Art in Transit: “Planting Shadows” by Vertical Submarine
This work is a further exploration of the groups’ interest in botany, and linking it to visual language and history. Shadows of tropical plants are used as furtive images to echo the presence and absence of nature in our urban environment.
These shadows cast on the walls of the station are adapted from botanical drawings produced during the colonial era to signify and trace the past to the present landmark of Gardens by the Bay where we see the cultivation of nature.
