‘Kopi O’ is inspired by Danielle’s observations during lockdown at the height of Covid in Singapore. As strict rules led to a surge in food delivery, Danielle became intrigued by the mounting delivery packaging. As a fervent recycler, she used this packaging to create a commentary on the times, exploring the juxtaposition of a corporate giant and a traditional coffee cup, symbolizing the rich history and culture of Singapore and Malaysia. ‘Kopi O’ reflects Danielle’s fascination with Singapore’s history and community, capturing the contrasts and contradictions of the place in a captivating artwork.
