A sweet email received from a visitor today:

“Hi,

I had gone to Esplanade today to make the booking for my show in June. On my way back I stumbled upon your exhibition (I am fairly new to Singapore so still ignorant about the Arts world)…..I felt it….each and every sound through the frames….even though the only sounds around me were of people running to the mrt and kids skating through…I had been very agitated and stressed with my upcoming event….but your frames and the series just engulfed me into it….and I experienced the sense of momentary Shanti…am touched by each and every sound that you spoke about…it does stir me and humbles me profoundly….always brings me to my present moment ….Thank you for the magical experience today!

M.B.”
