Selection criteria for the proposal included ideas on how to use the V&A’s collections for inspiration to create new work reports Art Asia News.

Choo’s interest in the metaphysical led to a curiosity about whether ‘old’ objects still hold within them any kind of energy transferred from their creator – the idea that a living person could leave behind an imprint. Choo’s aim is to find a way to record the visual expression of these energies from people and to find another way for people to experience these objects apart from merely seeing these objects as things.

Choo has works in the permanent collection of the Singapore Art Museum, the private collection of United Overseas Bank and has exhibited in New York, the UK, Singapore and Australia.
