‘Fluid Vase’ by Kwok Pan Fung

3D Audio Android App

I met Ted Chen and Phyo Ko Ko at the Singapore Mini-Maker Faire last week. They are behind this really cool Android app called “3D Audio” that allows you to listen to your music in 3D mode. You can control where you want your stereo sound to come from, two sound channels for left and …

Of neighbourhoods past and present

Gosh. I can’t remember the last time I attempted creative writing. I wrote this 1,500 word piece for poskod.sg, based on my field research for the book ‘A House is not a Home’. I tried to adapt the writing style to fit the online magazine – a personal and prosaic style. I still think my writing …

iLight Marina Bay 2012

I like the idea of a light festival that promotes a sense of place making as well as the idea of sustainable energy. Marina Bay is Singapore’s newest financial centre, and the iconic Marina Bay Sands symbolises the first world status of Singapore. This is a good location to use site-specific art to engage the …
