Sky Island Adventure with CAI JUN LEE

CAI JUN LEE is a multidisciplinary Singapore based visual artist

Sky Island is a fantastical place based on collections of mythology, fairy tale, folklore and fantasy stories that record the existence of the legendary heaven realm. Symbolical imagery and motif were adapted from these stories, revised and fused with modern pop cultures. It provides a quest-like adventure to uncover this legendary place through a fantastical and playful approach. It provokes different intentions, forms and functions to enhance the psychological state of the mind to dream of other possibilities in this realistic and structured world.
