Recycle Nature
Hourly from 11am-6pm, last session at 5pm, Outside Learning Gallery
The festive season is here, and with it comes an opportunity to have a more environmentally-friendly celebration. Dig a little deeper into some of the environmental impacts the festive season has on natural resources globally, particularly forest resources. Inspired by Han Sai Por’s Black Forest 2016, visitors will create and juxtapose two versions of a forest, one alive and another charred and destroyed from deforestation.

Be inspired from the artworks of Qiu Zhijie and Tan Zi Hao at the Singapore Biennale! Imagine what mythical creatures you may chance upon if you were an explorer or adventurer on a voyage to distant, mysterious lands. Get crafty and create an imaginary hybrid creature which you can wear around your waist or as a bracelet!
