Walter is an enormous white inflatable bunny created by Singapore-based illustrator, artist and all-round creative Dawn Ng. Her creature measures 6 by 4 meters and was inserted in different places throughout Singapore’s landscape of standard flats and heartland enclaves, in order to create scenarios filled with surprise and wonder. She took Walter to 30 different spots in and around the city. By placing something surreal in a totally ‘invisible normal’ scenery, Ng aims to enable people to rediscover the beauty of places and the extraordinary in their everyday lives.
Last month I spent a good five days in Thailand’s capital Bangkok. I loved it. Everyone who has ever visited the city will remember it for a few things — extreme traffic congestion, little family dwellings overshadowed by state-of-the-art shopping malls, organized chaos, friendly people. And, last but not least, great food that’s available on every corner of the street.
