Art installation by S'pore Polytechnic aims to bring home dangers of drug abuse
14 Jul 2021
As part of their final-year project, two SP students have tapped on innovative technology to project virtual images onto a mannequin to tell the story of a promising young athlete who fell prey to drug abuse. The installation, a collaboration between the Central Narcotics Bureau and SP, was conceptualised by Ms Lumna Chitrakar and Ms Crystel Chia Qi Hui. Both students graduated from SP's Media, Arts and Design School last year with a diploma in visual effects and motion graphics. SP's deputy principal (development) Georgina Phua opined on how the contemporary art form will make the anti-drug abuse message delivery more appealing and impactful for younger audiences.
