What does it mean to follow your dreams?

How far can a flock of propellers go? Singaporean sculptor Mr Zainudin Samsuri drew inspiration from Malay proverbs, fishing and childhood toys for this work.

Explore Dayung Sampan and discover objects that seem to resemble a foot and a birdcage. Look through the periscopes, what do you see? Row your boat and follow your dreams. Let your imagination take flight!
