Shadow Puppets of Siew Lian Lim

When at the library this month, be sure to stop in the lobby for a few moments to take in the display of Southeast Asian shadow puppets created by artist Siew Lian Lim. With her use of recycled materials such as soda cans and ramen noodle packages, Lim recontextualizes characters from her home country of Malaysia into representations of modern gluttony and waste. For a gallery of Lim's puppets, visit the library's facebook page.
