Importance of Unimportance
In this exhibition, artist Ong Cai Bin offers a personal glimpse of her observations of daily routines. She questions the intrusiveness of public surveillance and mimics close circuit televisions by prying into the subconscious state of idleness and mundane actions. This eye-opening exhibition compels the viewer to imagine the world being shaped by ordinary people, not those in positions of power or authority.
