Serendipity - the happenstance of good fortune and chancing upon something by accident. In this image, we notice the iconic public housing estates of Singapore, with multi-storey carparks and familiar lampposts that flank the streets along one's drive or journey home. Perhaps it is serendipity that led people to reside peacefully in Singapore, co-existing in harmony in a multi-racial community that is protected against corruption and crime. Or perhaps the serendipity extends to the artist herself, being able to create a definitive style for herself, debunking art rules of maintaining a single perspective in order to make a cohesive, dynamic piece.
