Secrecy by Ratpack

You have to create some space for yourself away from the demands of society. To make a quiet space for yourself where you feel undisturbed. Be transported to a quiet space of futuristic magic and serenity within the grounds of the Armenian Church.
Secrecy brings cool light to the hallowed grounds, a nod to the patron saint of the Armenian Church: St Gregory the Illuminator. In the artist's futuristic interpretation, the garden is bathed in a spectrum of calm neon tones with an ambient soundscape in the background. These colours bring to mind energy, the blue flame of a stove top, a flash of lighting across the sky. Mostly, its subtlety reminds city dwellers of the magic of electricity that runs in the veins of our great urban metropolises. It is a quiet hum that on a microcosmic level, mimics the mysterious pulse of life that runs in all living organisms.
Interestingly enough, in 1909 the Armenian Church was one of the first buildings in Singapore to have electricity.
