Part of AR.T Trail, Singapore’s first public art walking trail powered by Spark AR from Facebook to immerse the public in the narratives of six artworks to humanise the built environment.
Centred around patterns and formations found in nature, CURRENTS is a site-specific arrangement of 23 suspended modules in brass-toned stainless steel. The architecture of the Marina One building was the inspiration for the artwork. Each module was first folded into paper origami, made into digital models, then scaled up by craftsmen into multiple small metal panels which were later grouped to form twisted rings.
