Polka dots on trunks ;)



Not a new biological disease...POLKA dot is used becos polka dot is kinetic; it's a circle, it's never-ending.

When thot of kinetic energy, it's thoughts of dancing, not just fashion but theatrical.
This is part of the Singapore Biennale, 60 trees along Orchard Road have received a make-over.

They were dressed in red and white polka dotted strips of cloth which took 15 workers an average of four hours to wrap one tree.

This is a very unusual and artistic concept, certainly livens the street!

it's really quite nice...a feeling like 'strawberry shortcake' living under the big mushrooms with polka dots ;D

glad that even by the photo it makes you excited! :) you should check out the programmes then, http://www.singaporebiennale.org/ ...it wasn't a good time now to take more photos about the Biennale, becos of the haze. You can even see the hazy situation from this photo...
