This project is a collection of visual images that investigate the local-global articulation in the urban social fabrics of the twenty-first century, as well as rural areas subject to globalisation.

Also known as the Visual Archive Project of the Global Imaginary, the project database is characterised by a phenomenological subjective. It reflects an interpretative approach to globalisation, understood as a material process and an imaginary through visual images.
The collected visual images explore, in their own right, the symbolic construction of the global imaginary with a special focus on the Asia-Pacific region. The main outcome of this research project is a visual expansion and a deeper understanding of the epochal processes of change and transformation we are living in.
