I am a researcher in urban media and communication with a main interest in the interrelation between everyday life and cultural practice in cities. My doctoral dissertation in Media and Communication Studies, entitled Creative voices of the city: Articulating media, space and cultural identities by creative collectives in Southeast Asia, investigated the lived cultures of the individuals within creative collectives in the creative cities of Malaysia and Indonesia. Using a combination of ethnography and visual methodology in particular the photo-documentation in documentary photography mode, the monograph highlights the ways in which the collectives form alternative spaces to live and work as their subtle resistance, developing an organic and dynamic interplay between the physical, social, and digitally mediated spaces of creative cities.
