1. you can pause the movie for toilet break and continue from where you left off
2. you can have your ice-cream and eat it too
3. you do not need to listen to other movie-goers’ commentary (punctuated with vulgarities)
4. you do not have to tolerate inconsiderate movie-goers talking relatively loud on their mobile phones
5. you can watch a movie alone without being acutely aware that you are… alone.

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

victor tan’s art installation on display at concourse steps of the esplanade from 16 july til 16 october 2011.

i am amazed by his attention to details with the wire. and boy, he must have spent months (or years?) putting this together.

i wonder where will all these installations be stored after the display?
