September: SJI Participates in PARK(ing) Day 2017

Park(ing)Day2017.jpg
Our JC 1 students have been working with URA and SUTD for the upcoming PARK(ing) Day 2017 and will be at putting up their ideas at the parking lots along Sultan gate from 11am to 5pm on Saturday 16 September.

These 8 groups of JC 1 students and their hastags are as follows:
Group PARK(ing) Day Project
#1: Gasing (Gasing Art)
Rationale: We are intending to have our idea located at a parking lot between the art studios along Sultan Gate as well as the Malay Heritage Centre. This street is a place where art and the Malay Culture converge, and it brings out the rich heritage that the Malay culture has in Singapore. We are intending to base our idea on the convergence between art and the malay culture and we believe this idea is best suited along this street. The art pieces at the end actually represents the contributions of people towards society as everybody contributes differently towards a place but in the end, a strong community is built.

Description of Idea: We are planning to create a so called “art-game”, where guest will be able to experience the Malay culture through the traditional game, gasing, while also creating art pieces. The entire booth is made of up an arena, stands and hanging areas for the art pieces. The game, consists of the gasing, water colouring/paint, paper and an arena. The player would dip the gasing tip in the water colouring and spin the gasing into the arena. We have also thought of other different ways in order for the gasing to spin the arena while so called “painting” the canvas in the arena such as pouring the water colour/paint while onto the gasing while it is spinning in the arena. After many people, we would take the paper out and put a new piece inside in order to create many different art pieces.
#2: Rest Stop (Escape Completely) Theme: Rest Stop Rationale: To remind people that despite the fact that life is very fast-pace, rest and relax is still very important in life. People should destress themselves by playing games and interacting with other people.
#3: Cuesports (Billiards Football Fusion)
Description: To combine game style and rules of billiards with footballs as replacement for billiard balls. Basically, an upscale version of billiards but in replacement with pool sticks we will be using our feet to knock the balls into one of the 6 pots that the arena will have.

Rationale: To bring back the kampong spirit once again, we decided to create a space where the youths can spend their energy by playing this fusion game. The youths would be interested in this as Bugis Plus is a well-known and commonly frequented place for the availability of pool tables (@CueGuru). The benches that we will provide can be a resting area for the young and old alike while waiting for their food or should just want to enjoy the comforts of watching the others play.
#4: Bingsu ice-kacang (Sugar, ice and everything nice)
Theme: Sugar, ice and everything nice
Bing-su is an extremely popular Korean dessert that is well-received in Singapore. It contains elaborate ingredients like sweets, ice cream, and fruits.
However, parallels could be made with ice kachang, a dessert composed of shaved ice and traditional common ingredients like red bean. Bing-su is thus seen as the new and improved ice kachang, for which the cultural foods in Singapore are overlooked by their trendier counterparts.
To commemorate diversity, the public is thus encouraged to build the ice kachang installation to rebuild the local culture as a community.
#5: Fidget spinner (No!)
Rationale: In today’s immediate society the sole purpose of the fidget spinner has become to allow the user fun, and right now it is the embodiment of fun as it exists to provide nothing but recreation. But with some countries going so far as to ban them from schools, should we be surprised? As life would have it, we are constantly being denied a multifarious number of harmless, joy-inducing things, and our installation would be a representation of this denial.

Description of park concept: Fidget spinners attached to a large blackboard in the shape of a cancel symbol. Chalk/markers provided for anyone to come up and write what they enjoy (from hobbies to things to ideas etc.) on the blackboard and spin the fidget spinners, admiring the spinning spectacle from afar.
#6: Bottle landscape (Growing City)
Rationale: Our park does not require more than 1 lot, we chose Liang Seah Street because it is more or less an F&B street. Our park will require the participation of passers-by in the form of contributing recyclables such as plastic cups, bottles, etc.

Description of park concept: At the start of the day, we will set up a half complete structure of a city scape. This city will grow over the day as we will invite passersby to add their recyclables to the structure. Passersby who participate will also be given a cup of paint and they can use this paint to add color to the structure. The structure is essentially a symbol of community effort and it puts across the message that we can build our nation into a vibrant one if we all work together.
#7: Heritage Walk (In control)
Concept: The transitions of Singapore: To shows the different phases of the Bugis area where it was a reclaimed land initially(sandbox) and then became a Kampong and then had shophouses(like those in the road) and finally became part of the modernised Singapore.

Rationale: We are planning to show the transition of Singapore (5 stages) from a reclaimed land (represented by sand) to kampong glam to shophouses and eventually to a modern city it is now. We also want to include futuristic elements where we will place plasticine at the end so that the public can create small models of their idea of “future Singapore”. Also, there will be a blue strip of paper which represents Singapore River throughout each stage of Singapore. At each stage of Singapore, there will be signposts in our model featuring some questions about Singapore and it’s history (answers will be provided).
#8: International connection (A Pin, a Thread and the Rest of the World)
Description: We drew our inspiration from the people we saw at Bussorah Streets. We realised was that there were mostly tourists from around the world, with smatterings of locals. Thinking in the context of culture, we were able to point out many ways in which the people there were different. But then, we had to ask ourselves: What was common amongst the wide variety of people? Our answer - the Earth. A powerful idea that in itself connects each and everyone of us.

May: An SJI Musical - All's Fair in Love and War

Musical Poster 2017.png
How Far Would You Go For Your Country And The People You Love?

“Wake up you fool! War is a Zero-Sum Game.”

In a utopia set 100 years into the future, adolescents want nothing more than a sense of adventure. A chance to escape their immaculate lifestyles and experience the outside world. They hold onto innocent ideals - glory, sacrifice, love - and set forth relentlessly to pursue them.

But life isn’t so simple. Ideals can waver. Resolution can falter. And no matter what they believe in, Emilia, Scott and Marcus soon realise that it doesn’t matter. In the end, only one rule applies.

In life, All’s Fair in Love and War.
