This wind kinetic sculpture was commissioned to commemorate the 1st ever Youth Olympic Games. The global awareness of the need to love our earth inspired the meaning behind the work. The total number of leaves on the tree counts the number of nations in the world. The wind harnessed to create movement and splendor reminds us that when nature is left to itself, the balance creates beauty for us humans.
To be a meaningful artwork that speaks about our current global concerns.
Close working relationship with Youth Olympic Games Committee, Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore and generous sponsor City Development made this project possible.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
