This art installation is a visual manifestation of a poignant line within Singapore author Alvin Pang's publication What Gives Us Our Name (2011), which happens to also be the artwork title.
It draws upon the profound yet simple idea that there is a seed of hope, aspirations, dreams, power and strength implanted in every single individual that has the potential to grow into something great right now, especially as the world is going through a major reset due to COVID-19.
As regenerative spaces nestled amidst nature, the seed pods carve out room for weary souls to recharge and cancel out the stress in everyday life. In doing so, the experience amplifies the notion that even if one feels tiny and helpless like a seed, one contains the potential to pursue dreams and actualise a life that counts.
The work is commissioned by the National Art Council’s Public Art Trust as part of “Rewritten: The World Ahead of Us”.
