Art in Transit: “Asemic Lines” by Boedi Widjaja

The artwork presents the multi-cultural mix of language as the result of multi-culturalism, and invites the viewers’ aesthetic intuition to ‘hover’ between reading and looking. It comprises Chinese, Jawi, Tamil and Latin words and letterforms that were layered upon each other in rhythm patterns then sandblasted into the wall. Spanning 91.2 metres, it was created by Boedi Widjaja, 40, an Indonesia-born artist who has been living in Singapore for the past 31 years.
