From the warmest childhood memories to the most inspiring stories of bravery, no stones were left unturned in this series of recollection.

Unseen Memories
by  Big Red Button

Unseen Memories, an installation curated by Wally Tham, seeks to foster a stronger sense of empathy for the visually impaired in their sighted compatriots.

With the help of the virtual reality device Oculus Rift, you can implant yourself in their reality and learn to adapt, participate and contribute to society without the use of sight.

Seeing Singapore
By Jenny Ng

The visually challenged may have little inkling of what yesterday’s Singapore looked like, but their memories of it are certainly rich in sound, smell, taste and touch. Filmmaker and writer Jenny Ng artistically recreates their experiences and invites you to see the past 50 years of Singapore in a completely different light.
