On this Sunday's show: The SHYNESS OF TREES, a mosaic collaboration between Australian and American mosaic artists in George Town, Malaysia was supported by ANGELA HIJJAS and HIJJAS KASTURI whose home and thriving botanical garden, Rimbun Dahan, outside Kuala Lumpur is also the site of a private artist residency program of nearly 20 years standing. Angela will describe the goals, process and challenges in founding and running this program, whose primary participants are SE Asian and Australian artists. In the second segment, GLENN ROMANIS describes a series of recent site-specific works that he created in South Eastern Australia and relates the process of designing and creating these to the SHYNESS collaborative project at Hotel Penaga. Glenn's work integrates history, story-telling, topography, geography, geology and community-building. He has been commissioned by cities, museums, zoos, botanical gardens, religious organizations, and private collectors, resulting in a body of work comprising more than 100 installations. He considers much of the work to be part of a single "collage" of installations arrayed across the map of South Eastern Australia during the past 15 years.
