The work explores in visual form the intersection of written languages from the region—including English—in a reflection upon the myriad cultures and immigrants that make up Singapore. Referencing the earliest forms of writing, within the artwork are ‘words’ that may not be read in the conventional sense but that are suggestive of language and its interwoven nature. Letter-forms in Chinese, Jawi, Tamil, and Latin are layered one upon another and, where they intersect, are rhythmically composed. The artwork presents the multi-cultural mix of language as the effect of multi-culturalism and invites the viewer to ‘hover’ between reading and looking, in an understanding that occurs through an aesthetic intuition.
