There are many different roots one can go when deciding on an installation piece; the artist must come up with theme, location, and objection. He/she must determine the reaction and experience they want their audience to gain from the art piece. Installation art in principal is taking a large area and changing its perspective by filling it with art that Read more →
The Nobel banquet and Burning man are both two projects where people are gathered for a cultural experience. Both events focus on acknowledging some kind of performance, whether it is an artwork or some kind of scientific discovery. Burning man is described as a “cultural manifest expressed through art, communal effort and innumerable individual acts of self-expression”. The Nobel banquet is Read more →
In this Fifty Shade assignment, I have chosen two of the project that I am going to compare and contrast.Art Stage Singapore, an annual Art Fair here in Singapore. Link to project. The Fragility Of Time, a series of sculpture by artist Ignacio Canales Aracil. Link to project
These two projects are chosen mainly because they overlap each other in Read more →
I have chosen to analyze and compare the ICEHOTEL and the film “Boyhood” by Richard Linklater. The reason I chose these two projects is that they are two completely different projects, both aiming to create an experience and tell a story that exceeds any expectations of the audience.
Creating a new unique hotel Read more →
In this hyperessay, I will be comparing Boyhood the movie and a photography project about dogs by Amanda Jones.
Boyhood is a 2014 American independent coming-of-age drama film, written and directed by Richard Linklater, and starring Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater, and Ethan Hawke. Shot intermittently from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood depicts the childhood and adolescence of Mason Evans, Jr. (Coltrane) Read more →
Fragility of Time: https://oss.adm.ntu.edu.sg/chen0907/2016/02/01/58/
The two projects that caught my eye was Marc Quinn’s “Planet” and Ignacio Canales Aracil’s “Fragility of Time”. Not only these two art pieces have similar mediums, they explore similar themes: to explore instances that only exist for a very short time.
In Marc Quinn’s “Planet”, the artist plays on weight (it is made of heavy metal) and the Read more →
My hyper-essay is going to talk about Marc Quinn’s Planet and Kumi Yamashita’s Origami Shadow Art. Both of them are interesting and mind-blowing sculptures but made of different materials and techniques. Also, their concepts and process making are not the same in many aspects either.
In 2011, shadow artist Kumi Yamashita, was commissioned by American Read more →
Things people find funny on the internet appear to be arbitrary and contrary in nature. Games as different as Saints Row and Goat Simulator can both be similarly categorised under ‘funny’, and that’s funny.
Saints’ Row is a game about gangland violence, and finds it’s origins in the decidedly unfunny circumstances of gang turf wars, and organised crime syndicates. The writing Read more →
The first thing that strikes me about both of these projects is the ephemerality of the artworks. Weeks, months, and maybe years of careful work and planning have been put into these projects, only for them to last perhaps a month or two at best.

Performance. What is performance, or rather what do you think about when you hear the word ‘performance’?
Darryl talked about the critically acclaimed musical, Wicked. From it’s origins as words in a book to sold out tickets on Broadway (and in international waters), Wicked has become one of the most famous and popular musicals in the world.
