This book chronicles, through an extended interview with the artist, an installation at the Peranakan Museum in 2013. Artist Lee Mingwei explored issues of archaeology, memory, connoisseurship, and rebirth in this work of art that invited visitor participation. Lee’s creation was inspired by his first visit to the museum: upon entering, he recalled his grandparents’ home, where light cascading from the skylight, sounds, and aromas coming from different floors, “became a sort of multisensory symphony in my mind.”
