Upper Changi MRT Station – Art In Transit (I Am Anonymous)

I Am Anonymous‘ comprises prints and texts collected in 2013 from 269 students of the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) who, upon graduation, would be embarking on careers, livelihoods, and the pursuit of their dreams. They are asked to complete the statement ‘I am __________’; the responses received from these youth in their prime express aspirations, reflections, and concerns with which they identify. Although written in their own hand and bearing the mark of their fingers, their revelations, nevertheless, remain anonymous. With this, the artist presents both a public disclosure of the realities of youth at a threshold of life, and the possibility of viewers relating to these sentiments as they pass through the station.

    Hi, would like to let you know that there exists a B1 level but access is restricted. The floor is originally meant for shops (B1 can be seen from the lift at exit C) but it was never implemented. There are also stairs that lead to B1 at the exit but they are locked as well.
