Some time in December last year, I made a submission to the Singapore Biennale 2013 team to include my 'Progress' signs as part of the event.
Some days back, I found out that the Land Transport Authority had beat me to it! I used to wonder about the feasibility of my proposed placement. To my delight, LTA has provided a real life demonstration. Cheers!
Our philosophy series, the Socrates Exchange returns with the question “What is progress”. Centuries of development have allowed us to live longer and advance in ways we never could have imagined, but with over population, depleted resources, and nuclear weapons, some say we’ve progressed too far. Does progress have an ending point? Is too much progress a bad thing? Can one person’s progress harm the progress of another? Can progress in science, technology and human rights harm progress in religion and morality
Some thoughts about things.
