I grew up in Whampoa Drive and this piece pays tribute to the area's iconic " Dragon-Fountain", a structure that first instilled a sense of awe and fear in me as a child but later became my neighbourhood playground.
This installation comprises boxes of three different heights which can be utilised as a chair, a dining table, and a bar table. Beyond these functions, the multiple edges and surfaces also aim to encourage discovery and a sense of playfulness. It is my re-imagined take on the " Dragon-Fountain"- to foster a spirit of community and to be an inclusive space for fun, food and laughter.
The Whampoa Dragon was featured in Singaplural 2015 as part of The Little Thoughts Group.
