Whimsical Daydreams Light Installation Dhoby Ghaut Green (Artist Night Out 2017)

Many trees are pruned and cut down every day in Singapore’s urban garden of tree lined streets. Trees take very long to grow, some of their age as old as many of us. With a love for nature and giving trees a second life, the artist transformed it with ceramics forms and lights. 

Reflecting on the fast pace of urban life in Singapore and taking inspiration from the ubiquitous manicure trees line streets, the artist wonder on her role as an artist and what can she give and take from the city and nature. The city gave the wood and takes it away by chopping down, the artist takes the wood and give it a new life and give back the city.

As an artist Inspired by the amorphous shape from nature and a continuation of personal pursuit of soft biomorphic forms. The combination wood and ceramics evoke curiosity, its form a   smooth pop-up dream bubble perching on a trees with rough texture bark. 

An outcome is filled with thought, playfulness and whimsical imagination. The trees are dreaming, as the glow of lights flicker and transcend into different glows leaving behind the stress and mundane of everyday life.
