This artwork depicts 7 polaroid shots with different scenes in it that have a historical importance to Toa Payoh. To show the historical side and interesting sights in Toa Payoh we painted multiple important structures to show how Toa Payoh slowly built up. Some of the items we used are not only historical but also have a personal semblance to it. For example, Anshita remembers going to the Toa Payoh town park with her family when she was young to fly kites and relax while looking at the celadon blue pond from the stone bridge. Hence, there is a girl flying a kite next to a stone bridge. She also remembers her brother jumping up and trying to fold his hands into paws to imitate the dinosaur when she brought him to the dinosaur playground. Miracle fondly remembers looking at the dragon pillar when she walked to school during her childhood and admired the majestic sculpture. Rachel remembers throwing her hands in the air and enjoying the exhilarating rush of air zooming past her as she slid down the stone slide of the dragon playground.
