Throughout the process of creating my latest artwork, ‘Pass it On’, I have wandered all over Singapore, collecting 8900 saga seeds and keeping a seed collecting journal – this journey has become a big part of the artwork, so I am sharing it with you. Below is the story of day one. You can also hear ‘the artist’s story’ on Okto TV at 10pm next Wednesday.
DAY 1 (SEEDS 1-2): DAMP AND ALMOST SEEDLESS

ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
Pass It On began with the idea of creating little points of knowledge and connection, which form a narrative from one place to the next, and beyond. Referencing the evolution, shift and migration of many things, the installation seeks to create a space in which to consider the positive and negative effects of the process of change, the fluid nature of culture, knowledge, memory and history. The resulting sculpture involves 8900 hand-numbered saga seeds – tiny red particles which the audience are invited to take and pass on.
Collect your own seed until 23rd June, at Displacements exhibition, www.13Wilkieterrace.com
