Kent Ridge MRT Station (CC24) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line in Singapore.

Art in Transit[edit]

Under the Art in Transit programme, a multimedia work entitled Poetry Mix-Up was commissioned for the station. Created by Mixed Reality Lab from the National University of Singapore, this interactive piece allows members of the public to SMS a line of up to 60 characters to the program, and it will generate a short poem based on the submission to be shown on a digital display on the lift shaft at the platform level. These TV screens are however deactivated, and is only usable during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2012 Summer Olympics.
