State of mind 1

It was quite a fun afternoon at the National Museum of Singapore (NMS). NMS is exhibiting installation art from the FRAC (French Regional Collection of Contemporary Art*).

Entitled “What is not visible is not invisible”, taken from Julien Discrit’s 2008 work, also on display, it was an interactive experience, quite accessible even for an art plebian like me.

Here’s my take, “State of mind” in installments, where I touched light and heard smoke, on the transient and the imaginary.

If I don’t see it

Is it not there?

Standing above the clouds on Zugspitze

Zugspitze
Literally, a bird’s eye view. Standing 2,962m above sea level on Zugspitze

Standing above the clouds
2,962m above sea level to be exact
is awesome.

Not of the “this-burger-is-awesome” variety
but the divine inspired, to be exact
it’s awe-inspiring.

It is a sea of cloud
meeting the horizon of blue sky

mountain peaks
cast shadows over it.

Where? Really?

I showed this picture to some friends. At a glance, they asked whether it was the Mediterranean. Really? The closest it gets to the Mediterranean is this heritage town also starts with the letter “M”. Can you guess where this is?

Here’s a clue…

Yup… Malacca or Melaka (local reference) is where it is. 

Picture reference:

1. Malacca River 2. Colourful trishaws waiting for fare at The Stadthuys Complex 3. Jonker Walk 4. Christ Church, Melaka at The Stadthuys Complex (built 1650, residence of Dutch governor and his officers then) 5.Melaka Art Gallery within the same complex.

A life more ordinary….

Everyone strives
for a life less ordinary

Extraordinary lives
for death’s legacy

Building monuments
burying memories.

Nobody lives
for a life more ordinary

Everyday lives
heir to sincerity

Building memories
burying monuments.

 

 

 

a new year wish…

"Swing Me, Mama" by Dominic Benhura at the Singapore Botanic Gardens
“Swing Me, Mama” by Dominic Benhura at the Singapore Botanic Gardens

For all, a new year
filled with joyful abandon
melded with trust
and held by faith.

Like a child
throwing itself full swing
safe in the grip of its mother’s
loving hands.

Have a
beautiful
new year!
