@ Charmaine Villamin

To create Hannah’s backstory I had to do quite a lot of research. Firstly, how the journal would look like inside. I surfed Pinterest how girls usually design their journals.

For the ending, I wanted to leave it ambiguous whether she returns to Singapore after leaving when the semester ends so I decided to check out flights that were Read more →

Idea: A story set in the library that requires the participants to go on a hunt around the library. Participation level: High Expected outreach: Low

My idea required a participant with a lot of free time. This limits its accessibility.

@ Eureka!

Hi, so for our final project we have to create an installation to be place in the ADM library. It sounds pretty interesting as it is like exhibiting our artwork in a real public space. Not only my classmates will be able to view the work but everyone that visits the ADM library.

The first part was to do some research, Read more →

@ viency

I need that motivation of feeling passionate about what I was doing and the message I was sending. I sat myself in the library for three hours, staring into space, into the ceiling, at the books. I probably Read more →

Task 1: Researching the site – ADM Library

Layout of ADM Library:

Majority of the people who uses the space in the library are students, and they go there to either kill time, relax or study. However I realised that they usually go there alone and they behave quietly, and are reserved. They hardly use the book shelves, unless for modules like Read more →

@ Junyuan Loo

Since everyone was so far ahead of the updates, I am gonna do a quick summarized update for my project 3 – The Library in ONE post.

Thinking of an installation art about the library is no easy task. This location is very common to anyone who has been a student, yet many of the library visitor has different perspective of Read more →

Time seems to be unnoticeable and faster in library relatively, as students concentrate on their work with so much effort, event without noticing time change outside. I’m eager to juxtapose Singapore life with the idea of timelessness, as life in Singapore cycles forever in Summer and as a residence, we seldom experience natural phenomenon change. So the concept was embodied in a Read more →

Thus, in exchange for a bit of your soul, I invite you to play in the library with words and what more. Be a word artist. Write me a poem about Play, and Your Read more →
