This paper presents a research on the techniques of traditional Malay “shadow play” used in developing new concepts for representing interactive media. This funded research by the Selangor State Library is developed based on a book collection on the aural history of Sabak Bernam, one of the counties in Selangor located in the West Peninsular of Malaysia. It considers the domain of conceptual spaces within the shadow play setting and spaces by addressing the typology of the design. Representation of different character and environmental styles related to the Malay cultures were developed as multimedia content involving more than fifty local villages. It suggests form for background consideration of possible metaphors, the space arrangement of the elementary and actors, spatial relationships, audiences and the techniques of puppetry in the design for multimedia environments.
