CIPTA 2013 Final Year Assessment, External Evaluators Report & Meeting and the students celebrating their freedom.

Despite the ground-breaking selection of several works from the final year students of the Fine Art Department, Faculty of Applied & Creative Arts, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) in the up and coming Malaysian Young Contemporaries 2013, I sensed a distant echo from the Department, with its vibe diminishing as it tries to revert to its former glory in driving the e-art scene in Malaysia and beyond. For many years, as reviewed in some of my blog entries, it has churned out exciting e-art works that should be witnessed by more. Yet, it has also been dangerously lingering and circling in a similar vicious cycle of academic numbness that may sadly diminish its glow. Very sad to see a 'garden' that one used to lovingly nurture, fight for and sustain, is slowly turning into a distant and mechanical plantation. Really hope that I'm wrong and the situation will be remedied soon.
