This book documents an installation at the Peranakan Museum in 2013 by artist Lee Mingwei. It explores issues of archaeology, memory, connoisseurship, and rebirth. Visitors were invited to participate in creating the work and contribute permanently to the museum’s collection. The work is inspired by Mingwei’s 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”.
