For my final I really wanted to see if I could catch motion and paint an impression that I get when I see the everyday ongoings of my local environment. I was really inspired by the research that I had done for Final Year Project of the way everyone experiences culture in each constant moment as we live our lives.
I used to feel, when I was little, that Singaporeans were generally in such a rush (which could translate to being “kanchiong” and “kiasu”), and I’ve very often had negative receptions to that. But today, I kind of relish this part of Singapore as a necessary cultural process for Singaporeans. I do not see it so much as something negative but I’ve come more into terms about how it simply reflects Singapore’s rampant desire to advance and develop.
