Walking Through Haw Par Villa

Walking Through Haw Par Villa

Walking through Haw Par Villa is an interactive installation that uses optical illusion featuring the Haw Par Villa - a very special Singaporean theme park.

The installation gathers and processes the park’s visual information which had been collected during a walk by the artists. It interacts with visitors who walk past, showing them optical illusions that are misleading, as the eye and brain make unconscious inferences.
 
This work deals with both personal and collective memories of Singapore’s past and highlights the complexity of the notion of heritage and tradition.
