The National Defense Services of Singapore has recently completed its 50 years of establishment and to mark the celebration 50 artists took an excursion to 20 campsites located at ground zero to find inspiration and convert them into 130 patriotic artworks. These are currently exhibited at ION Orchard Shopping Mall, Singapore as a part of memento for their bravery.
