Pulau Semakau is a smell-free, scenic and clean island, home to a large biodiversity, especially known for its corals and also Singapore's first and only landfill. This intriguing contrast was what inspired my artwork in which I portray smooth corals growing out of a bottle which comprises many sharp polygons. The main reason behind the choice in form is due to trash's association with being dangerous to ecosystems which I represented with several abrupt polygons. The corals were made smoother as they are often thought to be gentle and fragile. My intention behind this piece is to show that these things can coexist perfectly like on Pulau Semakau despite how humanity views them as polar opposites.
