CURRENT PRACTICE-BASED RESEARCH:

Kisah-Kisah dalam Kenangan/Stories through Memories:
an oral history project sharing stories through the memories of survivors who witnessed the tumultuous events of WWII in Brunei Darussalam (Dec 1941 - June 1945). Website Link.

Brunei Darussalam: Three Sixty:
provides a new interactive exhibition showcase for Brunei Darussalam's unique natural and cultural heritage.
It uses the latest technology and innovative strategies to incorporate immersive, interactive media in the design and exhibition space.

Audiences can engage with the exhibition media in both interactive and passive ways. Through this approach the exhibition appeals to a broad audience, those comfortable with leaning back and watching media such as film and television and those wishing to interactively navigate through the database of media clips and resources.
