A sculpture by Singaporean artist Tan Wee Lit comprising six shiny metal discs is one of 20 artworks in the new Apec park in Danang, Vietnam. Tan's sculpture, titled Incon-Junction, is made with stainless steel and represents a solitary ring that runs in a continuous loop, between different dimensions. It is meant to suggest the invisible connection between Apec economies and the strength of their ties, both of which have come under pressure amid uncertainty over trade policy and political tension in some of the Apec economies.
