THE MANSION artbook is a tribute to finding peace and understanding ourselves. It is a narrative from a house which, like many others in Singapore, is on the verge of extinction. While facing the threat of being compromised - sold and demolished to be replaced with a new, more modern development – I believe it encapsulates the city spirit and its best community traditions. It has also provided me with peace when I needed it most and, metaphorically, when I almost faced my own extinction under hyped civilization.
