Sticking his neck out for art

Cardboard sculptor Bartholomew Ting (right) stuck his neck out at an exhibition when he displayed a 6m-tall giraffe made out of cardboard.

The 34-year-old's creation, made out of interlocking flat-pack pieces, was among dozens on show at a Makers' Meetup last Friday.

The event was organised by the makers' community and held at the Home-Fix Experience Centre in Tai Seng Avenue.

Mini-LED stickers that light up upon contact with conductive materials and plastic models made with 3-D printers were also on display.
