SG Heart Map

SG Heart Map-02

The SG Heart Map is a celebration of the places in Singapore that define home for us. This project provides opportunities for Singapore residents to reflect and connect based on the special moments and shared memories of these places which define Singapore as HOME as well as articulate their dreams/aspirations for the future of their HOME.

Over a period of 6 months, 90,000+ and counting contributions were collected. The stories were shared and celebrated through translation by 7 lead artists into various art forms. These art forms were showcased across the island in 5 main and several satellite celebratory events and exhibitions throughout the year-long celebration. A culmination of all the stories collected, places celebrated and art forms co-created between the artists and the public was exhibited in a finale event at the Marina Bay Floating Platform.

The 7 lead artists were filmmaker Royston Tan (@filmr), founder of BooksActually Kenny Leck (@kenny.leck), illustrator Michael Ng Mindflyer (@mindflyer), sound artist Zul Mahmod (@zulmahmod), founder of DECK and the Singapore International Photography Festival Gwen Lee (@deck_sg), the Urban Sketchers Singapore (@USSG), and filmmaker and motion designer William Chan (@tmrrwstudio).
