The Very Wishing story is a story about a boy and a girl, each discovering a magical marble that opens up a new world of adventure.
At night the marble lights up, the boy and the girl flew out of their room, following the magical light marble. The boy comes to a fascinating forest with light balls and the girl arrives at an enchanted cave, with glittering balloons of all shapes and sizes, glowing in the dark. Together, they meet at the magical waterfalls, playing with the tiny light balls, forming light structures that they imagined out of their own minds.
This narrative is the basis of the 3-part ‘Very Wishing Story’, a collaboration between Very Small Exhibition & Sum Qian Yu (QY), which transforms Queen Street into a canvas for Night Festival 2016. For more info visit www.verywishingstory.com

Under the education system in Singapore, many ‘mini-robots’ have since been churned out, feeling a sense of loss when they are thrown into ‘self-directed’ learning environment and lack the initiative to explore their dreams and aspirations. When compared to Finland’s education system which is more oriented toward ‘free thinking’ and ‘play’, the laid-back approach may encourage a relaxed mind, which in turn could be said to prove effective at developing students who have greater comprehension. This project is targeted at parents with children and family in Singapore to encourage learning to play.

Nowadays, people and the young generation are becoming more unaware of the mid-autumn festival. Even when people do celebrate this special season, it is to eat the moon cake and play with lanterns, the underlying spirit of unity and bringing togetherness in the families seems to be lacking.
Thus the message behind this project is to encourage families to gather together on the mid autumn day and also to inform and educate the story of the Mid-Autumn festival. This is a Mid-Autumn event to be held in 2015, where Mandarin Hotel would be selling moon cakes and using this informative illustration.
