DuniaMotif - Making Food Waste More Colourful

How do you turn food waste from one of KL's busiest wet markets into natural dyes for art to tackle the city's perennial food waste issue?

That's what DuniaMotif hopes to answer through its project and exhibition, the Kuala Lumpur Colour District. The exhibition, held earlier this month at the New Chow Kit Market, had visitors experience firsthand the process of collecting food waste from Pasar Raja Bot and repurposing it into materials for art displays by participating artists in an effort to reimagine the waste we create and empower individuals to take action towards building more sustainable communities.

We speak to the team behind the project to dive into the colourful world of transforming waste using traditional methods, the unique possibilities that our food waste and environment can offer, and what it takes to bring together art and advocacy.
