Rojak — 1. NOUN: A delicacy in Singapore. Mixed with various ingredients. Different parts united in a harmonious whole.
In a world filled with polarised views, Rojak State focuses on exploring the positive side of hybridity and being mixed in Singapore, a melting pot of multiculturalism. It focuses on the idea that everyone has a tint of mixed in their own unique way and aims to move beyond race or boundaries in order to find common ground with both mixed and non-mixed people. The beauty of mixedness is explored through the harmonious juxtaposition of visual elements, illustrating the stories and lives of mixed individuals. Boundaries of race, religion and nationalities are blurred to form a representation of our mixed world, in hope of embracing mixedness and duality rather than forced categorisation.
