We are interested in examining the peripheral and the insignificant as a means of rebutting a certain dominant hierarchical value system. Making do with “poor” materials and combining them together using roughly-tied knots, the work may evoke the crudely, yet much imaginatively and resourcefully built push-carts or vehicles used by old folks to scavenge for discarded goods, piles of old cardboard and empty drink cans in the streets of Singapore, just to make ends meet.

Our work celebrates the transformation of adversity into strength, a process most evident at our present times of declining economy, which embodies human creativity, invention and hardship emerging from the most straitening of circumstances.
