What Was Left Behind
GIFs, washi tape, QR codes, inkjet on print

At the heart of Singapore’s art district, Waterloo Centre sticks out like a sore thumb. While many galleries and museums enjoy their trendy, hip art events, Waterloo Centre and its residents are content with just being themselves. I wanted to respond to the quaintness of the space by bringing attention to its many under utilised pockets of space and unattended objects found along every corridor.

These gifs were exhibited as QR Codes that passer-bys could scan on their smartphones. The site-specificity not only encouraged alternative ways of viewing moving image but also highlighted Waterloo Centre’s winding architecture.
