Cynthia Delaney Suwito
Exploring the curiosities and subtleties of daily life and the experience of time are central to Cynthia Delaney Suwito’s practice. Her works distil the complexity of the meanings we attach to everyday materials, situations and behaviours into a poetic simplicity that is relatable and engaging. It is her hope that through her work, people can slow down and reflect, seeing daily things with a different perspective and forming new approaches of thinking. Indonesian-born and Singapore-based, She has exhibited in Singapore and Indonesia, and was featured in the 2017 FORBES 30 under 30 Asia in the Arts and on BBC Asia and Channel NewsAsia.

Suwito continues to distil the complexity of the meanings we attach to everyday materials by exploring the technologies that we use daily, the ones that we overlook and the ones that we depend on. She will be exploring an object that is in most of our homes and essential in most tech-based art installations. These in-between objects are there but are rarely part of the artwork. The extension cable is an object that has the ability to connect technologies, multiply its functionality and extend its reach. The exploration of the complexity, beauty and poetics of this object that is meant to serve another will be showcased in a series of videos and found object installation. As part of her tech exploration is learning 3D rendering software for presentation and fabrication.
