The Whispering Wallpaper

Date & Time

24 Feb - 5 Mar, all day


Plaza Singapura,

Inspired by the magic of tin can telephones from our childhood, the Whispering Wallpaper is a visually arresting collage of various quirky, beautifully illustrated characters, all of which come from picture books and graphic novels created by Singapore authors and illustrators. By using a ‘listening cup’ device that reacts to sensors embedded in each character on the wall, visitors will hear whispers of a excerpt from the picture book where the character is from , recorded by the author. This creates an intimate, immersive experience for the listener that promotes and celebrates the talent and stories from this literary genre in Singapore.
