Whimsical yet practical, Watching The World Go Round grew out of the artist’s love of cycling and her weekly visits to the park. The interactive carousel-like sculpture offers park visitors the opportunity to unwind, bond with family, and pause for introspection – all while getting a fitness workout.
This artwork was part of Stop and Smell the Ang Mo Dan, a series of public artworks commissioned by the Public Art Trust that invite audiences to slow down and remember the history of Ang Mo Kio while taking a new look at the neighbourhood.
Watching The World Go Round was on display from 8 to 25 March 2018.
