Muscovado (Sakada) includes a photograph, vacuum-packed muscavado sugar, and copies of historical documents, shown as an excerpt to a larger work.

Connecting these everyday items are a specific history and cultural identity. Moreover as the items are imbibed with the personal and familial; memory, ideals and beliefs, emotion and information, politics and activism, all intertwine into symbols that remain pertinently present whilst transcending time.

The installation was a part of the show Material Practices in the Everyday at the Artery Gallery in Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines (May 2- June 6, 2015).
