A sculpture to commemorate the successful completion of the cleanup of the Singapore River/Kallang Basic Catchment
sponsored by Singapore Airlines
This sculpture, Joyous Rivers, epitomizes the eternal flow of live-giving water. Meandering and interlocking patterns of rivers and catchments are captured on its base, whilst joyous, dancing waves, frozen in motion, portray the abstract form of mass celebration of a happy event. The waves surge forward in one direction, at a 60 degree angle in one direction, symbolizing Singaporeans striving with one common purpose towards a better tomorrow. Night lights enliven the liquid forms with an animated, shimmering glow.
