I am armed with skills in AutoDesk 3DSMax and basic knowledge on related design software such as AutoCAD , Illustrator , Photoshop and Revit , as well as a desire to learn and improve my craft . DOB - 02/03/1996 EDUCATION HISTORY 2003-2008 ST.HILDAS’ PRIMARY SCHOOL 2009-2013 HAI SING CATHOLIC SECONDARY SCHOOL 2014-2017 NANYANG POLYTECHNICDIPLOMA IN SPACE AND INTERIOR DESIGN WORK EXPERIENCE Internship with Carpenter’s Design Group Pte Ltd
HYPER-REALITY - school project The Starting Point IN THE BEGINNING OF THE PROJECT , OUR TASK WAS TO LIVE A DAY OF A LIFE IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES . IN THAT DAY , I BECAME A 20-YEAR OLD SINGAPOREAN , LIVING IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY , GOING TO A FOREIGN UNIVERSITY , EXPERIENCEING A DIFFERENT LIFE . I SAW THE SAME THINGS SHE SAW , I ATE THE SAME THINGS SHE ATE . AUSTRALIA
THE NEXT STEP WAS TO COMBINE FANTASY AND REALITY , USING HYPER-REALITY TO EXPERIENCE THAT SAME DAY IN OUR REAL BODIES , WITHIN A CERTAIN SPACE . OVERLAPPING THE MAPS AND DATA , I WENT ON A CERTAIN ROUTE IN BUGIS , PASSING BY CERTAIN LOCATIONS AND SEEING CERTAIN THINGS . USING THE SIMILARITIES IN THE LOCATION , I CAME UP WITH KEYWORDS , AND AN ABSTRACT SENTENCE .

‘Expressive adrenaline will precisely slice the soul . Focus , in tandem with a flurry of talent , results in a truly free creation .’ FROM THIS SENTENCE , I CREATED A DEVICE THAT COULD SHOWCASE THIS WORDS WITHIN THE SENTENCE , THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO SENSE THE SENTENCE , THROUGH THE USE OF THE DEVICE . AS SHOWN , THE DEVICE IS A TWO PIECE POLE THAT CAN BE REATTACHED TO ONE . ON OPPOSING ENDS ARE THE ‘PRECISION’ AND THE ‘FLURRY’ OF THE SENTENCE , AND USING IT IN ‘TANDEM’ DRAWS OUT ITS FULL POTENTIAL OF THE SENTENCE IT WAS CREATED FROM . THIS DEVICE ACTS AS A PAINTBRUSH , IMMORTALISING THE MOVEMENTS OF THE ACTIONS ITS USERS GO THROUGH , AND CAPTURES IT AS THE ‘CREATION’ OF THE ACTIONS . WITH SWEEPING MOTIONS AND SLICING ACTIONS , THE CREATION IS A MIXTURE OF BOTH PRECISION AND WILD CREATIVITY .
-THE DEVICE , RESTING ON A BLANK CANVAS
The Second Step CREATION OF AN ABSTRACT STORY THAT COMPLEMENTS THE DEVICE , AS WELL AS CREATION OF 5 PICTURES TO COMPLEMENT THE STORY .
5 PICTURES OF THE STORY
The Death of Flight By a stroke of luck , that day , that moment coincided with the performersâ€™ sudden coup d'etat . As the aliens were immersing in food and drink , nonchalantly watching our most talented humans , swinging their polearms and swords in brilliant swordplay , the performers steeled themselves for the battle ahead . Slowly taking flight , disguising it as part of the act , they upped the tempo of their swings and strikes , whirling their blades in precision to a frenzied rhythm . And as the alien sentries first barged into the room , warning of the approaching hordes of humans , the upper echelon of the aliens let down their guard , and we struck . In a sweeping motion , we decapitated the heads of the aliens closest to us , and swung around , in a flurry of movement . We moved in ways even we thought impossible , evading gunfire and striking at the enemy with speed and precision , fueled by the adrenaline of hope and wrath combined . Caught off guard , the upper echelon and their guards within the hall were decimated quickly , just as the hordes of resistance fighters plowed into what was once our capital of the world . Armed with nothing but mere wooden and tools fashioned with the best of our ability , of course we would eventually be no match for them . But we overpowered them with numbers , using our comradesâ€™ sacrifice to push forward .
The Final Creation THE SPACE CREATED FROM THE PROCESS IS A BASEMENT MAZE , LEADING TO A TOWERING PAVILION IN A GARDEN . THE FEELINGS INVOKED WITHIN THE SPACE CLOSELY RESEMBLES THE STORYLINE . FROM THE BOTTOM , THE USER OF THE SPACE MUST FIGHT FOR HIS FREEDOM , SCALING OBSTACLES THAT REQUIRES PRECISE MOVEMENT TO OVERCOME .ALTHOUGH THE ROAD TO FREEDOM IS DIFFICULT , HE SEES HOPE .THE PATH IS UNOBSTRUCTED , THE CEILING MADE OF GLASS , THE BRIGHT RAYS OF LIGHT SHINING IN WHICH MOTIVATES HIM TO CLIMB HIGHER . THE STAIRWAY IN WHICH HE WALKS ON AND THE RAILINGS is ENTIRELY MADE OF GLASS AND HE CAN FEEL THE TRANSITION OF THE SPACES , FROM EARTH TO SKY .

PORTFOLIO This project allows a glimpse into the lives of servicemen fighting for the country . The space is designed to emulate spatial qualities that differ from our own , to showcase the rigidity of a different life . By going through the space , users are brought into a new , unfamiliar world , and through the senses , learn more about the experiences servicemen go through .
An important structural and aesthetical element in the design , steel allows expression of rigidity while retaining its elegance. Long steel will be used for structure , weathering steel for the facade .
Tempered glass is used within the space often , as a medium to create an open-concept building , where the dominant face of the design is made out of glass panels .
Reinforced concrete is a staple in most buildings , as well as an common element within military walls . As such , this material was chosen as the main material, to be complemented by glass and steel .
A DIFFERENT LIFEThe Exhibition
Located within the heart of the city , Fort Canning remains a site filled with historical value . By fusing my intended space into the very earth , i aim to use the spatial qualities of this design , both interior and exterior , even the earth it will be embedded in , to symbolise the importance of defending our country and our roots .
