Since January 2015, 75 school children in Kintamani, Bali have been working to harvest water hyacinths from Lake Batur, one of the world’s largest and most spectacular volcanic calderas, to produce an interactive art installation. This dual-nation, community art project is piloted by artist collective and social space Ketemu Project ⋅ Space.
On 9 April 2015, the art installation, titled “Danau Imajinasi Kami” or “Our Lake of Imagination”, co-created by these children was completed and shipped to Singapore and displayed at the Marina Bay Sands. A selected few of the children will be travelling to Singapore – also celebrating its 50th year of independence – to represent their peers at the “Torch Up Ceremony” in the 28th SEA Games.
From now to August 2015, Ketemu Project, in collaboration with Brack, is fundraising for “Our Lake of Imagination”. Help us bring the full experience of “Our Lake of Imagination” to Singapore and to the children of Kintamani, Bali.
