SINGAPORE - Using a wide variety of different media such as metal sculptures and recycled materials, students and staff across all three colleges of the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) have created a myriad of artworks for the biennial ITE Visual Arts Show.

The exhibition, held at ITE College West, opened on Thursday (Aug 4) and will run until Saturday (Aug 6). Parliamentary Secretary for Culture, Community and Youth, Mr Baey Yam Keng, graced Thursday's opening.

This year's show, themed "Seasons", aims to showcase the transient movement between art and science. The works were made by 1,300 students and 200 staff, with more than 300 individual pieces and 60 team projects.

One of the works showcased was Winds of Change, an installation art piece that used electric fans to create a self-sustaining mini wind tornado to keep two pieces of chiffon cloth moving in a dynamic dancing motion along with the dancer, student Teo Ai Qi, 19.

Other techniques, media and materials used for the show's art pieces include plaster molding, projection mapping, garments, PVC pipes, potato printing, floral arrangement, photography, paper, acrylics, water colours, stained glass, and make-up.
