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.

      Hi Jasmine

      The heritage journeys publications will not be for sale in future as they are intended to be used as teaching materials in future Janus Education programmes targeted for schools’ students. The remaining three should be for sales in local bookstores.

      Do check out their individual pages for more updates and info.

      Playtime with YeYe
      Nini Eat First Talk Later
      Heritage Journeys
      Designing Cultures

      Cheers!
