Behind the Project
Collecting the Tile Artworks from Neighbourhood
To invite their neighbours to take part in the project, Kenneth and Huiwen held clay art workshops around Hougang. More than a thousand people, from kids to pioneers, attended the workshops and placed their own marks on the tiles. From their thumbprints, to icons, different shapes, and landmarks, each neighbour shared memories and stories through these small artworks.
Meet Some of the Artists
Here are some the neighbours who took time to share their stories and art! You might recognize some of them!
The Tile Artworks Up-Close
It may be a Tembusu tree from a distance but up-close, each tile is an artwork of its own. Here are some of the mini masterpieces by the people of Hougang.
