Mirrored surfaces are the corten steel of the public sculpture of our era. The work certainly grabs the attention, and I think does enliven the space. But I've visited it at least a dozen times and I've never heard the sounds that are supposed to be part of the work.
24 HOURS IN SINGAPORE
Baet Yeok Kuan (Singapore)
Public Art Trust Collection
“24 Hours in Singapore” is an internactive audio sculpture installation that acts as an audio time capsule capturing soundscapes of Singapore. With the passage of time, this sculpture will serve as a remembrance of the rich intangible heritage of our daily lives in Singapore circa 2015. The installation's audio recordings feature familiar sounds of everyday people, places and scenes, from the sounds of traffic in suburban heartlands and MRT trains to the daily chatter in wet markets and coffee shops.
The artwork is proudly sponsored by the Real Estate Developers' Association of Singapore (REDAS) and commissioned by the Public Art Trust to commemorate Singapore's 50th birthday as a highlight of the Jubilee Walk.
