Ways of Seeing (2021) is a larger than life "telescope" positioned to face and pay homage to the Singapore River. An important site of exchange- the River serves as a silent witness to the progress, constant flux and evolution of Singapore's past, present and future. Visitors are invited to peer in, walk into or rest under the structure to view their surroundings through new frames. In this unprecedented times of Covid-19 and safe distancing, the telescope motif takes on an additional layer of reading- the metaphorical act of viewing, observing and savouring of experiences from afar.
