Jalan Jati or "Teak Road' traces the historic, material and poetic journeys of a 1950s teak bed that was found in a Singapore karang guni junk store, back to a location in Southeast Asia where the original teak tree may have grown. The project comprises photography, woodprint collage and stop-motion animation. Jalan Jati connects cross-cultural natural histories, micro and macro arboreal influences and DNA timber tracking technology.
