Synopsis:

Sensing Punggol is a collaborative artwork with the residents of Punggol.

Unearth intriguing stories about living in Punggol as you view the larger-than-life "data sculptures" being showcased in a travelling exhibition at various locations in the town. These artworks were created from neighbourhood environmental data collected by Punggol residents of all ages.
