SIF-BC AiRx 2013/2014 brings together Singapore artist-architect Randy Chan and British artist Philippa Lawrence to create a site‐specific collaborative work Angles of Incidence at the Singapore Botanic Gardens from 14 January to 23 March 2014.  

Angles of Incidence comprises a family of reflective multi-faceted steel structures, some of which patterned with crystal elements, placed beneath the canopy of an 80-year old Kapok tree to create a dynamic relationship between the installation and its environment. Visitors will experience the oscillation between the installation and nature as the reflective installation merges into and emerges from the landscape.
