Imaginarium – SAM@8Q

Singapore Art Museum at 8Q. For the young and young at heart.




The Ocean View Resort

An art work in the form of a video installation.

Sitting alone in that room, watching the images for almost 20 minutes. Listening to the narrator’s subdued and unclear articulation. Trying to decipher his accent, yet also just submitting to the lull of his voice. Contemplating on the content of the film. Contemplating Beethoven, as his music was used. I felt deeply in touch with myself.

So that is what Art can do.

When I went back to the gallery a week later, the exhibit had ended. I did not get to see the rest of this exhibit…

Weight of History

“Weight of History” exhibit at the Art Museum.

A thought-provoking journey –

Makes one ponder about what makes us what we are.

As burdensome as “weight” sounds,

Would we be less anchored without it?


Night Festival 2012





Backdated pictures from Night Festival 2012.

Despite the novelty of it all, the crowds just made me feel like it was too mainstream after a while.

And I retreated to the quiet shelter of my favorite library πŸ™‚


The Magic of Museums






There’s something about museums that draws me back, again and again.

There’s the silence which I relish and can take for granted.

There’s the wonder of seeing and reading and learning about what’s in front of you.

There’s the luxury of walking at your own pace, unhurried and leisurely.

There’s the Magic of being immersed in a different world. A dimmer, quieter world. Of stories and tales, and evoked imagination.
