The Search By The Search Party
17 Aug to 25 Aug
7:30 PM - 12:00 AM
Design Gallery 1, National Design Centre
The Search seeks to pay homage to the journey of navigating life in the city, and the whirlwind of emotions that come with it through the symbolism of a paper plane — a fond childhood plaything for many. The installation relays the message that there is something beautiful to celebrate in the people we meet, and experiences we gain in everyone’s unique journey of self-discovery.
The accompanying soundscape is a composition titled “The Autumn Journey”, written by Singapore-based multi-instrumental composer and pianist Eric Chiryoku, complementing the audio-visual experience of the installation.
This installation is also supported by Paper Carpenter - a design studio specialising in cardboard creations. Using the PaperConnectTM System, massive structures can be easily built with materials that are 100% recyclable from sustainable sources and FSC certified.
This installation is awarded under the Singapore Night Festival’s Open Call.
