Brief
Lan Fang Chronicles 2012 is an exhibition by artist, Choy Ka Fai — investigating the 18th century Lan Fang Republic. Founded by the Hakka Chinese in West Borneo, the Republic lasted for 107 years before it disintegrated. The project investigates and documents the insignificant histories of the Republic, reconstructing the story of what was and what could have been the Lan Fang Republic. 

Solution
A currency was designed to symbolize the possible existence of a republic. This reconstructs the narrative of whether the Lan Fang Republic once existed or still exists, leaving the viewer to question and piece together their own version of this utopian world.
