Shoaling Through the Barriers

The installation sculpture features 99 fishes created individually by the participants of THK Seniors Services and the Zone E Youth Chapter. 

The whole engagement is done in 4 community sessions where the artist introduced different painting techniques and colour mixing practices with a comprehensive design process learning.

Each fish is expressed as a moulding of a creative self that are uniquely different, talented and trained in an owned discipline. The sculpture is capturing the spirit of Taman Jurong residents as the fishes are overcoming all barriers while shoaling in unity. 

The sculpture is located at Blk 337D Tah Ching Road.

Surrounding the nearby Jurong Lake is the natural habitat of lush greenery and an abundant species of fish wildlife. This enhances the recreational spaces for art which forms the inspiration for the artwork.

The Miscoded Linger

I have been experimenting and tinkering with open source electronics to create kinetic works such as Miscoded Linger. In this latest adaptation, the kinetic installation responds to the presence of a viewer, activated by a motion sensor and fashioned from old disused car parts, microprocessors and motors, which control the swinging movements of the suspended arms that move in random swirling motions. The idea of a sentient machine obeying a code of order that is ultimately controlled by its maker, is unable to be truly free, yet appear free willed and unrestrained in itself as an object personified, in time and space.

Cathedral of the Good Shepherd

work in progress

Shadow projected in the night


“There is nothing in the nature quite as helpful to man as a tree.” opined by Eric Rutkow, an environmentalist. Yet the very existence and demise of trees can be easily forgotten. This series of works from felled Khaya trees embraces the audience with its beauty  in touch, movement, sound and smell – a fitting memory of its being.

Bringing artistic functionality of these reclaimed wood to the fore, Swee Siong’s investigation of the medium manifested in a series of mobile sculptures that are modular, transformative and adaptive to different settings as well as interactive to the viewer.

Opening the windows, seeing the world

"Arts Connect! @ Bishan Toa Payoh GRC
PAssionArts Festival Village 2016
Large Ground Art Installation 

The artwork is a mural painting creatd by the residents that will transform into an LED lighted  artwork when in darkness. 
It is a celebration scene in which our Singapore national  icon the Merlion is gushing out extravagantly a myriad stream of 3D boxes. These  are opening up windows releasing out  fascination and wonders. In the  night, the artwork will be lighted up with firework patterns of colours pulsating out  from the LED pixels.
