This Touch adaptation is an easily portable version of Raising Spirits and Restoring Souls, which was commissioned by the Singapore Art Museum for its SG50 exhibition, 5 Stars: Art Reflects on Peace, Justice, Equality, Democracy and Progress. The sound installation is a commentary on progress, one of the key values represented by the stars in the Singapore flag, and is made with the same materials as the original artwork.
