My 8000 piece artwork: Behind the scenes

I’ve been a bit quiet lately. When you see how many saga seeds I’ve been gathering from all over Singapore, to become part of a sculpture I am working on, you will understand why. When I tell you that I have been numbering them with white paint, by hand… you will wonder why as well.

I have been taking the ‘found object’ to a new level, and I will also be telling all the stories of the process of finding and collecting the individual seeds (all 8000 of them), through the artwork and via this blog. The sculpture Pass It On began with the simple idea of a sentence as a line with a beginning and end. The resulting sculpture comprises more than 8000 saga seeds, which the audience is invited to take and pass on.

All will become clear very soon. Join me at Displacements, opening in Singapore on 1st June 2013, to see the full sculpture.
