Modelled after the dimensions of the Changi Tree - what is believed to be Singapore's tallest recorded tree, The Time Tree imagines what a tree older than 200 years might look like.

Reflecting on Singapore's pre-modern history and the plurality of narratives, it draws attention to a longer, more meditative concept of history - one that is measured in the life of botany as opposed to human markers such as founding dates. The form of a stump is deliberate, embodying power, vulnerabilty, regeneration, and infinite possibilities.

At night, the tree is illuminated with light emanating through the gaps and cracks, adding to a sense of mystery and unknowability. The Time Tree is one of the largest public artworks in Singapore created using 3D printing technology.

The Time Tree is currently on view at Fort Canning Park until October 2019, after which it will travel to Jurong Lake Gardens from November to December 2019, then to Raffles Place Park in January 2020.

The work is a commission by the National Arts Council's Public Art Trust in commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial in 2019.
