This doctoral research focuses on mediated urban creativity in contemporary Southeast Asian cities, in particular the poetics and politics of urban lives and what people do with media in the context of their everyday creativity. The research aims to critically analyse the articulation of media and creative practice and its interplay with the tensions of memory-identity, space-place, and power in Southeast Asian contexts. This empirical research examines practices by the urban creative collectives in two cities: Bandung in Indonesia and George Town in Malaysia.
