They created a project titled: Rumah555 for Ring Project #1. RUMAH NO.555, keywords: Island vs Mainland > Maritime diplomacy, the compromising of differences or the unsafe (Fear), negotiation / the strategy = Recipe, to cultivate something / the benefit of exchange, Diplomacy is for living; was a concept of co-creating a safe space, decorated with gifts sent by Baan Noorg to Ekstrak and Ekstrak to Baan Noorg. The two collectives started exchanging and trading objects and messages(and memes) similarly to their past maritime diplomacy between Siam and Batavia, fulfilling what they lacked in order to feel safe.

2021 Trans-southeast Asia triennial, Art Museum of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (Oct – Dec 2021)
curated by Cathleen Siming (Pan Siming) and Stephanie Lu (Lu Sipei)
The project invited four groups of alternative spaces/associations initiated by artists to participate in an attempt to present the mutual enrichment of artistic creation and its platform formation. Participants have conducted long-term local practice in Ratchaburi Province, Thailand, Quezon City, Manila, Singapore and Guangzhou with their respective mediums, and practiced the action of “participation” in specific social contexts and experiences, from “consciousness” “, “Involvement”, “Participate” to “Participatory”. The experience of these spatial practices is scattered in the exhibition area into rooms with different degrees of openness but distinct personalities, translating the practice process for the audience who cannot be synchronized in artistic creation, and inviting the audience to participate in the assembly in this exhibition.
