The idea is having the community and the residents of Taman Jurong to design the art work and also expressing their love for SG in the Golden Jubilee National Day celebration. The paper planes are flying freely in the blue sky with clean water and lush greenery and the rainbow symbolises our hopes for a better future

I believe that my art could provide a functional platform to interact with the public. The SEA Games Torch Up! Project will give me a great opportunity to work with a keen group of Singaporeans that can show their talents to the rest of the people. I am a mediator to make these happen.
This is a project of Art, Design, craft and Electronics. Most important it wish to express the individual dreams of Singaporeans in an interactive way. Simple art workshops will be organised to engage the participants to create their artworks in a variety of art mediums that is installed in the light sculpture.
The Miscoded Linger II
This is a sculptural installation of a network of machines living in a world of their freewill movements but bind by a stream of routine codes and programs.
I will attempt to make the sculptures skeletal having an incomplete assemblage of torn-out parts and objects. They are created to feel their surroundings wondering for their freedom yet restraining to obey limitation. The collectiveness is controlled with order, at the same time lingering a chaotic individuality.

Jurong Rock Sculpture for JTC CleanTech Eco Garden Project
With Baet Yeok Kuan, Chua Boon Kee, Lim Soo Ngee, Yeo Chee Kiong
The design starts with the idea of using the original Jurong Rock that was unearthed from Jurong
island as a carving material. Through polishing its unique texture and color, and carving it into the shape of rain-droplet, it can finally be installed as “rain droplets in a park”. This echoes the clean technology. The symbolic transformation of materializing an abstract idea of 'rain' through processing a raw stone artistically; we cherish our belief in creating a green living environment through clean technology.
This is the first time we work together as a team. It is quite an extraodinary collaboration different from many common sculpture practices in Singapore.
We created an art sculpture that is very different from other works because it is created by a natural resource that is found in Singapore. And every rain droplet in the sculpture is unique.
The Jurong rock is very fragile and it breaks into smaller pieces easily. It is very challenging to solve this problem in order to turn it into a perfect sculpture.
