This work is titled Focus, and is inspired by the visual qualities of HDBs in Singapore, where the closely stacked living spaces and crowded neighbourhoods furnish our landscape. Despite the economic practicality of HDB flats, its repetitive design can obstruct our psychological capacity by hindering our creativity and imagination. The artist’s fatigued disposition due to the confined spaces is reflected in the lawlessness of the architecture, creating an ambiguous imagery that is difficult to focus on. The chaotic buildings are a metaphor for our hectic lifestyles in a fast-paced city, where the act of focusing has become a challenge.
