Based on the classic block-stacking game, Progress: The Game of Leaders is a highly interactive sculpture that depicts Singapore’s current socio-political landscape. Through the form of a game, the artwork invites visitors to ponder some of the fundamental values necessary in the name of progress.

The blocks of Progress symbolise elements we’ve strengthened in order to build a first world country—the stacking of blocks simulates building skyscrapers with our own hands, much like how societies are constantly constructed and seeking upgrade. However, alongside progress, some compromises have to be made.
