"There comes in every generation within a society a special moment when someone does something incredibly bold and iconic that you wished you fucking did it. Dan Wong, a graduate from the school of Art, Design and Media – Nanyang Technological University – illustration works not only is orgasmic to the eyes but puts whatever conception you had of the island city State Singapore in a complete spin.
“Emmohee” is his critic of the Singaporean education system. However, knowing most people who haven’t had the opportunity to actually see art in a global sense immediately dissects the work as piece with no real importance. But should you actually take the time to understand the incredibly mind boggling state of the Singaporean education system, this work is beyond a satire, it is almost a maddening scream into a system where the young implode within themselves in a situation as dire as it were a nightmare one cannot wake up from."
Many thanks to The Ride Etiquette girls for inviting us for their awesome awesome event to share a piece of our mind with our public transportation piece " 02 : emmartee ".
We are all residents of the same address — living in a home built by decisions made in closed rooms. Public policies, yet made in private. Now, the moment has come to throw the doors wide open. The Smoke-filled Room is an artistic exploration of our relationship with public policy since Singapore's time of independence. For years, decisions made on top have played a part in our personal choices — influencing the way we live, the qualities we value, and the things we desire. From education to healthcare, housing to public transport: how intimate is the role of public policy in your domestic life?
Our turn, our conversation, our stories to tell. It’s time to clear the air.
