Singapore Queenstown Secondary School Mural Project
In our design concept, we have carefully crafted a captivating visual narrative aimed at inspiring students to recognise the critical urgency of taking action against climate change. Our approach involves creating a dynamic synergy between four distinct wall designs, each thoughtfully interconnected with iconic Singaporean landmarks to convey a powerful message. Central to this immersive experience is the main wall, which serves as a visual masterpiece resembling a time machine, intensifying the visual impact and fostering a sense of immediate engagement. This main visual serves as the foundation for the overarching narrative, guiding the audience through a seamless flow of themes, beginning with climate change, transitioning into the realm of water sustainability, and culminating in a call to action that engages and empowers students to become active participants in the fight against climate change. This holistic design not only captures attention but also encourages reflection and meaningful engagement, making it a compelling and impactful educational tool.
This visual storyline vividly portrays the profound impact of climate change.
1. The artwork nearest to us represents the present moment, while the midpoint deeper within the artwork symbolizes an uncertain future.
2. On the left side of the artwork, we emphasize URBAN (ENERGY AND SOCIAL) SUSTAINABILITY, encompassing community social effects (such as collaborative green initiatives and increased recycling), HDB community spaces, greater utilization
of public transportation and cycling, and the adoption of solar panels, among other aspects. The students depicted in the artwork are attired in Queenstown Secondary School uniforms.
3. In the middle of the artwork, we illustrate the effects of CLIMATE CHANGE, including ice melting, rising sea levels, the greenhouse effect, and symbolically incorporate a fan to signify the necessity of lowering Earth's temperature, among other
4. On the right side, we address FOOD SUSTAINABILITY, focusing on vertical farming, food waste reduction and food insecurity, community resilience through food donations, and the consumption of "ugly" food. We also spotlight issues of
animal extinction and endangered species, particularly those relevant to Singapore.
Wall 2 focuses on Singapore's greenery and the plight of endangered animals, such as the pangolin.
Wall 3 emphasizes the topic of WATER SUSTAINABILITY, featuring iconic elements like Sentosa and Singapore cable cars.
It showcases students from Queenstown Secondary School in their uniforms, engaging with the viewers.
The artwork will also include depictions of endangered sea animals. Additionally, two acrylic stands will be installed on the wall to provide students with a platform to showcase their sustainability-related artworks and ideas.
Wall 4 serves as an action wall, encouraging students to brainstorm and formulate action plans for addressing climate change and promoting sustainability. In the center, an action board will be installed for students to document their plans and strategies.
In the bottom right corner, we highlight the importance of plants in preventing soil erosion, specifically mangrove forests and reeds. Students will have the opportunity to write sustainability pledges on leaf-shaped stickers and attach them to the mangrove forest.
In the bottom left corner, a footprint image will include a QR code for students to scan and check their carbon footprint.
Similar to Wall 2, one or two acrylic stands will be affixed to the wall to facilitate the showcasing of students' sustainability-themed artworks and ideas. NFC tag readers will be incorporated to record students' climate change actions, such as reducing plastic usage, minimizing food waste, and utilizing public transportation.
