How To Study A Rubber Seed (2018)
|Rubber was one of Malaya’s most important cash crops. Henry Ridley experimented with it in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, discovering a way to tap the tree extensively without destroying it.|
In this work, the artist invited audiences to approach rubber differently. They could experiment with it across different stations in the installation. The work encouraged curiosity, without agenda for exploitation or profit.
