Vivid - Positive Attracts by Edwin Cheong
These life size light statues have Infra Red sensors to detect when you are in close range and trigger their LED lighting effect. The artist wants the rainbow waves of colour to charge you, the spectator, with doses of optimism. Guess the real life heroes they are named after from the quotes at the base of each statue. Singaporean architect and sculptor Edwin Cheong is an environmental, kinetic, light-art artist, educator and writer. He holds a Master of Architecture and is a design and art lecturer. His interest in 3-dimensional arts sees him work with broad scope furniture, landscape and sculpture. He is the celebrated creator of Singapore’s 33ft tall Youth Olympic Games Commemorative Sculpture.
