Ong Cai Bin

Participatory observation is my tool in examining the essential being of man. Daily life brimful of mundane acts evokes the discerning of the essential state of mind of the contemporary. I try to imagine that the world is not shaped by the few with power and authority, but indeed, by the drifting majority who have gone astray in their search of meaning.
