kuanth x ABSOLUT x Design Singapore x ION

In conjunction with Singapore Design Festival 2009, a design installation competition will be called among five invited designers (fFurious, H55, Kuanth, Kult and Sokkuan) to create a word art installation that captures the ABSOLUT’s brand’s anthem, "IN AN ABSOLUT WORLD, Doing Things Differently Leads to Something Exceptional."
After the Singapore Design Festival, the five installations will travel as a roving exhibit to nightlife hotspots in Singapore from December 2009 – February 2010.
Exhibition venue: ION
Date: 20 – 30 NOV 2009

My concept:
I want people to open up their minds, and to see ordinary things differently.

To interpret this idea, I created a cabinet of curiosities, or wonder-room, in the form of an acrylic greenhouse, with bits and pieces of nature distilled in perfection.

By capturing nature in a state of stillness, I hope to inspire viewers to take a moment and look at how wonderful it is, thus leading them to realize that there are more remarkable things in nature that surrounds them. All they need to do is to feel the morning breeze, to listen to the wind or whistle with the birds.

They may soon find there are exceptional experience in the simplest things if they see, do and feel differently.

kuanth x A6 /future/ - Charity Auction Party

Creative [SIN]ergy presents A6 /future/, a collaboration between 22 illustrators from both Singapore and the UK

Previews: 21 – 27 September 2009
Charity Auction Party: 26 September 2009, 6pm – 9pm
(For an invitation to the Auction Party, Please RSVP info@creativesinergy.com )

Creative [SIN]ergy presents,
A6 /future/ - a collaboration between 22 illustrators from both Singapore and the UK. Supported by the Singapore International Foundation, The Central Illustration Agency and Tiger Beer. A6 /future/ invites these artists to share their thoughts, hopes and dreams about their future through the use of A6 sized postcards.

Each illustrator will be tasked to pose a question on what he/she feels about the future - express these thoughts through illustrations on half an A6 postcard, before posting them to another illustrator. He/she will then think of a possible answer to complete the template. There will be a mutual exchange of ideas between artists. They are also encouraged to be both imaginative and inspiring in this process.

The completed artworks will be showcased at the Idea Generation Gallery during this year's London Design Festival between 21 - 27 September 2009. The 22 postcards will also be auctioned to raise funds for Envision, a UK registered charity. Come join us for the Charity Auction Party on Saturday 26th September 2009. Please RSVP info@creativesinergy.com for an invitation.

New work

A sneak preview of my new work, will reveal soon.

kuanth x Vision Mag China

I did this interview for quite a long while.:P

kuanth x Tiger

"If time could standstill,
Let it do so on a high,
A congenial high,
Be high on life,
Soaring above all earthly woes,
Where only the spirited few dwell."

I guess the project is on hold or died off. But I love this piece of work sooooo much.
