O For Other is collective blogging project that explores histories, narratives and cultures that might say something different about Malaysia in the world. Shunning state-centric history, we explore the ordinary, the imaginary and the fugitive through a multiplicity of forms.
Imagine a blog that accommodates the photographical reveries of a solitary worker in the geography of her Bangsar South cubicle, the creations of a Minecraft player dreaming of a world in Esperanto and the writings of a PLUS-highway toll collector who believes lyric poetry is still possible after Auschwitz.
What might they have to say about what goes on around us? What stories and ideas about Malaysian society might they share?
