elements


Angin is the Malay word for air. Air is the Malay word for water. Regardless of language, these are the elements we need to keep this world turning naturally. Luckily for us in KL, the air quality is as clear as it can get. We know in a few months the haze will return, which blows in from the annual open burning forests of Sumatera. As for the water quality, let's just say that most homes have filters installed.

Great graphic sensibility, abstraction with color in a natural setting. I like the cross-language wordplay, too. You can get all sorts of interesting crossed wires between different languages. Some years ago, Chevrolet had a popular car in the United States called the Nova. It was a complete failure when they tried to introduce it to Latin America. GM executives could not figure it out until someone told them that in Spanish, "no va" means "it doesn't go."

love the textures.
our quality of water is good but we still have to filter it because of too much calcium.
have a good friday!

Angin means air, air means water, I love this word game. So when you use this, will you get air or water ;-)))

Great graphic composition.

I worry about the forest burning in Sumatra.

And Edwin, your "page after page" was brilliantly composed. Ah it's a joy to come here.
