Asian Public Art News
Art and similar interventions in public space. Coverage moves outwards from Singapore through Asia to the rest of the world. Like nothing else, the idea of "public art" exposes the contradiction inherent in our ideas of "the public" and of "art".

  The Tree
originally uploaded by draken413o.
Lovely public art intervention as part of the Singapore Night Festival. Inspired by the banyan tree just nearby, with dangling microphones substituting for aerial roots. It responds quietly to the ambient sounds. This is a slightly "drama" capture by Draken413o. The Tree is created by FARM, the art/design collective that runs the ROJAK series of events.

Other interventions as part of the Night Festival were also successful and popular, including Sun Yu Li's LED piece and Donna Ong's Crystal City inside the Museum. Attended the first part of Substation's entry, Amanda Heng's Let's Walk Some More, which paid attention to the lost and missing as well as the spectacular.
