‘Writing While Walking And Other Stories’ is the result of an eight-hour meander around Singapore by the artist Heman Chong (@hemanchong), uniquely defined by the deliberate absence of punctuation or capitalisation. In compressing walking and writing into a single process, the work further signifies the act of walking in capturing the everyday. - Head on down to SAM’s hoardings in the city centre to view this artwork on a spectacular expanded scale.
