The Unseen Arts in the Malay Culture and Heritage

2019 – On Going

The project aims to research and digitized the selected tangible and the intangible culture and heritage in the Malay culture empire, that has been overlooked or disregarded. Selected section of the Malay culture and heritage will be identified to merit its position to be included in the overall research project’s documentation. Once a collection of both tangible and intangible heritage is identified, a data collection will be conducted that involves audiovisual documentation, sound capture, photogrammetry and 3-dimensional scanning.

Artefacts ranging from literature scripts to craft or build heritage will be identified and curated to digitization. They are to be captured in line with the current methodology in digitization in line with UNESCO. Together with intangible heritage such as rituals or ceremonies, performances and processes will form a substantial collection that can then be added into the following years.
