Documentation of sculpture in Singapore #2

Artist: Jaume Plensa

Title: Singapore Soul

Words such as “unity”, “justice”, “happiness” and “prosperity” form the seated human figure made of painted stainless steel. The mix of letters and ideograms in Singapore’s national languages of Malay, Tamil, Chinese and English cast shadows in sunlight, and also when lit from inside the 5m-tall sculpture at night.

Commissioned by developer Keppel Land for its Ocean Financial Centre.
