Odd One Out is an interactive diorama, which explores the stereotype culture experienced by former Madrasah students in Singapore. As the non-Muslim society has little to no knowledge about the Madrasah, they have a narrow perception towards these students. At the same time, the Malay/Muslim community has certain expectations that the students have to meet upon graduation. However, using the values they have learnt from their Madrasah, these students managed to break the boundaries and go beyond expectations. The installation encourages audiences to spot the odd person out from the miniature city and learn how the students strive for excellence and contribute back to the country as their way of tackling the major Madrasah stereotypes. Each miniature zone invites viewers to identify minor elements that are significant to the stereotyped character and his/her story including buildings, objects and sound. This sense of discovery allows viewers to piece and uncover the case studies at their own pace.
