A short original dance choreographed by our very own talented Natasha!
Here’s a little fun dance video we did with some of our 12 to 14 year old dancer friends to celebrate Christmas!
May you enjoy Christmas as much as we did making this video.
We’re counting down to Christmas and a brand new Christmas dance concept video! But in the meantime, check out this dance choreography by our talented contemporary dancers back in 2015.
If you haven’t already joined us, we’ve been doing sketch walks! (Sometimes I wonder why I write this because I’m not sure who reads these posts!)
We’re planning to have some art jams in July and August period!
Our small working title at this point is: “MAKE STUFF HAPPEN”. Just to think aloud, some criteria that we’re aiming for:
- Produce at least 2 pieces of work
- These works should be something we would consider selling or making a T-Shirt out of, etc.
- It should be something insta-worthy
- Have fun and collaborate
- Be willing to have others chip in to improve ideas
- Credit others helping your creative process!
Is there anything else you would think would help an art jam? or maybe, we should even call it something different!
Comment, or just buzz us about something that you would be interested to try!
We’ve been looking at different ways to approach and explain to students how WHILE ITS DAY works! This website showcases some of the work that we’ve done with other students and young artists, of different disciplines.
In due time, we hope to make this a vibrant platform, where artists of different disciplines can meet, create, and sharpen each others’ artistic skill for the next generation of artists.
join us and lets make something new

Community and company is prime in producing the best peeled prawns through the night. It is only through the conversations we share that we begin to relish the simplest things in life.
The sheer fixation of the fish accountant counting his earnings was disrupted by two young tourists, holding up their cameras in wonderment as they stared with wide-eyes at him. He returned their gaze with a face written with vexation.
‘Crawling on all fours, he makes his way through the blueprint of the fish, so intricate, reflecting order that stands tall in the midst of chaos. Within seconds, he decides whether the fish is ready to embrace the world, whether its gills are fresh enough, or its eyes are clear enough. He grabs then roughly, with no qualms that they could still be breathing, with blood pumping through their veins.
未雨 (鱼) 绸缪
Marine consumption is vital for human survival.
This picture is a metaphor for weighing the benefits of marine consumption.
The top part of the knife that is blunt represents how time and energy are chipped away as these fish mongers dedicate their life into their work.
Survival of the Fittest
Over the years, these fish mongers have acquired the skill of productive efficiency and have applied this in their field of work. This has benefited the efficiency of the system, which reflects the importance of efficiency in society.
Before the sun rises, the people gather for business transactions. “Life & death before dawn”, is my title for this photo series. This is symbolic for us as this is my first live experience in the fishery. It is a point of reflection as Jesus’ disciples were fishermen and whose lives depend gravely on the daily catch. This photo series represents the life of a fisherman, beginning with the fishermen who bring in the fishes.
Then, preparation of the fishes that requires a lot of time and effort.
Finally, the fishes are sold to the customers. I feel that this encapsulates the whole process of being a fisherman. The irony of the liveliness and livelihood is based on the death of livestock.
