This piece employs a combination of geometry, mathematical equations and the technology of laser-cut machines. The Malaysian Series is a single piece of distinct-shaped laser-cut metal sculpture, when combined and affixed still on the wall, emit a unique kinetic ability to the overall visual. The master craftsman is known for his ‘fluid metal sculptures’, and this piece is one of his earliest and most important private commissions by the Kuala Lumpur Hilton in KL Sentral, which has been mounted on their lobby lounge double-volume wall for over ten years. Presently, the Malaysian Breeze I can still be seen hanging there.
