Whether it’s around a campfire or a dining table, communities have gathered to share stories for centuries. Experience this age-old practice in urban spaces under neon lights with two unique installations featuring visual stories created by students from Zhonghua Secondary School and Ngee Ann Secondary School. Enjoy the animated videos (including imagined realities plagued by dragons and nuclear disasters), masks you can ‘try on’ with Augmented Reality, and photographs that celebrate the neighbourhoods of Serangoon and Tampines. Can’t make it to the physical installations? Explore the accompanying online exhibition and connect with the art and stories from anywhere in the world.
