Silk, Sarah, Ting Ting, Yvonne and Dulcia are teacher-artists who bonded over their stint from the Art Teacher Practitioner Programme (ATPP) and share a common concern for the environment.
With Singapore’s economic success and increasing industrialisation, her natural landscape has been declining. Exactly how much is there left for future generations if we don’t act now?
Using materials from nature, one half of the art installation reflects the erosion of nature in response to the other half – the increasing amount of plastic used daily. Children, our hopes for the future, wrote messages in bottles as a plea for help. Being young, they may be unable to do as much to help save the Earth. Their voices are trapped in the bottles.
The artists’ hope to touch hearts and persuade viewers to change their mindsets. Only when change happens will the human race progress towards saving our Earth.
By Fan Yumei Yvonne, Foo Ting Ting, Lim Hui Yii Sarah, Ong Tian Nu Dulcia, and Silk Goh
