Interstice between people

[Insert name here] is an interactive and multi-sensory wearable artwork that discusses the interstices between different types of intimacies within different relationships and individuals.

The physical interstices found in our bodies are usually our most intimate ones. A very obvious and commonly interacted interstice is the spaces between our fingers, where we use to interlock our hands with our parents and partners. As such, we like to explore this portion of the human body to look into the interstices between individuals, where relationships are exposed and intimacy is challenged.

The artwork exists as two wearable pieces that can be worn by two individuals of different relationships (i.e. a couple, or two complete strangers). The wearable pieces come as a pair of wings and a pair of gloves. Individuals become the performer and the artwork once the artwork is worn, and they are encouraged to interact with each other. Specifically, the performers are encouraged to engage in physical intimacy to control how the artwork appears.

Heartbeat detectors on their wrist will measure their pulses, which generates a certain visual and soundscape based on the pulse.

Research Critique 2 – i Light Singapore 2019

For the first time ever, I visited the i Light Singapore on the very first day it opened with @bananaleow. Many interesting artworks were on display, nonetheless, 2 interactive artworks stood out to me.


To be honest, when I first saw this artwork, I made a remark to @bananaleow, “This artwork so big, confirm got no interaction!”

To my delight, we found small little joystick stands placed around the area. Visitors get to control the direction, speed as well as the colour within a certain area around the joystick.

The artwork is an ” abstract reflection of the multicultural world we live in”, which I believe reflects the diverse cultures, living in their own way, but harmoniously together, especially as we see in Singapore.

With many joysticks around for people to play with, it not only allows for multiple people to interact with the artwork at the same time. It also allows for a sort of art collaboration between strangers, as different people to control different sections of the installation at the same time. Hence, at any point of the viewing of the installation, we see the “artwork” of many different visitors.

Keys of Light

While climbing the stairs of Fort Canning Park, I was thinking to myself, this installation on top better be worth this climb. And YES, it was worth it, by far my favourite installation of the event.

Placed on Fort Canning Park, we see that there were obviously lesser people as compared to the Marina Bay area. However, with no lesser people around, we really got a chance to interact with the artwork.

An interactive piano installation, visitors get to control the visual outcomes displayed on the tower when they press the keys on the piano. When we usually play the piano, the outcome we get is only sound. So it was interesting that now we get to see a visual outcome of our actions. Hence, I would say that this installation was a multi-sensory experience, engaging with sounds, visuals and touch.


There were many artworks that stood out, however they lacked interactivity. Nonetheless, here are some of the artworks which I really enjoyed even without the interactive element.
