Roots of our Origin was first inspired by intricate designs of paper cut designs which eventually sparked interest with the play on shadows. As there is a purposeful intention of raising awareness on consequences of waste and pollutions, the depiction of a deciduous tree at its maturity state where leaf are not present shows the tide it needs to turn just to survive through seasons after seasons. This is a symbolic representation of Singapore as we head towards our ‘Fall and Autumn’ seasons as we find ways towards Zero Waste! The shadow of the leafless tree aims to serve as a haunting reminder by hinting on what might bode for the future if nothing were to be done about this burning issue of wastage.
