the future which is more sustainable, inclusive & less susceptible to shocks,” She further explained

Despite challenging headwinds to the global economy in 2023 & beyond, experts have great expectations for the tourism sector, predicting continued pent-up demand alongside 🆕 growth opportunities & emerging niche markets arising from the pandemic. For instance, as tourism recovery gets underway, the boundaries between work, home, leisure & travel become increasingly blurred, requiring greater cross-collaboration 🤝🏻 between tourism & transport, health, security, cities & urban systems towards greater liveability & quality of life for both visitors & residents alike

“These are just some of the exciting new prospects that will be explored during this 2️⃣-day conference. Therefore, I hope the chosen theme of “Tourism Futures Reimagined” will inspire deep insights on the challenges, opportunities, trends and forecasts shaping the future of the industry,” Saraya concluded

Sunway Hotel’s Halal Practices & Hotel Food Waste Management

All attendees got to experience the green meeting facilities in Arena meeting room of Sunway Resort Hotel

As a go green supporter, SiennyLovesDrawing enjoyed her 1️⃣st green meeting & observed some great sustainability efforts ♻️💚✅👍🏻

✅ Glass water containers & cups replacing single use plastic
✅ Papers supply at a destinated corner in the meeting room, upon usage required, instead of distribute on each seat
✅ Snacks & sweets in reusable container eg. No more Mentos sweets to reduce single use plastic packaging etc.

✅ Usage of food waste composting machine

All attendees got to understand, then tour & gain experience a hotel’s sustainable food waste management practices. Also learning more insights into a Silver Muslim-Friendly Accommodation Recognition (MFAR) hotel’s sustainability efforts in managing food waste, as well as halal foods preparation for Muslims guests

Then, to visit the segregated halal kitchen & the food waste composting machine. It’s really impressive that with proper food waste management, the compost can be used as fertilizer in plantations ♻️💚💪🏻👏🏻👍🏻

SiennyLovesDrawing has learnt that 150kg food waste required for at least 18 to 24 hours compost process in this 300 litres machine. It depends on food waste put inside the machine, no specific measurements, if fruits skin a lot, the compost will be watery & hence it will take longer time to compost. Food scrap includes food being touched but not finished & food waste from food preparation
