SG HEART MAP ART SHOWCASES
The celebration event is also showcasing two special SG Heart Map art installations, as part of the co-creation efforts by local artists and fellow Singaporeans.
Sound Artist, Zul Mahmod, presented SonicMemories Sound, a sound installation depicting special occasions, celebrated at different places, shared by individuals, families and communities. The collection aims to feature stories and sounds that have been shared through generations. These sounds could be recordings at national, cultural and celebratory events like National Day, ‘getai’ and weddings. They could also be personal interpretations of special occasions taken place in their homes or in the heartland.
The mailbox is selected as the centrepiece and is the intermediary to convey the cherished stories of places, nostalgic experiences and treasured memories. The mailbox connotes hopes, aspirations, love, and relationship. Before the advent of email and social media, the mailbox was key in bringing people together and to be connected. It will always have a special place in our hearts.
As Singapore progresses and transforms, we see changes in the physical environment and landscape. What holds generations of Singaporeans together, are cherished memories of special occasions that we treasure and hold close to our hearts. SonicMemories showcases how the juxtaposition of curated sounds and the interplay with the mailbox could result in an artistic yet playful way of sharing stories of places.
Michael Ng, founding member of OICsingapore (Organisation of Illustrators Council), has also collaborated with students from Admiralty Primary School, Anderson Secondary School, Loyang Secondary School, Bedok Green Secondary School and School of the Arts to imagine and create larger-than-life pop-up illustrations of our future Singapore.
From a little fishing village to a bustling sleek modern city-state, Singapore has come a long way! The grand visions of the leaders and planners of the city of Singapore have shaped and moulded the dreams into a reality that each and every one of us enjoys.
SG Heart Map - Future City Vision invites you to step into an imaginative future of Singapore with us through the larger-than-life pop-up illustrations created together with some 100 students. Immerse yourself in a Singapore that is creatively re-engineered and bursting with colours. More than that, we also want you to join us to add to this future vision for Singapore - AD2065 and beyond.
