Pivoting Blood Sun in a post-nuclear, post-apocalyptic environment, the work speculates a fictional arrangement of an alternate futuristic paradigm, negotiating the hybridity of the human and the non-human as well as thinking about its relativity to the Peninsula. Referencing the figure of the Malayan tiger as well as Octavia E. Butler’s fictional narratives, Blood Sun revives their embodiment as an ungendered-hybrid-mythological-symbiote, set in an environment that contrasts to cityscape’s intersection.
