Art in Transit[edit]

"Tracing Memories" by the LASALLE College of the Arts is an artwork that convey the impression of a motherboard. The artwork attempts to examine the binary reflections of what Singapore's youths share while living in a city through the latest gadgets and gear, as well as sentimentality for history, tradition and memorabilia.
