Tri-annually, a new exhibition awaits little ones at The Artground and at the moment, it is an art exhibition entitled “I SΦ with my Little Eye”. For those of us who don’t speak Greek, Φ is the Greek letter “phi” and the exhibition title is a clever play on the name of the popular children’s game, “I spy with my little eye”.
If you have yet to visit The Artground, it is a free (yay, free!) and air-conditioned (no wet weather plan required!) play space at Goodman Arts Centre for children under 12 years old.
Fun With Shapes
From 9 November 2017 to 1 April 2018, the “I SΦ with my Little Eye” exhibition beckons curious children to explore different geometric shapes amongst imaginative art installations. These installations include plastic pipe house structures, beanbags, a metal climber and a spiral plastic pipe cage-like structure.
The “I SΦ with my Little Eye” exhibition is designed by Shahrul Jamili, a mixed media artist who hopes his art will inspire children’s appreciation of design.

The exhibition invites children to go on a journey as ‘little spies’ and investigate various 3D play structures around The Ground Floor at The Artground. Through the interactive exhibits, children can experience the transformation of space and shapes as they navigate their way around the play space.
Don’t be fooled by the seemingly bare free-play premises. The open-ended play options are endless.
For young children, “I SΦ with my Little Eye” at The Artground provides ample opportunities to hone gross motor and their social skills too. At the same time, it encourages curiosity and open-ended exploration.
