Rope Chandelier

A special collaboration with Theseus Chan to create an in situ installation within the atrium of Singapore’s National Design Centre.

Text from the exhibition:
An inevitable consequence of a driven culture for far too long, our society’s fixation on success and status quo has discouraged many from individualistic expression. Adopting something not yet done before or popular are deemed as risky ventures.

Rope Chandelier celebrates the importance of the process that leads to the undefined domain. It exemplifies the attributes that characterises an unfinished ‘design’ piece; familiar objects are appropriated in this installation, so viewers first encounter them as common but different.

Recontextualised due to the occasion and space, Rope Chandelier creates the spirit of experimentation, accidents, failures, awaking a sense of verve that comes when creating the unknown.
