His work, “Mijn Naam is Potlood” (“My Name is Pencil”, 2009) returns to Indonesia with a new delivery and context on the theme of homecoming. Tiong Ang combines documentary observation with manipulated imagery to blur the line between fact and fiction, an attempt to describe how the mass media filters and distorts reality.
