Humidity is a personal response to the onset of emotions following a 3000km move to a new home in the tropics. Observations brought on by moments of quietness and contemplation on whether I made the right decision, Humidity is as much a process of feelings as it is a sensation and questioning of my new environment. In this part of the world when the heat confuses your mind, it can be hard to fathom what it actually is I am doing here. The thick air reminds me of Malaysia where I grew up, of family who now - out of reach in the pandemic - feel like they are a whole other world away. It’s not what I thought here, perhaps it has changed, or perhaps I never really knew what it was like in the first place.
