Sensing Punggol is
a collaborative artwork with the residents of Punggol.
Unearth intriguing stories about living in Punggol as you
view the larger-than-life “data sculptures” being showcased in a travelling
exhibition at various locations in the town. These artworks were created from
neighbourhood environmental data collected by Punggol residents of all ages.
Through these sculptures, you might discover the hidden life stories behind
sensor data such as air particulate-matter levels, sound levels, and UV levels,
as a way of quantifying the relationships between humans and their environment
across a period of time.

INSTALLATION: Oasis Terraces (Rooftop) and Punggol Waterway Park (outside Oasis Terraces),

Five Stones is a
playful and interactive public art project consisting large-scale inflatables
reminiscent of the familiar childhood game. Igniting personal memories, shared
histories and a collective remembrance of gathering around simple play, each

and the everyday. The stones will also pop up in various locations around
Singapore in December 2019, and gather in the Civic District for Singapore Art
Week in January 2020.

A Little Bed Trip (Petite Nuit Au Lit)
Our Tampines Hub
(Festive Plaza), 16 Nov, 4pm & 7pm
Toa Payoh HDB Hub,
17 Nov, 4pm & 7pm
On average, we spend
24 years of our lives in bed, sleeping, reading, eating, watching TV, praying,
hugging… and dreaming. Where do these dreams, fruits of our creativity, go when
we wake up?
A Little Bed Trip (Petite Nuit Au Lit) is a clownish invitation to provoke and
capture the world of dreams. Featuring nine beds piled on top of one another,
this theatrical vertical dance examines the transition of states from waking up
to falling asleep.
